Many business critical enterprise applications are based on IDMS
database. IT departments are constantly under pressure to improve
response times, support for larger volume of transaction processing,
support Web based information delivery and business intelligence.
The dwindling supply of programmers with knowledge of IDMS coupled
with inherent weakness of IDMS is constraining IT department's response
time to meet sustenance-engineering demands.
The preferred solution to this problem is migration of IDMS applications
to a relational databases like DB2 etc. The advanced feature provided
by relational databases, coupled with multi-platform environment
support provides a infrastructure, which would support the growing
needs of the enterprise application users.
An IDMS to DB2 renovation project is complex and requires careful
planning and meticulous execution. The primary cause for concern
is the software constraints and complexities that are common to
legacy systems as these systems frequently lack basic documentation
and in-house resources with application knowledge. Another level
of complexity when migrating Legacy Systems to DB2 arises as such
systems are based on the traditional system development model that
separates the various programs from Data Structures. It is essential
to use a tool that can provide system wide, application level, program
level and data level relationship, association and impact through
out the database renovation process.
For enterprises who are challenged by the maintenance, enhancement
and performance constraints of IDMS DB/DC based applications, IARS/IDMS
offers a compelling solution. Unlike traditional solutions, the
fixed price and managed delivery feature of IARS/IDMS ensures risk
free IDMS DB/DC application renovation to the client.
