“Salient CRGT is proud to lead the modernization effort at HUD by retiring their Unisys Mainframe & enabling critical business systems to operate in HUD’s cloud environment,” said Atacan Donmez, Senior Vice President, Civilian Services Group.

HUD’s Unisys mainframe platform and legacy COBOL applications were expensive to maintain and updates were challenging. They urgently required a solution that would disrupt the continued reliance and burden of these legacy systems. HUD is now successfully transforming the Unisys applications to the cloud using automated code conversion, automated database migration, and automated regression and performance testing. HUD reduced the project timeframe from five years to two, eliminated years-long requirements and code freezes required by manual modernization, and reduced overall project cost by over 50%.
