RELOCATE

Migration Suite Relocate Edition

Migration Suite Relocate Edition

RelocateTM is ideal for Enterprises focused on cost savings. It shifts COBOL workloads to lower cost processors. It offers a new MIPS reduction solution for companies that opted to maintain their business applications in COBOL. RelocateTM shifts Batch and Backend CICS COBOL workload processing to either the mainframe zIIP or to the Cloud/x86 using a fully automated DevOps process. No changes are required to the data or runtime integration processes. It is seamless, thus delivers operational continuity into existing tools and console logs removing any disruptive change for data center operations staff.

Java provides you the opportunity to save millions of dollars in mainframe costs. It shifts all the mainframe workloads to the lower cost mainframe zIIP processor. In addition to that cost saving, RelocateTM allows your developers to continue to maintain in COBOL to limit the impact of change. When ready, CloudFrame automation can transition your application completely away from COBOL to a modern Cloud-ready Java application. 

With CloudFrame, you are making a strategic investment rather than no-value upgrade to COBOL 6. A strategic investment to begin your application modernization journey and save your business a lot of money along the way. 

Unlocking Value in Your Legacy Programs

CloudFrame offers a suite of products that unlock the value of decades-old legacy programs, bringing a fresh approach to mainframe modernization that significantly reduces the risk, time and costs of migrating mission-critical business applications. As a result, project success rates are much higher.

When ready, CloudFrame automation can transition your application completely away from COBOL to a modern Cloud-ready Java application. 

100% COBOL Functionality in Java

CloudFrame scans your monolithic Batch and CICS COBOL program code and generates 100% of your COBOL functionality in cloud native, performance optimized Java code with the business logic separated from the legacy data interfaces and process triggers. For added costs savings, it also supports COBOL with DB2 Stored Procedure calls.

No Data Changes Required

One key differentiator of CloudFrame is its ability to enable the new Java code running on Cloud or zIIP Engine to access data in its legacy format. The data can continue to reside on the mainframe or move to Cloud. This removes a significant risk to any project and accelerates implementations.

Retains Numeric Precision:

CloudFrame carries forward the numeric precision programmed in COBOL into the new Java programs. This allows business calculations performed on the new Java code to match exactly with the legacy programs. This feature makes business data validation a snap by simplifying and shortening Java testing.

Key Features for Modern Capabilities

Plug & Play New Technologies

CloudFrame generates Java modules for each legacy data interface that is separate from the business logic. With modularization, developers can modernize individual interfaces to newer technologies simply by replacing the legacy module with a modern equivalent. For example, replacing MQ with Kafka or DB2 database to a NoSQL database.

CloudFrame Migration Suite

provides the legacy code conversion tools, automation and DevOps integration to deliver modular Java that can integrate with modern technology available within your open architecture. As part of an open architecture, your new business requirements can be elevated to a whole new level by leveraging AI, Machine Learning, Cloud and Big Data technologies like NoSQL and Kafka. CloudFrame generated modular Java is designed to transition to these open technologies.

CloudFrame Data Connect

provides the runtime Java libraries that contain legacy data handlers for accessing legacy data formats to ensure your business data is processes exactly as its COBOL predecessor. These libraries ensure a like-for-like match between your legacy computations and data with its modern Java counterpart.

CloudFrame DevOps

provides the operational tools and seamless integration for your developers and change management/DevOps teams. It offers automated code promotion, tools to set up runtime environment configurations and an activity monitoring dashboard to monitor activity.
