IT system modernization - Conversion


To meet the expectations of your internal and external customers, your information systems must be functionally and technically able to integrate cutting-edge technologies.


Our offer ―also called system conversion or system migration― enables you to upgrade one or several technical components (operating system, language, DBMS, web-enabling application, downsizing). Free your company from an obsolete architecture and offer improved services to its users. We will help you build an IT architecture able to inter-operate with the latest technologies.

We carry out these projects with a commitment to results and with respect for performance, scheduling as well as your budget, which are fundamental requirements for the success of Information System Modernization projects.


Our Offer

Upgrade your information system and database with our highly automated software suite ―Move’s Recode-Workbench, which analyses, processes and assesses the system.

We implement a new technical architecture, which enables you to perform further developments.

We perform a smooth migration ―both for your data and your teams―to the new, entirely native architecture without any run time. It guarantees you the best performance and a complete independence from your service providers.

Our approach

Our approach to upgrade IT infrastructures is the following:

Study Pilot Automation Go-live Running
Mapping Prepare environment Batch conversion Integration Running
Study Conversion Tests Maintenance reports Maintenance
Modelling Simulation
Batch processing Switch => bascule

In which case should you upgrade your IT infrastructure?

  • Downsizing of expensive systems to operate
  • Migration to an open architecture
  • Web-enabling application
  • Data structure expansion
  • Mass processing
  • Deleting or replacing technical components

Our conversion technologies can also be used for the following:

  • Application de-interleaving
  • Automated regression testing
  • Automatic programming: data extractors, interfaces…
  • Documentation generation

Generally, thanks to its specific functions ―impact search, processing and assessment, Move Solutions’ software suite enhances the reliability of maintenance and developments, as it brings about significant improvements in quality and productivity.

Platform Migration

  • IBM MVS, VSE, AS400, Bull Gcos, Unisys, HP3000, …
  • We perform the migration of your platform to open architectures (Unix, Linux, Windows).

Change of language

  • We convert assembly languages, Natural, Cobol, Ideal, PL1, RPG, Pacbase, CSP, Telon… to open and upgradable environments (Java, .net…)

Change of DBMS

  • We convert and transfer the data from your DBMS
  • Adabas, Datacom, DL1, IDS2, DB2, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, Informix, SQLserver…

Architecture upgrade

  • Migration to open architectures (J2EE
  • Implementation of web services


  • Third Party Application Maintenance
  • Data structure expansion, new utility programs
  • Reengineering and code reliability

Enterprise architecture (=> urbanisation)

  • Mapping
  • Reverse documentation
  • Dividing into applications (de-interleaving)

We work in all kinds of IT environments:

Operating systems (OS): MVS, DOS VSE, VM, GCOS 7, GCOS 8, VMS, UNIX, AS400, WINDOWS, HP3000 to Unix, linux, AS400…

Database Management systems (DBMS): DB2, ORACLE, SYBASE, SQLserver, SQL, INFORMIX, DL1, IDMS, IDS2, ADABAS, DATACOM, IMAGE…

Languages: Cobol, CICS, Fortran, C, Assembly languages, CSP, Telon, Pacbase, natural, Ideal, NSDK, Powerbuilder… to Java, .net, RPG, Cobol

We converted MVS Cobol to Linux Java, Visual Basic to Java, NSDK to Java, PowerBuilder to Java and performed client/server migrations to Java
