Most of the conversions seem to have services with some software, rather
than just software. There are quite a few companies involved.
Conversion to DB2 is common enough that we have a service offering
and a Software Migration Project Office, or SMPO. We have a wide
range of facilities and services for migration.
ibm.com/Solutions/softwaremigration/

They often work with another consultant, such as ManTech to
accomplish the migration.

There is an interesting paper on the web that discusses conversion
from Oracle Unix to DB2 for OS/390.
www.s390.ibm.com/unix/porting/orctdb2.html

There are a number of red books about conversion, for example
Converting from Oracle AIX to DB2 for OS/390, SG24-5478. Get them from the
web.
ibm.com/redbooks

The outline for a conversion project is also in the older red book,
Planning for Conversion to the DB2 Family: Methodology
and Practice, GG24-4445. The platform for the source and
target will often make a difference in the precise response.
For example, there is a red book on converting from Oracle
7.1 to DB2 for AIX Version 2, SG24-2567 and another on
converting to the 390 OpenEdition,
Porting Applications to the OpenEdition MVS Platform, GG24-4473

The topic of conversion is a frequent subject at user groups
and education, such the DB2 Technical Conferences, IDUG, Share, ...
www.training.ibm.com/ibmedu/conf/db2/
www.idug.org
www.share.org

Wayne,
There is a successfully used software/services package available through ISI
Australia, called 2BDB2.
Contact Peter Richards([login to unmask email]) or visit the ISI
website, www.isi.com.au, and click on products.
Conversion requires no changes to application code except in exceptional
circumstances. It has been successfully used by a number of clients.
Ciao 4 Nao,

We went through a similar conversion and used a company called P.O.V.
Information technology out of Belgium. They converted DATACOM/IDEAL code
to DB2/COBOL code for us. Was not perfect and there was still a far
amount of additional work to do, mostly for error handling, but it
definitely helped cut down the code conversion effort. Their e-mail
address is [login to unmask email] URL is http://www.pov-it.com. I have an
800 number of 800.285.8582. Not sure how accurate it is. Sacramento
