| Our client wanted to upgrade their core Policy Management System (PMS) which contained 1000+ modules to Enterprise COBOL within a ninety day period. The client selected this period as it was their slowest time of the year which allowed them to halt all system changes until the conversion was complete. During this timeframe only production fixes were installed.
||As with any conversion, the key is solid planning and attention to detail. First we identified every module that needed to be converted and determined what COBOL changes needed to be made. These were documented and the changes made. The next step was to compile the entire system and parallel test every module. Every report and output file was compared for differences and any defects identified were resolved. The project went so well that we were able to implement two weeks early which allowed the client to get back to business as usual.
