CANSYS Does Conversions...
Are You Ready for Y2K?
We have recently completed successful Year 2000 Conversions for COMARCO, Inc and The Bacova Guild. Using the tools available in Application Auditor 2000 and our proven conversion methodology, we were able to quickly identify the changes required, and implement them within the clients required time frame and budget. The conversion for The Bacova Guild was further complicated by the fact that their in-house designers continued to modify the applications while CANSYS was updating a different version of the same applications for Year 2000 compliance. Since The Bacova Guild purchased Application Auditor 2000, we were able to identify all the changes performed by the in house staff and merge them with the Y2K version with ease.
If you need assistance in dealing with the Y2K problem, contact us.
Application Auditor 2000 Now Checks for Y2K Compliance!
Our Application Auditor 2000 product is now available. This tool provides a framework and methodology for project reporting, development, testing, and implementation in APPX environments. Projects can be requested by users, then estimates can be created and submitted as projects. Tasks for each project can be assigned to different designers and individually tracked and documented on Project Worksheets. Finally Task Worksheets are used for user sign off and the automatic Design File Transfer of the Domains, Files, Fields and Processes that were modified as part of the related Project and Task.
A feature just added allows you to use Application Auditor to check your applications for Year 2000 Compliance! Download the demo guide from the Application Auditor 2000 page for more details.
CANSYS Finishes in Top 5!
In an event sponsored by Droege Computing, a team consisting of Jean Neron from CANSYS West and Alain Pominville from Conseiller Informatique Sextant placed in the top 5 in the 1996 RAD Developers Competition. This is an annual competition that tests the capability of RAD development tools. Competitors are given the specifications for a 'real world' application at 8:00am, and have until 9:00pm the same day to finish the application.
This was our first time in the competition, and it was an eye opening experience. We had reviewed the previous years competitions, and thought, "This isn't so hard". The reality of having to actually create the application within the time limits was a different experience, however.
Nonetheless, we were pleased to finish as well as we did.
