RESEARCH

[TU Chemnitz]
Main building of TU Chemnitz
We benefit from fundamental knowledge in the field of compiler technology. We have been working in this field for more than 20 years. Many of our current employees researched and worked at the institute for "Programming languages and compilers" at Technical University Chemnitz/Karl-Marx-Stadt. Today, we also have a close cooperation with universities and academies (external lectures, supervised diplomas, common research projects), whereby new scientific know-how flows directly into the company's development work.
[Innovativ durch Forschung]
"Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V." honours our long-term research work with the seal of approval "Innovativ durch Forschung".

MAJOR RESEARCH AND FUNDED PROJECTS

Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand (ZIM):
Generic toolbox for the automatic database migration as part of a software migration

The target of this research project is the improvement of our proprietary technologies and tools for automatic database migration. The special focus is placed on improving the range of use of our tools for difficult platforms (BS2000, HP NonStop, IBM Mainframe), programming languages (COBOL, PL/I, TAL, SPL) and file systems (e.g. LEASY [BS2000], Enscribe [HP NonStop], IMS [IBM Mainframe]) without reconfiguring the tools expensively for each project. Here we are pursuing a generical approach.

[BMWi] The project results complete our Toolbox for software migration, a set of software tools supporting all the components of a migration (graphical user interfaces, file systems, programming languages, job control languages and middleware).

Laufzeit: 01 December 2015 - 30 November 2016
Förderer: Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy
[Q-MIG]

Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand (ZIM):
Q-MIG – Development of a quality-driven, generic tool chain for software migration

The target of this research is the further development of existing individual tools up to a migration factory in order to reach a drastic reduction in time and material effort for the adaptation of tools to individual customer projects. A further project target is the construction of a quality control panel to make the quality of software migrations measurable.

Individual project funding:
MaTriX – Tool-based migration of proprietary, antiquated screen mask systems into modern, WEB2.0-based user interfaces

This project comprises the development of a system based on HTML, JavaScript and Ajax (Web 2.0) for graphical user interfaces of client-server systems. One major target is the development of an alternative to proprietary systems.

[SOAMIG]

KMU-innovativ, collaborative research project:
SOAMIG – Migration of legacy software into service-oriented architectures

The subject of the research project SOAMIG is the software migration of legacy systems into service-oriented architectures. The target is the development of a common process model for software migration by transformation of legacy systems into service-oriented architectures and the support of the transformation with software tools.

TECHNICAL CONFERENCES

[20 years pro et con]

Technical conference "SOFTWARE-MIGRATION aktuell"

Within our 20th anniversary, we organised the technical conference "SOFTWARE-MIGRATION aktuell". Invited guests were from the fields of research and industry.

Interesting and exclusive lectures about software migration were presented. Another focus of the conference was on reports from users, which have already realised migration projects successfully. In an accompying exhibition we presented our field-proven software migration tools and technologies.

Technical conferences on software migration

In cooperation with the German Informatics Society and TU Chemnitz, we organized technical conferences on software migration. These conferences were a central forum for exchanging views and ideas on software migration.

The conference contributions contained scientific research results and experiences from real migration projects. They were of much interest to practitioners who plan migration projects. Furthermore, tools for supporting migration projects were presented.

The following links will inform you about the technical contents of the previous conferences:
