SOFTWARE MIGRATIONSoftware migration is the transformation of antiquated software systems into modern hardware and operating systems using migration tools.
Software migration generally concerns all components of a legacy system (programs, screen masks, files, jobs, middleware, databases).
Software migration has lower project costs in comparison to a redevelopment. According to our experience the relation of software migration and redevelopment is 1:8. That means if you calculate 15 man-years (a quite usual size) for a migration project using transformation tools, the new development of the same program system will take 120 man-years.
The graphic shows the migration paths we support and the used software tools.
Professional software migration allows you to do the following:
- Save your individuality, know-how and unique selling points
- Use future-proof platforms and development environments
- Connect to the modern world of information and communication
- Preserve your independence from proprietary manufacturers and licensed products
- Save time and money

TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIESSoftware migration is only manageable with advanced migration tools and technologies.
Our unique selling point is our consequent use of scientific compiler-building methods in the development of technologies and tools, which allows for a high degree of automation to be reached. This in turn reduces the project duration, the project costs and the error rate in comparison with manual migrations. Our tools and technologies support all components of a migration project (programs, middleware, files/databases, screen masks, job control languages).
Each migration project is individual. The pecBOX (pro et con – Toolbox for Software Migration) that we developed allows for fast, flexible and cost-effective adaptation of migration tools to individual customers' requirements.
PATH OF A MIGRATION PROJECTEach migration project follows a defined path. The study and the pilot project are some of the most important phases. The study represents the launch of a migration project and provides, among other things, the following results:
- The definition of migration paths from the base to the target system
- The use of tools within the migration project
- The estimation of project duration and costs
