Conversion Methodology

CCS employs a refined, deliberate project methodology to create a complete conversion solution to IBM Power Systems including conversion of COBOL and other application programs, job control language, screen maps, data definitions, databases, interfaces, special forms, and all other necessary application components necessary for a successful conversion. Our goal is to enable the client to rapidly migrate legacy application workloads to IBM Power System AIX, Linux, IBM i, IBM System/z, and other platforms without risk of organizational or technical disruption.
