Success Story Progressive Insurance Company completes conversion of IDMS to DB2 in 10 months using ATERAS DB-Shuttle Full migration of IDMS and ADS/Online to DB2 and COBOL CICS using DB-Shuttle automation was performed in 10 months without disruption to business activities. See how it can work for you. Ghallenge Progressive Insurance Company wanted to convert its mission-critical CORE claims database and application from CA-IDMS to IBM DB2* without disrupting the business operations performed by 10,000 users and 2 million transactions a day. To support its continuing growth and market expansion, Progressive needed to eliminate IDMS and its proprietary processing languages from the Progressive claims processing cycle. The need to access data directly from multiple Web applications without complicated programming was a driving force to migrate. Progressive required a system that could function efficiently in its high-demand environment. Another factor driving the changes was the increased difficulty and expense of finding skilled team members to work with the IDMS database and applications. Transitioning to a relational database and more open languages would help ensure the availability of a larger pool of skilled resources to maintain and enhance the applications into the future. Progressive required the conversion solution to be 100-percent automated, while still guaranteeing functional equivalency and maintaining all existing business rules. The migration needed to be transparent to the end-user community and could not disrupt any business-related activities. Solution DB-Shuttle Automated Technology ATERAS performed an automated assessment of P rog ressive’s I T environment. In the assessment phase, goals were defined and all source code and database components were collected, counted, inventoried and measured. The interrelationships of the components were identified and reported. The methods of database access were detailed. This assessment provided a conversion project plan, task assignments, responsibilities, time frames and costs. ATERAS used DB-Shuttle to generate the new DB2 Database Definition Language syntax. DB-Shuttle used the structure of the original IDMS database (including 265 record types and hundreds of set relationships) to generate a set of high-speed extract programs and the JCL to run the extracts. DB-Shuttle generated the new application code, converting the ADS/Online language component to CICS* COBOL and all of the COBOL IDMS calls to DB2 access through a high-performance data-access layer. The new applications were immediately ready for testing by the Progressive teams. Five IDMS databases and 5 million lines ATERAS 660 LBJ Freeway, Suite 210 Dallas, TX 75240 Anna Stamatelatos (972) 664-9005 or (972) 664-9007 info@ateras.com www.ateras.com of code were converted to use the new DB2 relational database, including 397 IDMS MAPS, 603 ADS/Online dialogs, 10 IDMS ADSA Structures and 1,797 IDMS COBOL Programs. The converted programs are high performance, nonproprietary and fully relational. The new configuration helps reduce overall cost, improve access to the data and provide the business with greater agility and f lexibility for enhancements and future expansion. ibmsystemsmag.com/mainframe/buyersguide 2011 29 http://www.ateras.com http://www.ibmsystemsmag.com/mainframe/buyersguide
