Lift & Shift Informix Database/System Administrator

Client Name: Minnesota Department of Labor and industry

Location: Minnesota St. Paul, MN

Max Pay rate:  C2C $65/hr

Description of Project

The Office of MNIT Services (MNIT), partnering with the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI), is seeking one (1) full-time staff augmentation resource to perform the role of an Informix database/system administrator on the DLI Lift & Shift project.

DLI has embarked on modernizing many of its legacy information technology applications and databases to make them more current, efficient, supportable, and secure. The Lift & Shift project is part of this effort and will be utilized to re-platform the main legacy system (Informix) that is utilized by many of DLI’s business units. The re-platforming is required due to End-Of-Support (EOS) on the server operating system, software, and hardware components as follows:



End-Of-Support (EOS) Date


Cisco UCS C240 M3 Server 


Operating System   

SunOS 5.10 – 64-bit  gcc Compiler 3.4.3 



Informix 11.50.fc3 


Back-End IDE 

Oracle Sun Studio 12.4 


Front-End IDE 

PowerBuilder 2017 r3 


This project is a functional migration from one platform to another (Unix to Linux) and will incorporate the recommendations from a previous engagement that assessed viable options and prepared detailed requirements to move to a supported platform. The project is to “lift” the architectural stack from one platform and “shift” it to another, with the least amount of impact.

The current relational database management system (RDBMS) that supports the legacy system is Informix, and Informix will remain as the RDBMS in the new platform. However, the Informix database software must be upgraded to a level (14.10 or higher) that is compatible with the new operating system (Linux) and the data and images must be migrated to the new platform. The State anticipates that the new platform will be RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) to be run via VM within a State datacenter.

The purpose of this solicitation is to engage a certified Informix database/system administrator with the skill set and knowledge base to prepare for and execute both the upgrade and the migration of Informix to the new platform.

The engagement may also be extended beyond the current project to include work on future Informix database version upgrades.

Work is anticipated to be performed off-site/remotely.
