Re-hosting

General

Re-hosting has become a viable option for many CIOs who need to cut the cost of IBM mainframe.

Re-hosting of applications from the legacy environment to a new platform provides a low-cost and low-risk alternative to re-writing the application or to package implementation.

Why MOST

MOST has the tools, skills, and experience in both mainframe and open system technology to provide innovative and automated re-hosting services from IBM mainframe to Linux/Unix/Windows (LUW).

What We Do

MOST's re-hosting activities include the migration of:

3rd-party products

Examples of technical activities related to cross-platform re-hosting:
 

  • Identification of  all software components including 3rd party products required for the LUW environment

  • Adaptation of existing application code to the target LUW environment

  • Modification of interfaces between the target LUW and external applications

  • Conversion of data entities to ASCII

  • Adaptation of security, printing and operational components such as job scheduler and internal utilities

  • Conversion of the archive, backup and historical data to the target LUW environment
