CICS Migration Tool

The easiest, fastest and most cost effective migration to Command-Level code.

What is Command CICS?

Command CICS is a systems software product that has been designed to provide a migration path for CICS™ from a Macro-Level to a Command-Level environment.  Command-Level calls, resulting from the conversion, are made dynamically during execution of the Macro-Level programs.

Command CICS translates 100% of Macro-Level code to Command-Level code at execution time, immediately alleviating the worry of discontinued support for Macro-Level.  There is no need to allocate valuable time and resources to re-write or re-compile applications to use Command-Level calls and conventions needed to meet the requirements to migrate to CICS transaction server.  Command/CICS provides the same performance that is produced by manually converted programs.


Not sure if you have Macro-Level code that needs to be converted?  Com/Search is a unique FREE off-line utility to analyze your load modules and produce a report showing which applications contain Macro-Level calls, Command-Level calls, their language types and which Command CICS procedures to use.
