Clerity, a mainframe migration and modernization solution provider, is expanding its niKix mainframe rehosting software suite to Microsoft Windows Server 2008. The rehosting software provides a mission-critical environment for deploying online and batch mainframe CICS, IMS, IDMS, Adabas, Natural, and other legacy assets on open, standards-based systems. By leveraging existing applications, skill sets, and data investments, Clerity technology reduces ongoing IT costs from 30 to 70 percent and optimizes legacy investments without sacrificing current functionality or introducing risk into the migration process.

Mainframe migration with rehosting software from Clerity and Windows Server 2008 will deliver several key customers benefits:

  • Reduced migration risk and rapid payback periods by protecting existing investments in CICS, COBOL, JCL and related environments wherever possible

  • Lower total cost of ownership and competitive economies of scale for ongoing operations

  • Enhanced IT flexibility and enterprise-wide data interoperability

  • Broad access to a large pool of skilled systems administrators

  • Choice of deployment on a range of and Intel x86, x64, and Itanium-based systems. Migrating to standards-based server platforms dramatically reduces ongoing operational costs and provides a dynamic, flexible environment for subsequent modernization initiatives such as SOA integration, user-interface transformation, and selective business process management improvements.
