Stability and performance in data processing
Sulzer’s roots do not just lie in mainframe, although mainframe still remains an important component of our service offering. We successfully assist clients in all business processes with experience, knowledge and expertise acquired over 35 years operating in applications. Still today, mainframe offers specific benefits in terms of performance and stability, even if decentralised interfaces are increasingly used. We combine the “old world” with EAI servers, JAVA applications and SAP systems for future-proof solutions.
Mainframe offers opportunities for application development and infrastructure services throughout the entire software life cycle. They extend from the establishment of a test environment to data mirroring and the installation and management of basic frameworks and tools for application development.
For many years we have been successfully using the languages PL/1 and Cobol with our clients, implementing highly available online applications based on IMS and CICS and securely processing data from DB2 or DL/I databases. When it comes to development, we do not restrict ourselves to the creation of programs, but also have the associated JCL and OPC job control system in focus to offer a seamless homogeneous system.
As your partner, we support and assist your company in the following processes:
- Adapting and developing new individual software to run on mainframes
- Migration of the existing software to secure operation on transparent terms
- Exploiting potential improvements with run time and stability in your programs
We offer a wide range of products that cover relevant areas of mass data processing for mainframe technology:
SCMS is a software repository for mainframes, which revision-securely stores the sources of all programs installed on the host and is also capable of providing any number of test and integration systems with consistent software versions.
eSCMS And RDz
eSCMS and RDz have revolutionised development for mainframes based on the Eclipse development environment. The Eclipse eSCMS extension supports the life cycle of all mainframe software components. The Eclipse RDz extension provides users with state-of-the-art analysis, editing and testing tools.
