Platform (Server Migration) and Operating System Migrations

An outdated server can cause more harm to an organization’s bottom line than the cost associated with migrating data and applications. Datatrend Technologies has a proven track record in performing server migrations – from one platform to another, including UNIX migration and Linux migration – whether from one type of UNIX based platform to another, or to a UNIX/Linux environment from another type of environment. We are also well-versed in system migrations: moving programs and transferring your data without loss through data migration, database migration, and application migration. Whatever variety of migration you need, Datatrend can provide one that will eliminate pain points and ensure a smooth transition.

Mainframe Migration

Mainframe Migration extends the benefits of an open environment to legacy applications. By reusing mainframe applications and data on high performance x86 servers or midrange systems, total cost of ownership can be improved across an IT organization, while preserving existing investments in applications and staff. Other benefits include reduced complexity and risk with minimal to no end user disruption. Datatrend’s services include migration justification, consultation, assessment, project guidance, implementation, and technology transfer.

Software Conversions

Datatrend Technologies has significant experience with software migration/conversion. Our first such migration offering involved porting Series/1 EDX/EDL applications to C/AIX platforms. Today, we offer a multitude of software migration offerings, including mainframe application downsizing, application consolidation, web application and e-commerce migrations, database migrations, and corporate messaging migrations. Datatrend offers an array of AIX/POWER services and solutions that can be reviewed in detail on the AIX/POWER Services page.
