GFT's high level of technical expertise enabled us to migrate a critical component of a Cobol-based host application to a modern, cloud-enabled infrastructure. In addition, GFT ensured the transfer of know-how to the Deka team as well as the necessary performance optimisations in the job flow.”

El reto

Transformation of the host-based application landscape while reducing operating costs

  • Modernise a key part of the existing core banking application by connecting the sales partners to the depot system with only minimal code changes
  • Replatform as an initial step in the transformation of business-critical applications with continuous cooperation with all existing peripheral systems and databases
  • Reduction of running costs for infrastructure and software by reducing MIPS, especially at reporting date processing (month-end/year-end)

Additional requirements for the migrated application:

  • Operability without emulation in the target environment
  • Ongoing maintenance by existing developers

Compromiso

Modernisation of the Cobol-based host application by building a modern target environment, migrating and commissioning relevant software

GFT managed the end-to-end migration, including:

  • Definition of a modern, container-based target architecture and support client during deployment
  • Migration of the selected application modules and transfer of host-specific elements, such as sequential files, into platform-compatible solutions. Part of the migration were the job nets of the migrated application itself, as well as their embedding into the existing job net for all further host applications.
  • Documentation at all levels - from conception to operating manual - and coaching of employees

Beneficio

Increased performance, boosted efficiency and reduced costs

  • Despite the necessary additional data exchange between host and Unix system up to 90 minutes faster processing of the processes
  • Reduction of previously occurring additional MIPS costs for key date processing at the end of the month and year
