The Reliability & Maintainability Information System (REMIS) is a key component of the Air Force Depot Maintenance System. REMIS consisted of 3.1 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. Northrop Grumman IT (NGIT) maintained REMIS at Wright-Patterson AFB for the Air Force Material System Group (MSG).
The US Navy, under the auspices of the Navy E-Business office, undertook a major pilot program to assess the feasibility and business value of using commercial automated transformation software to convert legacy code into modern, object oriented, NMCI compliant code. This project involved the creation of a new gateway into TSRI's toolset, as well as code transformation, documentation and refactoring to improve maintainability and performance.
TriGeo Network Security, Inc. awarded a sole-source contract to TSRI for documentation and Refactoring of TriGeo’s primary product offering. This "Roundtripping" process involves taking in a client's code, applying pattern based refactorings to change and improve the code without changing the functional equivalency of the application.
Navigant Consulting Services was given the task of modernizing The Corporate Maintenance & Stop Loss System of a major U.S. company. This legacy system was written in the PowerBuilder and Magna-X software languages. Navigant contracted with TSRI to perform the code transformation of both languages into Java, refactor the application to improve performance, and produce bridge documentation.
EDS awarded a sole-source contract to The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) for a Proof-of-Principle project to demonstrate an automated transformation, documentation, and refactoring capability for the PL/1 source language.
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.
