"Fujitsu has built a solid platform on which we can build. It is the foundation of our modernization program and will help us evolve as an organization so we can continue to keep the roads of New Brunswick safe for everyone"
Robert Cyr, Program Director, New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Branch
New Brunswick is the largest of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces and was one of the first to join the Dominion of Canada in 1867. It today boasts a varied and increasingly multicultural population with a total population of 729,997.
The New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Branch was burdened with an out of date legacy mainframe system that was overly complex and costly to maintain. It wanted to migrate its business critical applications to a more flexible, modern platform to simplify support and lower costs.
Fujitsu used its PROGRESSION suite to automate the conversion of 1.5 million lines of code; 110 database tables; 40 million data records; and 867 business logic programs, migrating away both online and batch programs from the COBOL mainframe to a stable, reliable solution in a .NET environment.
