About us

modernising legacy application systems

Migrating legacy applications since 2000

TSG MigrationWare is a private owned IT company specialising in modernising legacy application systems by migrating these IT systems to cost-effective, contemporary technologies.

The company was established in 2000 and, through its Management Team alone, has in excess of 100 years of IT migrations experience, having executed many dozens of projects around the world. Our three directors are all actively involved in the business.


Typically, we assist companies that have IT systems that add significant value to the business, but need these applications to be protected from the threat of obsolete technology, high and rising licensing costs and skills shortages.

Our application migrations are all achieved through the use of automated tools that we develop, to convert legacy application source code, databases and data between languages, databases and platforms.

With these tools, together with our experience, our well-defined migration processes and our factory approach, TSG MigrationWare is able to significantly reduce the costs and risks associated with legacy modernisation projects.


TSG MigrationWare has a primary presence in the United Kingdom and South Africa with a presence in many other geographies as well.

Key Facts


TSG MigrationWare conversion services are sold as source conversion services only through to complete turnkey solutions.

TSG MigrationWare’s offerings deliver a considerable overall cost saving. These include:

  • Re-hosting projects where COBOL/CICS/JCL is retained on the target platform. The risk and cost of migration is low and investment in staff skills is retained for ongoing system development and maintenance.
  • Legacy Transformation projects where TSG MigrationWare performs cross language translation, database conversion and application re-platforming. 4 GL languages are typically converted to COBOL.

On Client enquiry or following a sales lead, TSG MigrationWare typically provides a Rough Order of Magnitude quote (ROM) initially based on a client questionnaire. The Client then identifies and submits the source code and data definitions for analysis. The source code analysis aims to firm up a price by identifying areas requiring customization, Client specific standards and classifying and quantifying the inventory. The Client is provided with a quote, the anticipated duration, a macro plan and information to justify the business case and the Client’s ROI.
