Migration Project Manager

**Migration Project Manager – £400 – £450 per day – Hertfordshire**

The Migration Project Manager will document, oversee and control all aspects of the planned & staged migration & relocation of 2 x IBM Z13 Mainframes along with the associated technology infrastructure, DS8886 & TS7720 VTS, Brocade switching and add-ons/options that have been installed; these are currently noted as the ‘top-hat’ components that are located on top of the cabinet frames.

Migration project management will document, control and oversee all aspects of the IBM Z13 Mainframe migration, although many responsibilities will sit across a matrix managed ‘areas of ownership’ to provide a one stop view of the project plan, its status, critical dates & timelines, actions, RAID logs, communication & stakeholder management, minutes and actions. For further clarity, the client will be responsible for the Sysplex application, the network (both DC LAN, DWDM wide area network, connectivity, layer 2/layer 3 IP transport) and the commissioning of the new datacentre in Croydon, Surrey; IBM will be responsible for the managed services aspects that are delivered to the client, whilst these are not within the Migration Project Managers control, the project planning & Gantt charts can document where these task, actions and pre-requisites are owned & delivered.

The Z13 Mainframe may well require certain feature set verification(s) in terms of code, code release validity, code update – release & patch levels, firmware, virtualisation layers, operating system (verification, configurations & other pre-requisites), mirroring (metro & global) performance (baselining, minimum & expected) measurements, health check and a full reviewing testing programme, with areas that should be considered in;

  • System Acceptance Testing
  • Functionality Acceptance Testing
  • Operational Acceptance Testing
  • Proof of Concept Testing
  • Disaster Recovery Testing
  • User Acceptance Testing
