Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch
Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch provides the target environment for migrating mainframe applications from IBM z/OS to an open systems application grid running Oracle Tuxedo. IBM CICS applications run unchanged using standard CICS APIs and services, while batch applications use JCL functions and common utilities to execute as on the mainframe. These capabilities are available on top of the proven, robust, scalable Tuxedo infrastructure at a fraction of the mainframe cost. Combined with the automated migration tools for adapting COBOL programs, converting JCL, and migrating mainframe data in Tuxedo Application Rehosting Workbench, this solution can simplify and accelerate mainframe re-hosting projects while reducing overall cost and risk. Tuxedo's SOA-enabled integration capabilities help to further modernize and extend re-hosted applications with Tuxedo's Web Services, SCA containers, JCA adapter, and Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA, BI, AIA and other offerings.
Re-host IBM mainframe applications to a proven platform
Dramatically reduce cost of mainframe CICS and Batch applications with an agile, open, hot-pluggable stack that improves IT flexibility and responsiveness
Address mainframe skill attrition risk with simplified architecture and operations
Reduce complexity of rigid IT infrastructure and lack of choice, regain control
Reduce migration cost, risk, project time, and complexity
CICS and Batch runtimes allow over 90% of application code to be re-hosted "as is"
Preserve COBOL logic, CICS APIs, File/DB access, 3270 screens, and JCL job structure - no user impact, and developers retain familiar APIs and functions
Tuxedo Application Rehosting workbench automatically adapts COBOL code, converts JCL, and helps migrate data
Invest savings in ongoing application modernization
Reduce integration costs and SOA-enable rehosted application using open, SOA-Ready Tuxedo environment
Extend applications using COBOL, C/C++, Python, or Ruby components in Tuxedo's ATMI or SCA containers, incorporate Java/JEE via WebLogic-Tuxedo Connector or Tuxedo JCA adapter, use AIA to integrate with Oracle Applications
