Webinar: What can the rest of government learn from DWP’s mammoth mainframe migration?

It was a mammoth task but the team at the Department for Work and Pensions did it against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and working remotely. Over a phased time period, DWP staff migrated eleven 40-year-old mainframe systems to a new purpose-built platform without losing a single day of operational processing. The application used to pay out more than £150 billion a year to millions of UK citizens kept running.

What went into the creation of DWP’s new Virtual Machine Environment Replacement platform is the know-how of a few. PublicTechnology has teamed up with Oracle and its installation partner Advanced for a webinar to review the journey from project design to execution and completion.

Watch this session to find out why DWP’s decision was not to rewrite the code entirely, learn about the operational benefits achieved with the migration as it stands today, and the options available to future-proof the migration of your legacy applications.
