CORE Webcast offers PowerHouse, Transact options

One week from today, CORE Migration is hosting a 30-minute Webcast on legacy migration from the HP 3000 to Windows. The company is offering a speedy migration plan: It will demonstrate how CORE migrates a PowerHouse application during the span of the Webcast. The Microsoft .NET platform is CORE's target.

CORE also has its sights set on the HP 3000 sites using Transact. This Hewlett-Packard language continues to run in some surprising places, although most of the surprise is that Transact is installed at all. The language introduced in the 1980s is a great example of a software solution that HP abandoned years ago, while its customers did not.

Whether the 3000 site is moving PowerHouse or Transact apps, CORE says that "lift and shift" is too low a goal to set for a migration. "The migrated solution must fulfill user expectations, address real needs and do more than just replace the existing solution," said the invitation to the Webcast set for 11 AM EST on Nov. 19. You can sign up for the WebEx presentation at the CORE site.

CORE will show off its president (Rolf Christensen), business development VP (Garry Whitworth), manager of delivery services (Stewart Melvin) and R&D manager (Chris Vanmaele) during the 30 minutes. The target audience is broad, from C-level executives down to business managers and project managers. CORE will take questions after the half-hour from attendees.

Migration success is hard to come by, according to CORE. Success is defined at the company as "Solutions that meet the stated needs of the clients and are adopted and embraced by their user base."
