Barmenia Versicherungen is a large independent insurance group based in Wuppertal, Germany, where the district of Barmen lends the insurance company its name.
The SAS DWH environment was to be migrated from OS z/OS to Linux within the scope of a mainframe replacement project. adesso took on the full migration of its programs as well as the mapping of z/OS DWH operating processes under Linux.
Barmenia Insurance now benefits from cost savings on host licences. The full DWH workload was migrated from z/OS to Linux and user guides were improved by means of setup wizards. Not only that, but the company is able to manage settings and personal data independently and has created the basis for a modern DWH architecture.
