Modernizing Your IMS Environment Series Part 1: Infrastructure and the DBA Team

Developing a low-risk strategy for IMS to Db2 migration

IMS DB has been embedded in organizations around the globe for the last few decades. With the application programmers and DBAs that have supported this platform so well over the years now heading off to retirement, there is a significant risk to the business as these skills depart the workforce.

In this session we discuss the benefits of a migration to Db2, including centralizing data to one platform, elimination of current data replication procedures and the required upgrades to new versions of IMS DB, as older versions go out of support. We also review the overall cost benefits and discuss how best to develop the internal business case for this low risk migration strategy.
