Client : Legal & General Nederland

Project : EURO Currency Conversion


In December 1997, Legal & General requested RADIX for a two-week quick scan study for its Euro currency problem in its offices in Holland to evaluate the problem, develop possible solutions and estimate the scope of work required. There are two major activities for Euro conversion; database conversion and program modifications. In database conversion, a detailed review of all data files within the application will be done to determine the amount fields, the amount field relations within a file or between files, and the files defined as multi-member files. In program modifications, additional processes or changes will be incorporated in the programs to provide the users the facility to input and view data in both currencies.

Together with the technical group of L&G, the RADIX team formulated the general approach and presented the results of the study to L&G management. In early January 1998, a service agreement was signed between RADIX and the company for the conversion of programs in Manila.
