The National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) Grants Management System (GMS), Financial Management System (FMIS), and Automated Panel Bank System (APBS) were unique one-of-a-kind 27-year old legacy systems written in Wang VS COBOL, running on a WANG VS Operating System, and using a WANG VS DMS database. TSRI was engaged to transform these systems into C++ and completed the project successfully in 7 months.
The Reliability & Maintainability Information System (REMIS) is a key component of the Air Force Depot Maintenance System. REMIS consisted of 1.1 million lines of source code written in COBOL85, TAL and C. The system runs on a Tandem Symmetric Multiprocessor with NonStop SQL/MP DDL and a Tandem database.
The Oregon's Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) serves approximately 300,000 employee members, inactive members and retirees from more than 850 public employers. OPERS required a major maintenance action of the OPERS Benefit Estimation Subsystem (BESS) and Benefit Calculation Subsystem (BCSS) to address changes in Oregon State retirement regulations. TSRI's automated refactoring capability was used to consolidate the applications and remove dead and redundant code.
The State of Washington’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) awarded a sole-source contract to TSRI for modernization of the State’s Apportionment System.
STG, Inc. awarded a contract to TSRI for the transformation, refactoring and documentation of the Department of Defense Activity Address Directory (DODAAD) system, along with re-hosting the system's database.
As part of the Logistics Management System, the Weapon System Management Information System (WSMIS) is responsible for tracking combat capability and impending parts problems. The system was well regarded during Desert Storm for its ability to expedite repair or procurement of critical items. However this legacy COBOL system required modernization to continue to fulfill its mission.
The Defense User Registration System (DURS) of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) consisted of a UNISYS 2200 COBOL application running within the DPS form-based presentation system (DPS 1100). DURS required conversion into a Java/J2SEE multi-tiered application to support DTIC modernization requirements.
The purpose of this effort was to assess the Core Automated Maintenance System (CAMS), a large high profile Air Force logistics system. This assessment was needed to provide comprehensive high-quality "As Is" functional analysis-level UML design documentation to support analysis of business processes and business rules in the system. The final deliverable was delivered on time, and consisted of over a million pages of HTML and Scalable Vector Graphic, with over a hundred million hyperlinks.
The U.S. Air Force's Weapons System Cost Retrieval System (WSCRS), designation H036C, was written in COBOL running on an Amdahl-5890 platform and using a flat file data base. The system required modernization by the Wright-Patterson Mission System Group (MSG) to improve base support for the Air Force weapon financial systems. TSRI transformed 100% of the WSCRS COBOL code into C++ and facilitated an error-free delivery to the customer several weeks ahead of schedule.
With maintenance costs increasing for the national crime information tracking system, a significant portion of the agency's crime fighting budget was required for hiring staff with experience maintaining mainframes, non-adherence to the Common Operating Environment (COE) adding to costs, and aging technology (IBM Mainframe, DB2, CICS, CA-GEN, COBOL, Assembler, C, MQ Serices , JCL) making enhancements difficult to perform, the nation crime fighting agency initiated a Legacy Migration study to assess migration from the current legacy application architecture to an open Java/JEE application architecture.
