Melbourne , Fla. Innovative Routines International Inc. (IRI), The CoSort Company, has joined the Mainframe Migration Alliance (MMA), a group of companies working to help enterprises migrate mainframe processing to the Microsoft Platform.



Melbourne, Fla.-based IRI provides a number of software products that delivers mainframe functionality and performance on the Microsoft platform including, high-volume data sorting and conversion, test data generation, field-level security, database extraction, and batch reporting.



"We're extremely pleased to welcome IRI to the MMA,” says Spyros Sakellariadis PhD, director, Mainframe and Midrange Alliance Programs at Microsoft Corporation. “IRI’s proven legacy migration technology adds value and agility for customers in their move to a more cost effective Microsoft platform."



“When migrating z/OS and z/VSE processes, it is critical to implement a seamless replacement for JCL steps and parameters for sorting, selection, and summing. Additionally, runtimes must be at least equivalent and output results must be identical to the legacy platform,” observes Ray Corriveau, Alliance Manager for IRI. “IRI's CoSort software includes drop-in sort replacement engines and JCL sort card conversion tools that replace third-party sort functions and translate legacy sort parameters to CoSort programs on Windows.”
