VERANG created the 100% Automated Toolset specifically to address the market need for migration and modernization of ADABAS/Natural applications to Windows, UNIX and Linux. Trevor Veary pioneered the concept of migrating “Natural” code to Java or C# .Net via automated tools, thus providing very high productivity for the code conversion and eliminating the possibility of human error and unnecessary creativity within the resulting output code.
The output from the VERANG conversion is 100% function for function, with no human intervention and no change to the user interface. Thus ongoing maintenance by existing staff is simplified and no user re-training is required.
The VERANG offering is a time tested and proven solution with a large number of clients in production on their new platforms. The many references that VERANG has will verify the outstanding success and the impressive ROI’s that have been achieved over the past 15+ years.
