State of New Mexico successfully completes data migration with Anubex

The Tax and Revenue Department of New Mexico, a US State agency performed a migration from IDMS, a pre-relational database, to SQL Server. The migration to SQL Server increased productivity of all employees and enabled cost reduction. Anubex performed the migration entirely from its Antwerp, Belgium headquarter

Rationale

Following a thorough analysis, the New Mexico Taxation & Revenue Department (TRD) decided to standardise its database platform. The tax department experienced difficulties in the exploitation of data in their existing database, which contains historical information on taxpayers in New Mexico. The staff members responsible for maintenance and support of the IDMS Legacy application on an z/OS mainframe were all approaching retirement age.

Selection

After an extensive search for a suitable supplier, Jacque Geoffrion ended up at Anubex: ‘Compared to other firms in the same line of business, Anubex has a different approach. They were able to realise the fastest migration and with fewer risks, thanks to their specialised software applications and own methodology. And all at a competitive price. By responding to the project’s specific demands, Anubex was able to understand our current IDMS environment in no time.’
