The client, a government department dealing with the provision for winter fuels, was locked on a VME IDMSX platform. This made it increasingly difficult to continue to provide financial assistance for home-heating costs in winter for those in need. They wanted a solution with a mobile platform for greater flexibility, speed and access.

The Challenge

  • Retire the VME mainframe
  • Allow the government officers immediate access to the system
  • Enable remote access
  • Incorporate accessibility features for disabled users to operate independently

The Project

  • Migrate the application from Fujitsu VME IDMSX to the Linux platform

  • Port the data into a DataNovata application viewer and allow it to be regularly updated

    • Proprietary application source code
    • Linux
    • Postgres database
