PROJECT: Management of Physical Tickets

CATEGORY: Modernization, Askida Software

CLIENT: Loto-Quebec


Written in PL/1, Loto-Quebec’s application, ALEX, was to be converted into the language used by most of the organization’s other applications, Java. For Loto-Quebec, it was very important that the functionalities of the old environment remain exactly the same in the new one. Therefore, we had to provide functional continuity while ensuring adequate performance and stability of the application.


More than 18 professionals in IT located in Montréal, Québec, Romania and New York worked on this project over a period of 2.5 years.


The project was pay-as-you-go and Askida was the leader. It was developed in our offices with the help of Loto-Quebec’s IT team.
