Webinar: "Von IBM IMS/DB zu Db2" am 25.10.2023

You probably know all the good reasons to replace your IMS databases:

  • Reduction of cost and maintaining multiple database technologies
  • Lack of flexibility of IMS databases
  • Diminishing know-how and specialists
  • No successors available
  • Difficult connection with new technologies like Mobile Cloud etc.

The hurdles for replacing IMS-databases are huge and the applications are running smoothly. These, often mission critical, applications are big, complex and the documentation is in most cases not sufficient for the task ahead.

From hierarchical to relational - 100% automated

The aim is to convert the application to clean SQL, i.e. not to "translate" the IMS accesses to SQL at runtime using a proprietary intermediate layer. The customised, fully automated transformation with AMELIO Modernization Platform guarantees the consistent and audit-proof migration of your COBOL and PL/I applications.

How can you replace your IMS system safely and efficiently?

Delta Software Technology presented a reliable solution that gives you the following advantages:

  • You are supported in defining the new relational data model.
  • The transformation is carried out securely and completely automatically - with automatic integration of the changes from the parallel ongoing development.
  • The testing effort is drastically reduced thanks to the complete automation of all changes.
  • There is no footprint and no vendor lock-in.

Webinar 'IBM IMS/DB ablösen' sowie Erfahrungsaustausch mit Gothaer und Provinzial

Review of the Webinar

We were able to win Gothaer Solutions GmbH and Provinzial Versicherung AG for this webinar. The participants took the opportunity to ask their questions directly to the companies' experts who have already successfully replaced their IMS databases.

Dr. Daniela Schilling (CEO, Delta Software Technology GmbH) presented the Delta solution AMELIO:
"Automated and Secure Migration from IBM IMS/DB to Db2 with AMELIO Modernisation Platform"

In the subsequent discussion, experts from Gothaer and Provinzial were on hand to answer questions from the audience. They reported that production and development continued undisturbed and that the migration project ensures the maintainability and future viability of the systems. Processes have been standardised and, thanks to targeted and, of course, automatically implemented optimisation of the access logic, individual applications now run even more efficiently than with the hierarchical database system.

When asked what they would do differently next time, both customers agreed: less testing and no more manual migration! This would save them even more time, money and nerves, because Delta's automated solution simply works.
