Solution highlights

A leading credit card company was struggling to maintain and leverage their mainframe portfolio of applications to meet the business goal of shorter time-to-market. The existing system needed 36,000 MIPS and over 14 MLOC. Infosys partnered with the client to simplify, optimize and remediate applications that were to continue on mainframe. In addition to curation of knowledge residing in legacy systems over 6 months, Infosys transferred some applications to open systems architecture.

Business value

The modernization implementation accelerated time-to-market for new features and releases by 70% while reducing development and infrastructure cost by 35%.

Solution highlights

The Infosys solution involved end-to-end migration of the client's applications to a modern architecture in order to bring down costs, increase operational efficiency and boost the performance of their IT landscape. We achieved this by:

  • Migrating the applications in less than 6 months – this included 700 batch programs, 250 jobs and 1000 online programs with 750 screens to Micro Focus
  • Migrating MQ Online in mainframe to MQ Online in Micro Focus-Linux
  • Carrying out enhancements in Micro Focus
  • Replacing Control-D reports with CMOD in the re-hosting platform

Business value

The solution enabled the client to:

  • Modernize all unsupported technologies
  • Reduce total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) with zero business process impact
  • Project a reduction in mainframe costs by USD 20-25 million over the next five years
  • Achieve easier development and deployment of apps in the new Micro Focus environment
  • Seamlessly integrate all 80+ AS400 with the Microsoft HIS server

Solution highlights

Following the briefing from the client, the Infosys team:

  • Used billing reports generated from SMF data to identify high CPU consumers
  • Analyzed and remediated code to reduce the million instructions per second (MIPS) count
  • Conducted an anti-pattern analysis leveraging Infosys proprietary tools

Business value

By optimizing processes, we successfully achieved:

  • Code remediation and rationalization
  • Documentation of best practices and communicating those to developers in the client’s organization

Our efforts resulted in CPU savings of around USD2 million per year.

Solution highlights

Infosys assessed the existing landscape and business situation and delivered the following solution:

  • Financial transaction workflows across major channels were analyzed
  • Existing rules in batch systems for non-financial transactions were analyzed and requirements written for new modules based on these
  • Reusable models were identified and cloned, and invoked by CTG as integration services
  • Governance rules were prepared for various layers in compliance with JADR

Business value

By empowering team members to take independent decisions, we were able to rapidly and successfully deliver a solution that:

  • Achieved the key business objective of teller platform transformation within a year
  • Achieved faster time-to-market through key initiatives like mobile banking
  • Defined solution architecture principles, decentralizing decision-making

Solution highlights

Infosys undertook extensive reengineering and enhancement of their portfolio of 72 legacy and client-server applications. Some of the reengineering tasks included:

  • Enhancing applications to handle additional product types
  • Developing more user-friendly front-ends
  • New notification systems
  • Data migration to DB2 performance improvements

Business value

On completion of the reengineering, the client achieved tangible outcomes such as:

  • Reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Optimization of the ramp-up strategy with a core onsite team aided by a flexible offshore team
