Code Conversion


Automatic conversion of legacy code such as COBOL, PL/I, or even Assembler is, in many cases, an integral part of the modernization process. MOST's automatic code conversion capability, including the adaptation to the cloud technology, enables companies to retain their functional assets while migrating to newer technology without rewriting the whole application.    


MOST has carried out code conversion projects worldwide. These projects have been completed within budget and the scheduled time frame together with a high level of customer satisfaction.

MOST projects are successful due to 3 key contributors:

What We Do

MOST uses automated tools to convert the code of legacy applications.

The tools automatically convert programming languages such as COBOL, Natural, PL/1, Fortran, Pathfinder (Ingenium), Easytrieve, Assembler (semi-automated), RPG and JCL to Java, C#, C, Angular and script languages relevant to the platform of choice on the cloud or on premise.

While converting MOST can generate micro services in the target language that can be the basis for future enhancements in the cloud. 

Accompanying the tools is a library of predefined "base elements" used to speed up the conversion process.

The converted application can be maintained and enhanced independently by the customer. 

Apart from the core conversion, we handle the required changes to environmental components such as internal and external interfaces, security changes; printing; schedulers.
