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.
