Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This document provides an alphabetic listing with hyperlinks for the documents that are provided for the SIMOSAM1 Libraries. The SIMOSAM1 Libraries (or Directory Structures) are the foundation for the Mainframe System Model. This architecture makes it possible to migrate (or move) a batch or online application that is currently running on an IBM Mainframe System with ZOS to a Linux, UNIX or Windows System with Micro Focus Server.

Migrating the application assets and building the load members for the new environment is only part of the effort required. Migrating and/or sharing the data is a critical part of the overall migration effort. Many of the programs in the following list will focus on the data file transfer, share, convert and compare aspects of a data migration effort.


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
