Main Advantages

The main advantages of moving to an open systems environment would be price performance, salability, hardware and software cost savings, the ease of implementing client server technology and complete interconnection of multiple platforms via Internet.

  • Modern Graphical User Interfaces and WEB Browser Emulators
  • Proven to produce enhanced throughput - true multitasking o/s
  • Better cost/performance ratio
  • Immediate Open System benefits
  • Guaranteed to host mission-critical systems
  • Executive Information Systems (EIS)
  • Data Warehousing is well supported on a range of SMP O/S servers
  • Years of migration and proven expert systems technology experience

Pit Falls

Even though the porting exercise from the mainframe environment to an Open System platform is relatively easy, there are dangers to be aware of.

  • The biggest danger is to assume that the new environment comes standard with the necessary print spoolers, batch scheduling managers and other utilities that mainframe users have become accustomed to. This is most definitely not true. It is an essential part of the initial evaluation process to evaluate third-party utilities. Excellent third-party utilities are available at very reasonable prices that are user-friendlier and less resource intensive than the standard utilities.
  • Character set orientation difference. (EBCDIC vs. ASCII)
  • Ensure that all software you intend running on the open platform is "Supported" by the vendor.
  • Use experienced professionals to launch your company into the Open Systems world as it is extremely flexible but with no resemblance to the mainframe. Total Solution goes further than just migrating data and source code.

Cronus Consulting has a proven track record and has developed tried and tested software products to replace the mainframe tools and to make your application work on the new platform with least amount of risk.
