Infinite Corporation has won a contract to migrate RPG-based AS/400 applications from IBM from the US Department of Justice.
The Department has been operating several IBM I Series (AS/400) LPARS using the System’s proprietary database that does not allow the data to be easily accessed by other applications in use by the US DOJ.
Infinite Corporation’s solution offers minimal risk. Using software tools developed specifically for these AS/400 services, the Infinite team recompiles RPG, COBOL, DDS and CL to run native on Windows or Linux, migrates data to MS SQL or Oracle and executes the unaltered code on Intel or x86 servers.
Infinite will work with DOJ to execute their applications on Windows and migrate data to MS SQL – resulting in reduced costs for industry-standard systems and software.
The company said the support of non-proprietary hardware and database will be more efficient. Information will be more usable using MS SQL database in place of the closed AS/400 system, according to Raquela Kaplan, marketing director, Infinite Corporation.
