Mainframe migration from CA-View to Hyland Onbase for Ohio based Clinic


HOUSTON, TX, October 13, 2017 – DSI is pleased to announce the successful completion of the extraction process of the reports and metadata for Hyland from CA-View under z/OS to staging storage in an open systems environment for the end client, Ohio based multispecialty academic hospital.

The CA-View version 12.0 (SAR) archive was hosted on a mainframe under z/OS v1.13 and there were multiple LPARS sharing a single CA View database. The client had 6 TB of archived report data stored on Virtual tapes on an Oracle VSM virtual tape library which had approximately 3 million reports.

The migration was performed via remote access (on customer provided Windows servers) using Data Strategies' proven off-line document migration platform. DSI used its proprietary Document Genie software to extract documents and metadata from CA View/SAR. The data extraction and conversion process was executed through remote access and the clients mainframe was not used other than for raw data export from virtual tapes.

The report level metadata was exported by our process and ingested into Hyland's import processor. Any page level indexes that were stored in the CA-View database were extracted and passed to Hyland.
