ChainSys’ Upgrade Approach

Impact assessment

ChainSys’ Data Management tools help review the functional impact of the entire upgrade project. This includes a detailed assessment of the footprint of existing applications, customizations, infrastructure, and business processes.

Upgrade Roadmap - Develop a high-level upgrade strategy, including developing the project vision, project management methodology, version strategy and testing strategy.

Upgrade Estimate - Our prebuilt dashboard Provides an overall estimate of upgrade project time and cost. The assessment of the Volume of the data helps to plan and optimise the cutover timeline.

Data Quality Assessment - Our data Quality service gives an opportunity to fix the data issues thereby the management can drive their decisions based on the right data.

CEMLI Analysis Services

Use Chainsys’ CEMLI Assessment Tool to evaluate and reduce or simplify your organization's existing CEMLIs. Value added Assessment in the new release helps to optimize, reduce/retire the customization and reduce total cost of ownership. It also simplifies the ongoing Maintainability and sustainability of your IT program.

Technology Impact

Technical infrastructure requirements are legitimate points to consider when changing application update strategy such as client architecture, High Availability, disaster recovery site, application server, web services, customization, database options and various storage options. Historical Data can be assessed and business users can decide to Archive/Purge the data or construct an Enterprise Data Warehouse (On-premise/Cloud) for Analytical and Statutory purposes. dataZense’s Machine Learning and AI capabilities are used for dynamic reporting and analytics for historic data.

Data Security Assessment and remediation

To enhance Security & Compliance, Chainsys’ Data management Products help mask the sensitive data in test instances and in production, for both the front-end application and back-end databases during the upgrade.

Patch Assessment and Execution

We have a proven methodology to upgrade your DB Upgrade from 11g/12c to 19c and your Application Upgrade from 12.1.3 to 12.2.X. Our methodology checks the prerequisite for latest CPU patches on Database tier and Application tier. Enabling online patching helps achieve minimum downtime during the patching process.

We Analyse Server, Storage, network and database prerequisites patches, Application Tier prerequisites patches , Operating System prerequisites in the existing environment . We also analyse third party interface configuration like sftp, web services, shared nfs directories, scheduled crontab, scheduled concurrent program and database scheduled job compatible with target environment.

Chainsys Team will execute minimum two iterations: A Pilot iteration & UAT Iteration before production upgrade. In some cases we suggest preproduction iteration.

We analyse the downtime and take necessary action to reduce the downtime. Some of the actions include Purging logs, traces, gathering statistics, Install and configure necessary software before upgrade downtime, upgrade the database in different downtime , tuning database parameters, tuning middleware parameters, configure parallel processing during patching /upgrade and performance tuning of long running jobs / processes.

After Production migration , the required architecture like multi node setup, Parallel concurrent processing , Cluster configuration, etc. are done to achieve best performance.

Testing Automation

Chainsys’ SmartBOTS is a headless testing automation tool which comes with prebuilt test bots to execute your end to end business process testing. It reduces the manual effort during testing . This automates multiple test cycles and reduces the risk during go-live. Every step is documented with screenshots and a final system testing document TE-40 is provided out-of-the-box.and a dashboard on the test results . This helps process owners to own their IT requirements and focus on their business.

CEMLI Migration Service

Chainsys’ data Management Products help achieve 70% conversion to the desired version without programming. It identifies the changes in the Custom Tables, Custom Packages, Custom Procedures, Custom Functions, Custom Forms, Custom Reports (rdf& XML), Custom Workflows and Custom OAF Pages out-of-the-box.

Here is how we can help with CEMLI migrations:

  • Identify and fix the obsolete Standard objects in the Old instance
  • Identify and fix the New Standards Object in the Upgrade New instance
  • Identify and fix the Invalid Objects
  • Identify and fix the Custom objects registered in standard tops
  • Identify the Custom extension in Standard Objects
