Success Stories

We have an excel­lent track record of regis­tering many success­fully comple­ted projects since our founding in 1994. In the following, we have compi­led for you some of our “success stories” which can be graded as representative.

SUCCESS­FUL BS2000 MIGRATION AT ITZBUND

The project was commis­sio­ned by the Infor­ma­ti­ons­tech­nik­zen­trum Bund (ITZBund) which is Germany’s major IT service provi­der of the Federal Government. The migration project invol­ved a hardware and opera­ting system modifi­ca­tion from BS2000 to SUSE Linux. The project inclu­ded conver­sion of the COBOL programs to Java and the complex mask and file migration; finally, the project transited into its produc­tive phase on 12 Septem­ber 2016.

SUCCESS­FUL INTER­FACE MODER­NI­SA­TION AT MAN TRUCK & BUS SE

Automa­tic migration of simple, text-based screen masks into modern, user-friendly GUI displays was the primary task of the project which was success­fully imple­men­ted in colla­bo­ra­tion with MAN Truck & Bus SE during the period from July to Decem­ber 2013. In this context, our MaTriX migration tool was used which essen­ti­ally carried out the moder­ni­sa­tion of the screen masks automa­ti­cally that were no longer up-to-date. This signi­fi­cantly reduced the project costs and duration compa­red to a manual change over.

SUCCESS­FUL BS2000 MIGRATION AT AMADEUS GERMANY GMBH

On 30 April 2008, the last BS2000 system was switched off at Amadeus Germany, which is Germany’s leading provi­der of IT soluti­ons for the travel indus­try. This was prece­ded by a migration project unique in its comple­xity. Among other things, thousands of SPL programs and SDF proce­du­res with several milli­ons of lines of code (LOC) were automa­ti­cally conver­ted to C++ or Perl on UNIX. The high-perfor­­mance file handling system on BS2000 was migra­ted to relatio­nal Oracle databa­ses through tool-suppor­­ted approach, where our tools and techno­lo­gies were deployed successfully.
