Seritrig is proud to partner with Semantic Designs, Inc of Austin, TX. Under the leadership of Dr. Ira Baxter, Semantic Designs is an industry-leading provider of software engineering tools and expertise.
Seritrig now brings Semantic Designs' 14 years of experience in world-class automatic software re-engineering to the Canadian software industry. With proven technology comes a broad portfolio of successful projects in the most challenging technical circumstances.
Early beginnings in the defence and aerospace industries focused on modernizing real-time flight control software for military aircraft, missile systems and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). More recent projects have concentrated on the problem of software obsolescence in industry, both in enterprise applications and in large software products.
Here are some notable examples of past and current software re-engineering projects in the Semantic Design technology portfolio:
Client: Large Bank – national coverage
Legacy Application: Integrated core software system covering deposits, loans, CRM. 25M lines of COBOL.
History: Prior attempt to introduce new features produced business interruption, externally visible. Diagnosis: Technical Atrophy - Insufficient technical understanding of very large code base, and inadequate test coverage.
Challenge: Plan a multi-phase migration, beginning with Phase I Discovery/Mapping and moving into Phase II Migration Planning and Phase III Modernization.
Current Status: Phase I in-progress, tools and services to support Discovery/Mapping and Phase II Planning.
Client 1: Northrop Grumman
Legacy Application: Flight Control software, B-2 Spirit strategic bomber
Challenge: Retiring engineering workforce, language qualifications difficult to attract/hire
Current Status: Migrated Jovial to C.
Client 2: Major Aerospace Defence Contractor
Legacy Application: Flight Control software, air superiority fighter
Current Status: Migrated Jovial to C
Client: Large Automaker – global market
Legacy Application: Engine Test, complete life-cycle from R & D Design Test, Factory Test and Remote Dealer Diagnostics. 5 M Lines of C.
History: In-service 20 years, reliable, global installed base
Challenge: New environmentally-friendly engine designs coming on-stream & new tests required. Worldwide dealer network, multi-phase migration: Phase I Mapping and Data Model Slicing, Phase II Migration
Current Status: Phase I in-progress, tools and services to map application & plan Phase II Migration
