Automated migration using Ispirer software

Tool License with Extension Stages

If you are interested in automated migration using our tool Ispirer MnMTK, for large-scale projects we can offer a tool License with Extension Stages. Due to the fact that such specific migration directions as PL/I to Java are not fully developed in our tool yet, there will be a need in extending the tool.

During the Extension process Ispirer technical team will implement into the tool new conversion rules. Like that, within 2-3 months you will have the Ispirer migration tool entirely customized and updated according to the requirements of your particular project. Using the extended tool you will be able to convert a large amount of your code and, therefore, significantly reduce overall effort and time for the migration.

Once the Extension Stages are completed, all you will need is to purchase the license and get your application automatically migrated with the help of ready-to-use tool.


Before you make a decision to purchase our migration services or tool license, we can convert a part of your source code during a Proof-of-Concept stage in order to ensure that your PL/I application can be smoothly migrated to Java. It will allow you to see if the results fit with your requirements.
