  • From a technical perspective, the migration project makes use of trusted and proven technology that we call our Reference Architecture. This defines all the critical elements required as part of an application migration and lays out for customer, partner and Micro Focus technical teams effectively a blue-print for undertaking the project.We also have this environment set up in various labs around the globe and are able to use it to demonstrate and prove aspects of the migration as part of our engagement with you.You can see here an array of technical elements which comprise a comprehensive migration of a mainframe application.
