Challenges Faced

AdPICS, deployed in 1994 on a COBOL-based mainframe, posed significant challenges due to its complex customizations over decades to cater to diverse business sectors like Transit, Highways, Aviation, Ports, and Motor Vehicles. The task was to modernize this intricate, highly customized system to meet current demands.

Our Approach

Sasaran Technologies adopted a comprehensive strategy, underpinned by integrated work streams. This included specialized functional subject matter expertise, automated code conversion (COBOL to C#), meticulous data migration (DB2 Mainframe to DB2 Windows), human-centered design for improved user experience, front-end UI/UX development, seamless API integrations, intelligent automation, and the integration of feature-rich capabilities.


  1. Enhanced User Experience: Through human-centered design, EPICS provides a modern and intuitive interface, improving user engagement and productivity
  2. Streamlined Performance: Transitioning from mainframe to open standards-based architecture led to improved system performance and responsiveness.
  3. Efficient Operations: Intelligent automation and feature-rich capabilities reduced manual effort and optimized procurement workflows.
  4. Financial Impact: EPICS enabled clients to efficiently procure goods, services, and construction projects worth over $2 billion annually, contributing to cost savings and revenue growth.
The collaborative effort between Sasaran Technologies and the organization resulted in the successful transformation of AdPICS into EPICS. By leveraging advanced technologies and methodologies, the legacy modernization services led to enhanced user experience, streamlined operations, improved financial outcomes, and readiness for future scalability.
