Approach & Solution
Technological evolution, in fact, fosters open architectures, based on shared standards, product compatibility and interoperability also from different suppliers.
In INAIL, the mainframes' evolution plan stems not only from these objectives, but also from the need to contain operating costs and reduce Mips consumption.
In order to reduce the impacts on INAIL's operations, the migration was carried out using a 'progressive approach'. This required, during the assessment phase, the identification of appropriate application sub-domains and of the related interactions.
For each "Application Island", a specific migration and application adaptation strategy was defined, in order to eliminate incompatibilities with the new infrastructure and other possible criticalities.
