ATERAS Partners with IBM Global Services for the 3rd Automated Conversion of CA-IDMS to IBM's DB2 for the Same State Government and Celebrates 7 Year Partnership.

DALLAS, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ATERAS, a leading provider of 100% automated solutions for legacy migration and modernization, announced today that the company has signed a new contract with IBM Global Services for the conversion of certain CA-IDMS applications to COBOL CICS DB2. ATERAS will perform the migration as a sub-contractor to IBM for the benefit of an agency of a state government. This is the third contract for the same customer. IBM chose ATERAS for its proven conversion technology and continued successes. The first conversion was deployed successfully and has been running in production for 2 years. The second conversion project for this customer was completed ahead of schedule and is planned to go live this year. This third migration will include the conversion of 80 IDMS schema record types, more than 150 LRF subschemas and more than 300 ADS/Online dialogs to COBOL/CICS DB2.

ATERAS will provide a turn-key solution that will include the conversion of the data, databases, and application software. The conversion will include 100% automated assessment and conversion with no required code freeze. In addition, the applications and databases will be 100% functionally equivalent including the retention of all business rules. No proprietary libraries, third party libraries or other software is required to run, use or maintain the applications after the conversion. Due to the high level of automation, ATERAS' rules-based conversions meet the technical and business requirements of the customer with dramatically shorter conversion times. The end result is a quality solution with an n-tier architecture that is easy to maintain, SOA enablement and high performance in the new applications.

ATERAS is an Advanced Partner Member with IBM and is recognized for its automated conversion solutions from IDMS, IMS and ADABAS to IBM's DB2. The company also celebrates its seven year of partnering with IBM in assessing, migrating and modernizing legacy databases and applications and enabling Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in business-critical applications. ATERAS has successfully demonstrated that the company's automated solutions for legacy migration and modernization were implemented at customer sites running on approved IBM hardware with a significant commitment to IBM technologies. Many of the migrations of mission critical systems included customers in the following markets: state governments, insurance, healthcare and universities.

"We are extremely pleased to partner with IBM Global Services on this account and are very excited to have the repeat business with this same customer, therefore validating our technology and delivery methodology. Our partnership with IBM has continued to strengthen over the last 7 years. We look forward to many more joint successes. Our versatile DB-Shuttle automation technology is not limited to IDMS conversions. We are currently completing migration projects converting Adabas and IMS to IBM's DB2." Scott Miller, CEO President ATERAS.
