We are looking for migrating/re-platforming from Natural/Adabas from Mainframe to Linux/Unix/Windows. The applications has around ~200 JCLS ,~ 3000 Natural programs and ~50 Adabas Tables . I have gone through some threads and comes across challenges related to Collating sequences , endian settings etc.
Few questions :-
- Are there any other issues that will also need to be taken care of . I see references to some old posts but those have been removed ?
- As I read endian settings depend on the processor so is there really a need to take care of ending settings when moving from one operating system to another?
- For Data migration from Mainframes to LUW what are the things that needs to be considered?
- Is there a way to calculate the effort that will be required to port this application from Mainframe to LUW?
Thanks in advance.
