Short description:

Designing and implementing or reimplementing Unix programs for the file-based exchange of data between IBM systems to be replaced, an Oracle database on Unix servers, directories addressed via WAN, and external data sources; monitoring mechanisms.


Data exchange occurs for numerous file formats of IBM systems via FTP to the Oracle database on a Unix server and vice versa; between defined drives via FTP or CICS (SMB, NetBEUI) on different Unix servers, from external data sources into the Oracle database.

Technical description:

The goal is to incrementally replace the IBM-based IT solutions with Oracle-based IT solutions to be newly developed, with HP/UX servers and Windows clients, over a period of several years. Because the ongoing production cannot be interrupted, all relevant data are constantly kept up-to-date in parallel.
