Cedacri, a leading international provider of outsourced IT services for banks and financial institutions,
completed a successful mainframe migration project leveraging Veryant COBOL software and UniKix Mainframe Rehosting technology from Clerity Solutions.
Cedacri was motivated to help customers adopt modern, flexible IT infrastructures and take advantage of virtualization and cloud computing in a secure, convenient manner without sacrificing existing application investments.
Mainframe COBOL programs were moved to the isCOBOL Evolve from Veryant. IBM® CICS® transactions, Batch workloads, Easytrieve programs, VSAM files, and IBM DB2® databases were migrated using UniKix Mainframe Rehosting technology.
Besides protecting existing application investments and minimizing end-user impact, the solution was a good fit for Cedacri because tight interoperability was maintained with legacy systems post-migration. End users continue accessing the application through a standard 3270 layer or a custom Web-based application, and support for IBM WebSphere® MQ and CICS distributed program link (DPL) functionality was maintained post-migration.
