Legacy Modernization

Legacy Modernization

ePATHUSA provides tools and services to migrate or convert the following legacy languages and databases:

  • COBOL
  • IDMS
  • IMS
  • DataCom
  • JCL/Procs
  • VSAM
  • PL/1
  • Adabas

The migration or conversion solution helps organizations automatically migrate applications to modern, open technologies and database management systems. Upon delivery, a client will have functionally equivalent, seamlessly integrated applications that provide a reduced cost structure and improved business agility in latest technology. The delivered applications are SOA enabled and able to take advantage of new technical capabilities. Legacy migration and conversion can be made to another mainframe system or to a platform such as Microsoft .NET and Java.

Legacy Assessment

A mainframe assessment is a solid method of understanding the complexity of the existing program and script components of the mainframe environment before deciding whether to perform a conversion, modernization or migration project. Our assessment includes full definition of the goals and areas of concentration prior to performing data collection. ePATHUSA uses automation technology to perform a very detailed and targeted assessment of the entire mainframe application environment. We will involve Customers’ Stakeholders such as Executives/Sponsors, Managers, Functional & Technical teams to ensure smooth sunset of legacy applications to provide the ability to fully define conversion plans including assignments, responsibilities, timeframes and costs.

The ePATHUSA migration and conversion strategy involves four key phases overseen by our Project Management Team:

  • IT Assessment
  • Database and Data Conversion
  • Application Conversion
  • Testing
