We are re-directing the Company!
- Instead of providing tools and bespoke software for Migration, we are providing a full service at a fixed price, which is calculated for each individual case. There is no 'one size fits all' for Migration; we consider YOUR particular case and you get a bespoke solution at a very fair price which will be much less than if you do it yourself.
The tools development has reached its end point and our tools are now more powerful than they have ever been. BUT, the processes required to effect Migration to .NET and Relational Database are not simple, and that means that the tools incur a learning curve when people are new to them. PRIMA and our associates are not new to them and it therefore makes sense for us to simply run the tools on behalf of our clients, as an outsourced service.
You will be able to select the Migration functions you need from a "Shopping List", provide some quantification data, and our online calculator will give you a "ballpark" quote (which we agree to honour, within +- 5%). The Shopping List covers ALL functions for both Legacy COBOL and PowerCOBOL, including migrating from Indexed files to a modern Relational Database and migrating a COBOL GUI system, like PowerCOBOL, into the .NET or WebForms environment, with 100% salvage of all legacy COBOL and the Business rules encapsulated in it. You can try different selections and quantities in the calculator and get an immediate idea of what it will cost you to migrate, if you let us do it for you.
IF YOU USE POWERCOBOL YOU SHOULD CHECK HERE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT MODERNIZING IT!
Use our new online calculator to get a ballpark quote for the cost of Migrating your PowerCOBOL projects to Windows Forms which run in .Net, OR
into ASP.NET Web Forms that run on your web server. ALL of your existing COBOL Scriptlets are salvaged and refactored into full COBOL code-behinds that drive the new Forms.
You can also mix code in other languages with the COBOL, or replace the COBOL if you want to.

- This PRIMA Web Site is being refurbished and there will be ongoing changes to it. The web site is a COBOL friendly place for developers, analysts, and IT management. It has been secured using the https: protocol, there is NO advertising, NO permanent cookies, NO tracking of your browsing, NO attempt to acquire you or your address as a marketing resource, and you can remove yourself from our registration database any time you want to.
The PRIMA side of the site is aimed at raising awareness of our company and our products, while the COBOL21 side of the site is intended as a place for people who may be dealing with COBOL, to get tips and information and to meet and share thoughts. Check out the Lounge, which has a Blog and a Bar where you can chat.
- Remote Application Validation (RAV) has been integrated into all our package products. If you develop software for sale to others you should take a look at RAV as a product to protect and monitor the use of your software. It is deployed all over the world and has never failed.
