Intelligent, Custom and Highly Automated Cross Platform Database and Application Migration

COBOL to C#.NET, United States


Implementation of Application Migration project for US healthcare organization.

Customer

А healthcare organization dedicated to improve funding and clinical performance of hospitals and healthcare systems by introducing technology and health management services. Their innovative solutions are helping to improve the patient care experience and quality of healthcare services. The company is a partner of hundreds of hospitals and manages their patient interactions, which helps to control medical costs and support care management in the United States.

Challenge

Like many companies that handle complex orders, our client struggled to coordinate their internal management processes with a range of methods. In 2014 the Company faced the need to change its business application platform and referred to Ispirer professionals in order to close the task as soon as possible. The client’s requirement was to get the operational application in the new C#.NET environment in very strict timelines –1 month. While the whole COBOL application, which had to be migrated, included about 15 thousand lines of code.

Solution

Ispirer took care of the entire migration process of the client’s application from COBOL to C#.NET. Our migration specialists gathered the requirements to the target code and then performed the conversion on Ispirer side.

Ispirer technical team during this project has extended automatic conversion for the following statements:

  • NOT NUMERIC conversion;
  • Compare for multi-values (if(some_var != "73" && "74" && " ") );
  • Function INTEGER-OF-DATE conversion;
  • SEARCH ALL conversion;
  • PERFORM UNTIL statement conversion.

After the Toolkit extensions automatic migration of such statements is supported and can be implemented in any COBOL to C#.NET migration project.

Results & Advantages

The Ispirer team performed «turnkey» services for the client in the required timeframe – in less than 1 month. The result of this engagement was the delivery of a fully functional C#.NET application.
