Project: DB2 Migration from Legacy SystemsLouisiana Department of Corrections implemented the DB2 migration by creating the DB2 Data Store as their first IT enterprise modernization. The department planned to extract the data from their existing Mainframe Mapper and Notes legacy databases and move the data to DB2 database as the basis for the enterprise "database of record" after going through the compete cycle of profiling, cleansing and transforming the legacy data for web-OLTP using IBM Information Server Suite of products as well as query and reporting using IBM Cognos BI tool.The issue for the client was extracting the data from legacy hand written very old databases such as Mapper and Notes for different database objects/tables & applying rules on top of it to load data into DB2 Database. All this was targeted to be completed in limited budget and fixed timeline. In addition, the Information Server was deployed on Windows Operating system with limited resources sitting on a VMWare for which support model from vendors was not existing. As these were legacy databases parent/child relationship between tables was also not present. As a result this check needs had to be made in ETL code and records which did not meet the requirement had to be captured and emailed to Data Owners.nFolks Data Solutions took this as a challenge and used IBM Information Server suite of tools provided by client by coming up with different solutions such as using the correct ODBC drivers as extracting data from legacy database was not easy with limited drivers supporting it partially. nFolks used a combination of Parallel and Server jobs as it was creating lot of processes on windows server & parallel extract or huge extract would break the connection with legacy databases Scripts were written to monitor the hanged processes & clean them frequently as the no of resources are limited. The data was also Unicode and special characters had to be handled carefully so that data retains its original form and loaded into DB2 database.Following the implementation, the department made the process seamless. Programs & scripts written by nFolks Data Solutions made the process seamless and in time delivery of project within limited budget by addressing all issues which made the migration of legacy databases to DB2 database successful. Case 2: Wells Fargo Client: Major Financial Institution in the US
Project: Upgrade of ProfitMax NextGen SolutionProfitMax NextGen objective was to calculate Profit and Loss metrics for the wholesale line of businesses at various levels like Customer, Relationship, Officer, Accounting Unit (AU), and Organizational Unit (OU) by building a Profitability Data Warehouse. The ProfitMAX NextGen is a rewrite of current legacy application, which is a customer and product profitability tool used by the Wholesale Banking division of the client to view customer / product profitability. 3000 users were estimated to access the solutions and would enable them to view and measure profitability at an officer, AU and product level.The issue for the client was that the Data Warehouse modeling was done with very poor practices & no best practices had been in place by previous implementation partner, leading to large number of issues, resulting in inaccurate data with missing relationships between target tables. The issues resulted in an unstable code and the reporting results were affected.nFolks Data Solutions, along with another implementation partner, were requested to fix the issues caused by the previous poor implementation. With best Solution Developers and Architects being deployed with right strategy, we were able to fix the code issues as well as the design issues & developed a solution which resulted in generating reports at 20 levels down granular reports across the whole sale line of Business Services and products for the financial institution, thereby meeting the primary end-point requirements. With the implementation, client was able to save lot of money and got and effective solution, which resulted in generating reports granular reports for 20 different at 20 levels, thereby providing streamlined data for improved decision making.

Overall Architecture assessment was based on different factors such as volume assessment, server assessment, topology design, resource estimation, performance tuning before installing the DataStage 8.7 version and migrating the code from lower version to higher version.nFolks Data Solutions performed server assessment and upgraded the code from DataStage 7.0 version to DataStage 8.7 version by converting all the server jobs to parallel jobs whose plugins were depreciated.

Case 8: ANZ Bank Case 8: Major Financial Institution in Australia
Project: Implementation of IBM MDM v11.6Implementation of IBM MDM v11.6, DSC, RESTful, Bamboo, Maven & Oracle 12c, Kafka for major financial institution in AustraliaThe implementation consisted of two parts: The Global Registry (TGR) and Australian Operational Customer Master (AOCM).The Global Registry (TGR) was a combination of virtual MDM (Matching Hub - MH) and physical MDM (Operational Hub - OH). MH provides matching entity link based on outcome of algorithm defined with probabilistic matching, while OH persists with the member data for enriching additional data such as hierarchy and relationships. Data changes for every member are notified to downstream systems by triggering notification messages. nFolks designed and developed 'maintain party service', 'publish derived record', 'data model' and 'algorithm' to accommodate entity attributes. Configured Bamboo jobs for automating build, deploy and test processes.Australian Operational Customer Master (AOCM):AOCM is a master slave database to consolidate customer data from multiple data sources and to serve the required data to downstream applications or systems. Java Server Faces web framework-based Data stewardship application is customized to integrate the new attributes, and used for searching customers based on user-defined criteria. AOCM is capable of emitting event notifications for changes to 'party profile' and 'customer-to-account relationship' to downstream systems.On behalf of IBM, nFolks designed and developed standalone Java application - 'Missing Data Remediation' for remediating missing data in AOCM or in source systems, and also migrated source control repository to GIT and validated the generated EAR works. In addition, nFolks also upgraded AOCM from MDMv10.5 to MDMv11.5, and included Oracle migration from 11g to 12c. By ensuring that AOCM MDM migration did not affect functionalities, customer data and web services, nFolks ensured business continuity for the client with minimal disruptions.
