Are you planning to move away from your IBM i systems onto a new platform?
Need help with data analysis, mapping and migration?
KFA Connect can help you to make your move to your new system with their in-depth knowledge of IBM i databases and their many years of experience across industries including insurance, finance, manufacturing, and logistics.
If your strategy includes decommissioning your IBM i but you also need help to support your applications in the meantime, KFA can help.
IBM i Data Migration
In some instances, you may want to move all your data, master and transactions to a new system and in other instances, you may want access to the data but only need your master data in the new applications.
Sometimes data can be moved to another platform where it can be used purely for reporting of historical transactions and for satisfying regulatory requirements.
KFA can help with data analysis and mapping to help with decisions on which data is required and which is not. The creation of new databases for storing data and/or the creation of scripts to move your data to your new applications can all be undertaken by our team.
At first, the migration of an application from the IBM i can seem daunting but with clear requirements and careful planning, the work can be performed in an accurate and stress-free manner.
Examples of recent upgrade projects we have carried out for our customers.
In these examples, we detail how we moved one KFA customer’s data from a physical server to a more modern version to maximise the IBM’s power, speed, reliability, and security capabilities and to ensure they are supported in the future.
The other is an example of how we have moved another KFA customer to IBM i in the Cloud, including the installation of a new cloud-hosted IBM i Power System (v7.4), migration of the existing data to the new system, and implementation of a new back-up solution.
