IMS to Db2 Migration: How a Fortune 500 Company Made the Move in Record Time with Minimal Disruption

Hear first-hand from Damon Anderson, Manager of Data Services at a leading Fortune 500 global distribution company, about how he researched and solved his IMS-to-DB2 migration challenge.

IMS applications continue to run many of today’s leading financial, manufacturing, and government agencies’ most critical business processes. However, we all know the developers that wrote and supported those applications are fast leaving the work force, creating a major skills gap, unwanted risk, and a pressing need for an efficient Db2 migration path.

While some organizations are having to turn to expensive 3rd party vendors to support these applications, the potential data security breaches and challenges in ensuring consistent quality of application support and maintenance make that a risky, expensive proposition.

Hear how Damon and his team mitigated these challenges by migrating their IMS application databases to Db2 with Syncsort DL/2 and how it helped them:

  • avoid a skills gap
  • eliminate their MLC costs for IMS DB and the significant costs for 3rd party IMS Support tools
  • create a platform for future modernization of their core business applications
