Automated IDMS Migration and IDMS Modernization
The IDMS database life cycle is coming to an end and more and more companies regard an IDMS migration, or IDMS modernization as imperative. The first version of IDMS was developed in the early 1960s, hence it is quite obvious why companies are looking at an IDMS conversion to move from their legacy IDMS systems to modern technologies. New versions and fixes are rare nowadays and it is extremely hard to find experienced IDMS and ADSO personnel. As the install base decreases, maintenance fees are rising in order to compensate for the loss of revenue.
IDMS used to be a very efficient technology and moving it to the modern relational world, for example an IDMS migration to DB2, IDMS migration to Oracle or IDMS to SQL Server is not a trivial process. BluePhoenix’s proven legacy migration toolset and methodology enable organizations to move away from the IDMS database toward modern environments while leveraging past investments and improving the application service level.
The BluePhoenix IDMS migration solution is targeted at IDMS databases, which are running on IBM mainframes (z\OS, z\VSE) and Fujitsu VME systems (formerly ICL) mainframes. BluePhoenix’s automated legacy migration tools migrate IDMS databases to modern relational databases (like IDMS conversions to DB2, IDMS to SQL Server, or IDMS to Oracle). With extensive experience and a rich portfolio of large projects, the BluePhoenix IDMS conversion and IDMS modernization solution is the fastest, safest, and most cost efficient solution for the IDMS legacy migration challenge.
