2002 - NEA Applauds TSRI

 

"The National Endowment for the Arts' Applauds A Smooth Upgrade"

Kirkland, WA. (June 18, 2002) – In an article published on May 6, 2002 in Government Computer News (http://gcn.com/21_10/news/18601-1.html), The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) applauded the system modernization efforts of The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI).

Mike Burke, NEA's Chief Information Officer (CIO) praised TSRI for modernizing NEA's 650,000 line-of-code legacy Wang COBOL system, that included transforming 350 database tables from flat files to a relational database and creating more than 800 user screens for 140 users, in just seven months. As Burke said, 'It worked out of the box. We had to do very little tweaking'.

Greg Tadlock, TSRI's Vice President of Sales & Marketing said, 'Recognition of TSRI's efforts by Mr. Burke and Government Computer News is not only gratifying, but has provided a wide audience of legacy systems owners with the understanding that a highly automated, low-cost and low-risk approach to system modernization is both available and proven. Legacy system owners today expect the modernization process to take years to accomplish and cost enormous amounts of money. TSRI however, can now accomplish that same modernization process in a fraction of time needed using other methods and at a Firm Fixed Price.'

2002 - USAF Software Technology Conference

 

"The Software Revolution, Inc. To Participate In The U.S. Air Force's Software Technology Conference"

Kirkland, WA. (March 7, 2002) – The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) will be a major participant at the upcoming Air Force-sponsored Software Technology Conference (STC) in Salt Lake City, Utah scheduled for 29 April to 2 May 2002. Located in Booth 927 of the Exhibition Hall, the senior staff of TSRI will be available throughout the week to answer questions and provide in-depth demonstrations of the eVolution 2000 TM toolset.

For those attending this important conference, it will be an excellent opportunity for a first-hand view of TSRI's automated legacy system modernization technology that is sweeping the logistics and maintenance, and operational communities within the Air Force. TSRI will be providing real-time transformation demonstrations of the Jovial, Fortran, Cobol, Assembler, Ada, and CMS2 languages into C++. It will also be an opportunity to learn about the range of contract vehicles now available to TSRI for quickly and efficiently providing support to the Air Force

eVolution 2000™ toolset

The foundation of TSRI's capabilities is the eVolution 2000™ tool-set. Through the application of state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technologies, TSRI has developed a highly automated capability (99%+) to assess, transform, re-factor, and if desired web-enable, a wide variety of application source languages, along with their associated databases. TSRI can transform Cobol, Jovial, C, Fortran, Assembler, Ada, and CMS2 into modern, platform-independent C++, JAVA, or XML (eXtended Markup Language) with CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) compatibility.

Using eVolution 2000™, TSRI can carry out sophisticated legacy software modernization in a fraction of the time and budget associated with alternative approaches. More importantly, TSRI reduces the technical and schedule risk associated with legacy system modernization by generating modernized applications and data that are fully documented and guaranteed accurate functional equivalents of the original legacy system.
