Caravel Technology overviewTop

  • The BASE100 team started the reengineering activity at the beginning of the 21st century. Since then, millions of legacy code lines have been modernized, focusing the activity in midrange and mainframe systems. The BASE100 team has acquired a huge experience, after hundreds of successful projects along the world. All the Caravel proposals benefit from this experience.
  • During this period, methodology, technology and tools have been developed, tested and undergone continuous evolution, conforming the Caravel modernization suite. A clearly structured, highly efficient set, which covers from the first assessment phases to the final Refactoring or Reengineering.
  • A complete set of tools clean, analyze, recover and document structure, logic and functionality. Flow charts and accurate pseudocode supports a complete understanding of functionality.
  • Additionally, the Caravel suite includes the has the potential of Automatic Conversion from RPG or COBOL Legacy Systems to Java. This feature can be used as a final objective or as an intermediate valuable step in the Reengineering process.
  • Caravel methodology takes account of the inherent risks of any reengineering project, offering the appropriate answer at every stage of the process. Caravel relies in the use of advanced tools, to minimize the manual effort, automatizing all the critical processes.
  • Both factors reduce the time and costs, minimizing the risks. As a result, Caravel offers a safe and reliable Refactoring and Reengineering approach.
