System Migrations

Assembler language conversions are often only part of a company’s overall attempt to optimize their IT operations. A larger project, such as a complete or partial system migration, may involve several of the following:

  • Multiple languages (Assembler, PL/I, COBOL, DYL [CA Vision:Results], Fortran, etc.)
  • Scripting, batch job/printing control (JCL, REXX, etc.)
  • Data conversion
  • Database migration (IMS, VSAM, DB2, Oracle, etc.)
  • Hardware migration or server consolidation (IBM, Unix, Data General, Unisys, VMS, etc.)
  • Third party integration (Syncsort, CA7, CA11, Endevor, etc.)
  • and much more …

If this is true for your project, call a Datatek project manager today at 800-536-4TEK to discuss how our System Migration services can be of benefit to you.

Datatek’s CAM Services — Helping You Make Strategic Decisions

Businesses which make the strategic decision to retain the investments that they have made in their existing IT systems now face a variety of options:

  • Should you consolidate to a single programming language and, if so, what language should that be?
  • What hardware/operating system platform should you choose?
  • Do you need to convert data?
  • Should you migrate to a different database vendor?
  • How do you reduce project risk?
  • How does the migration impact the resources that are needed for your current daily IT operations?

For over 15 years, Datatek has been answering these types of questions for clients and providing them solutions. In every migration solution, Datatek has strived to use automation whenever possible.

  • Automation reduces your costs and shortens project time-lines.
  • Automation reduces your risk by performing tasks consistently and predictably.
  • Automation offers you the flexibility needed for changes during the migration process.
  • Automation allows you to continue development on your systems for the entire migration.

While automation provides all these types of benefits, Datatek recognizes that a “one-size fits all” automation approach does not meet the needs and preferences of most clients. Datatek resolves this issue with customized automated migrations (CAM). A CAM combines the benefits of automation with the benefit of customer specific customizations which are usually only available through manual migrations. By providing the best of both worlds, Datatek’s CAM services can offer your business cost effective, low-risk, and customizable migration solutions.
