Corero Migrates Leading Education Management Software Product from Magic (uniPaaS) to .NET with Firefly Migration

November 12, 2013

This ambitious application modernisation will support Corero’s continued growth and strengthen its unique product offering.

PETACH TIKVA, Israel, November 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Firefly Migration, provider of automated conversions of Magic/uniPaaS-based
applications to Microsoft .NET, announced the completion of a successful migration for
Corero Business Systems, now a Civica Group company.

Corero’s Education Management System (REMS) is in daily use at over 40 education
establishments in the United Kingdom, covering key operations such as enrolment, course
planning, timetabling and exam processing. Using Firefly Migration’s 100% automated
solution, Corero was able to release an enhanced, .NET-based version of REMS, to all of
its customers, within an astonishing eight month period.

After many years of development using the Magic platform, Corero looked for a modern
platform to enhance system functionality, expand development capabilities and bring all of
its products under a single development platform. Firefly Migration provided the best
proof of concept for a platform upgrade, presenting a fully functional .NET-based version
of REMS.

Corero’s seamless migration to .NET required no development freeze, allowing Corero to
provide continuous support to its customers while its team of Magic developers underwent
Firefly Migration’s specialized .NET training. “Corero’s team of five long term Magic
programmers has become an extremely productive group of C# developers who are very happy
with the new platform,” said Mike Stansfield, Product Development Director at Corero. “Our
migrated, .NET-based application has gained better functionality and works faster.
Microsoft’s development tools allow us to develop better and provide higher quality
products for our customers,” he added.

“Firefly Migration’s solution was the perfect choice for Corero’s move to the .NET
platform. The migration process was quick and painless with the constant support of the
Firefly Migration team,” said Corero’s Managing Director, Bernard Snowe.
