HTWC approach was focused to reduces the mainframe costs and legacy risks by migrating the applications off the mainframe and re-structuring it using all the modern software tools and capabilities from the set of our disposal.
The project was followed up and performed with a detailed and planned process development that had permitted to distinguish all the regional offices into single sub project. FIAT has decided to make as a first step, from the overall rehosting project, modernizing all the applications cross regions in Europe from z/OS to UNIX.
