Conversion Tools

Below is an outline of our conversion tools. For more information, please Contact us

ProSol Group have developed an environment which takes Universe source code
and produces managed .Net source and object code, and converts and populates
a choice of SQL Server, DB2 or Oracle databases.

This enables customers to leverage the considerable investment in the current systems and produce an up-to-date, fully scalable, highly functional, industry standard equivalent.
In addition to this, the ongoing cost and risk to the business are greatly reduced by being on the .Net / SQL technology as skilled resources more available, the base technology costs less in license fees and most importantly the current team is motivated and re-vitalised.

The Benefits All of the points below combine to both lower cost of system ownership and enhance the business value to organisations significantly:
  • Time to deployment - months vs. years
  • Improved scalability - vital for growth strategy
  • Enhanced performance - back-ups, months ends will be greatly improved
  • Improved stability - skills on current technology scare and expensive
  • Retained investment in IP - both system and staff
  • Revitalise and re-energise the team and the business - priceless

ProSol Group have created a toolset to convert SB+ and
System Builder applications to .Net source and object code.

This enables ISVs and Customers to leverage the considerable investment in the current systems and produce an up-to-date, fully scalable, highly functional, industry standard equivalent. NetBuilder allows you to separate your application layer form the database and un in the traditional character mode or through a browser based interface.
The converted application can run against a choice of databases including SQL sServer, Oracle, DB2 and U2 (UniVerse & UniData).
Software developers can choose to develop in the existing IDE and traspile to NetBuilder, use the NetStudio development environment or code natively in C#.Net using the standard Microsoft Visual Studio toolset.

The Benefits
  • Time to deployment - months vs. years (no system rewrite necessary, no off-the-shelf package that needs to be customised)
  • Retention of investment made in the software application to date
  • Improved scalability and performance through multi-tier architecture
  • Code clean up through exposure of unused code and defective code
  • Skills availability - skills on current technology scarce and expensive
  • Revitalise and re-energise the team and business - priceless

Evolved from the base construct of the proven NetBasic compiler, NetNatural is a fully functional compiler
used to convert Natural source code to produce managed .Net source and object code as well as converting
to, and populating, a choice of SQL Server, DB2 or Oracle databases from Adabas.

Once converted, organisations can choose to continue developing through the existing IDE and compiling the source code to .Net or code natively in .Net using the standard Microsoft Visual Studio toolset.

The conversion of Natural systems to .Net using NetNatural can take weeks however the testing of the resulting systems as well as the process to take the system into production will depend on the quality of the existing code and the commitment and depth of internal resources for both technical and functional testing of the converted system.

Prosol has deep experience with the system conversion process and will impart this knowledge for the duration of each conversion project.

The Benefits

The conversion from Natural legacy systems using NetNatural provides organisations with the following benefits:

Reduced Cost

STAFF
.Net/SQL skilled and experienced resources are significantly less expensive than the equivalent Natural resources

LICENCE FEES
There are no recurring license fees with NetNatural

TIME
The time taken to convert the systems is notably less than the system re-write, system replacement & customisation

Reduced Risk

STAFF
Natural resources are scarce and aging. With NetNeatural key resources can be retained and trained or replaced over a managed period of time.

TECHNOLOGY LOCK IN
NetNatural allows organisations to convert systems to .Net / SQL and continue to enhance the system using native Visual Studio tools with no dependence on the NetNatural technology

COMPLIANCE
NetNatural facilitates the move to a standards compliant technology with greater adherence to security, disaster recovery (business continuity) etc.

Additional Benefits
  • Retention of investment made in the software application to date
  • Improved scalability and performance through multi-tier architecture
  • De facto standards adherence around security and business continuity/disaster recovery
  • Code clean up through exposure of unused code and defective code
  • Enables shift to an Agile & DevOps practise and cloud-based application deployment
  • Allows the application of standard source controls tools
