According to the company, the modernisation project will begin with a global assessment, detailed analysis, data transformation and testing of four of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development’s (DWD) mission-critical systems, which process between 300,000 and 500,000 transactions daily plus additional batches each night.
BluePhoenix Solutions will migrate these four systems databases and applications from DWD’s current IDMS environment to IBM’s DB2 environment, while remaining on the mainframe. This project will additionally include the conversion of several COBOL and COBOL-CICS programs that perform SQL I/O directly on the DB2 database.
Yaron Tchwella, president of BluePhoenix Solutions, said: This contract win underscores the growing opportunity that exists today for BluePhoenix Solutions to diversify our customer base and continue to grow. Particularly in tough economic times such as these, government agencies, just as their corporate counterparts, are faced with the need to provide the same or better services to their constituents on a lower budget.
