Legacy Code Recovery Old Code Update Language conversion
Platform Migration Software Salvage Open Architecture
Most companies have important software that has been designed to run on platforms that are now obsolete, or the designer has left, or nobody still uses the language, or you are too busy to do it yourself, or the input needs to change from RS232 to USB, or .... Very often it is important to try to keep the 'look and feel', rather than retraining staff - or just because it is useful code that suits you well.
Omicron converts, translates and restructures as appropriate, making your old software maintainable again. Readability is a priority, and code will be reviewed and tested as agreed prior to delivery.

- Where custom hardware is used, it must be provided for testing.
- Where new code is targeted for older processors, emulators may be needed.
- Again for new code targeted for older processors, original compilers may be required.
- If a computer language is not listed above, please ask ... often others are varients of these, and we can handle them.
