IT Urbanization

Urbanize and streamline your information system

Issue

Components overlap in an information system makes it difficult, even impossible to change or update an application in a simple and cost-effective way, with limited effects on the rest of the system.

An urbanized system can be modernized in blocks. Use our agile urbanization service to modernize your system and meet users’ expectations within time and cost constraints.

 

Overview

Urbanization consists in splitting the information system into a set of function blocks as defined by the business process model. All information system components are then listed and each of them is matched with the correct function block.

A block owns its data and can give an outside view of its properties over time.

An Urbanized system

 

A building-block must (be able to):

  • Be reusable
  • Be able to change version without affecting the rest of the information system
  • Technical as well as functional documentation should be readily available
  • Not disrupt the rest of the information system if it fails

 

Our offer and methodology

Our Urbanization offer is based both on a technical and a functional approach. We use our Move Recode-Workbench software engineering workbench to analyse your system and create the process diagram. Both operations are highly automated thanks to the CASE workbench, which brings you significant benefits in productivity and quality.

 

Supported environments

We can implement IS process modelling in all environments:

OS: MVS, DOS VSE, VM, GCOS 7, GCOS 8, VMS, ICL, UNIX, AS400, WINDOWS, HP3000, etc.

OS: MVS, DOS VSE, VM, GCOS 7, GCOS 8, VMS, ICL, UNIX, AS400, WINDOWS, HP3000, etc.

We have strong functional skills in banking, insurance, pension plans and benefits, life insurance, retail, human resources, etc.
