IAI Project Synopsis: Pacific Exchange
IAI was engaged to assist Pacific Exchange (PCX) in the migration of their Trading, Clearing, and Billing system from the IBM mainframe CICS/COBOL/DB2/VSAM platform to a Microsoft Windows platform utilizing the Micro Focus Mainframe Migration suite and Microsoft SQL Server. The application was comprised of approximately 1 million lines of code and was critically important to PCX. IAI’s approach to the engagement was to work side by side with PCX staff, mentoring them in all aspects of the migration process and intervening when necessary to assure project progress. IAI also converted the DB2 to Microsoft SQL Server.
The project was conducted over a 10 month schedule and resulted in a successful production deployment of the migrated system in the Microsoft Windows platform, retaining the CICS/COBOL and mainframe JCL, along with hundreds of indexed and sequential files, and accessing a SQL Server database.
