Legacy applications present a unique set of challenges to organizations. Often these business critical applications were developed using dated technology, have limited design documentation and access to the original design team is at best limited but usually non-existent.
It is also often assumed that because the application is already operational that the effort required to modernize is less than developing a greenfield solution and an expectation that an automated migration using off the shelf translation tools will further reduce costs.
In our experience of migrating large complex systems neither of these assumptions are valid because requirements and design documentation is usually scarce and not maintained in line with the deployed system and automated migration can result in providing as modernized system that presents challenges for the future in terms of maintainability and suitability for future enhancements.
Our solution is to use services and technology to accelerate understanding of the legacy application and the process of modernization that results in the delivery of sustainable solutions. An integral part of our approach and our ethos is to use model based engineering (MBE) to provide long term benefits to our customers by providing well documented maintainable solutions. Our goal is to understand what each customer’s specific issues are, the technology they currently employ and their desired target architecture and design a solution that provides the maximum level of automation possible. We do not sell off-the-shelf tools, but have developed a number of technologies that we customize and deploy to meet a client’s specific needs.
To ensure success we work closely with our clients to mitigate technical and commercial risk, and provide support to your migration team in the adoption of our solutions. To assist you in understanding the scope and complexity of your modernization project we initially undertake a Proof of Solution project. The PoS is typically a concentrated study on a sub-set of the legacy application and using our technology we construct a demonstrator of the tools we believe will provide value to the modernization project. This allows you to validate the proposed automation with the actual application and to evaluate its value.
