  • Functional details

    Analyze candidates for porting/migration and identify/separate system-dependent code/data which cannot be handled by packaged porting solutions.

Transform non-compatible data structures/files into a suitable replacement on the above IBM® systems.

  • Business problem

    Allows legacy applications designed for the discontinued HP-3000 platform to run successfully on currently supported IBM platforms

  • Business opportunity

    Program developement experience with HP3000 systems began in 1974.  Extensive knowledge of MPE Internals and system programming gained over 4 decades is available to facilitate porting of various utilities/tools to targeted IBM® platforms. Three onsite '3000 development/test systems plus access to IBM Partner Systems (iSeries™, pSeries®, xSeries®) enables design, test, and verification of results.
