One can read the title of this blog post in 2 ways. It can be read as an application that is being moved from Mainframe to a newer technology. Or it can be read as a long-time mainframe programmer who is trying to move out to learn a latest technology.
Being a long-time mainframe programmer myself with over 13 years of experience, I have also thought for a good amount of time to step onto a different technology. I have had quite a few discussions with my colleagues, attended few trainings, did some self-learning (primarily ETL tools), but in vain, until my current project.
My application is migrated from Mainframe to Azure SQL Database successfully and I am also in the path of learning Azure. I am planning to share few posts on how the migration has happened and some of the learnings during this migration.
In the future posts, I will add more details on the migration (Moving out of Mainframe).
P.S. Currently I am working on both a mainframe application and the migrated application in Azure
