Modernizing the database is a one-shot exercise. Building this competence on your team will not be of use in the future.

Keep your developers focused on projects related to your business and the future of your system, we can help you provide them with a database model that will allow for next generation developments.

Why entrusting Resolution Software for this project?

  • We have established a clear methodology based on proven best practices
  • Our project managers have IBM i and project management expertise
  • We can bring you rare skills on SQL knowledge and database management
  • Our experience will generate low demand for your company’s critical resources

We will ensure that the operational impact of modernization will be minimal


  • A modernization professional will conduct a Diagnostic of your database.
  • Based on the results of the Diagnostic Report, Resolution will define with you and implement a custom Modernization Action Plan.
  • The developers who know your applications will be included in the project to provide validation and define new SQL functionality into your new database structure, helped by the decision-making tools of Xcase for i and Resolution Software database experts.

Keeping in mind your main requirements all along the project:

  • You do not want your operations to stop. We know to handle difficult downtime constraints of near-24×7 operations. For example, we optimize the potentially lengthy process of copying data from the old PF to the new SQL Table and building the indexes.
  • Your data must be preserved: Your valuable data remains secure on your server.
