Our legacy application modernization services migrate legacy software applications to modern architectures
using an automated toolset. Applications
developed in DB2/Cobol, Adabas/Natural, Ingres, Informix, Sybase, IMS, IDMS, MS
Access, MS Sequel, and others can be transformed into multi-tiered applications
based on the J2EE architecture. Our
automated toolset provides consistency, reduces risk, provides faster project
delivery times and lowers project costs.
Maintaining and updating legacy software applications is
becoming an ever increasing challenge to IT professionals for the following
- Lack of hardware and software support. When maintenance/support is available, costs
are very high.
- Skilled professionals to manage obsolete technologies are becoming increasingly
difficult to find.
- License fees are expensive.
- The application is difficult or impossible to modify.
the software is old, company specific business functionality is only provided
by the existing application, so it cannot be replaced with off-the-shelf
Our legacy modernization services, migrating old
applications to modern J2EE architectures, provide the following benefits:
- Reduced TCO as hardware and software license fees and maintenance costs are
- Functionality of migrated applications can be easily extended.
- Increased manageability, scalability, reliability, and performance.
- Migration is quicker and less expensive than rewriting the application.
- Business rules and user interfaces are preserved minimizing the need for user
- Applications and data can be migrated on a planned basis minimizing disruption and business
Our modernization practice utilizes automated tools and
procedures to convert legacy applications into n-tiered architectures with
separate layers for presentation, business logic, and database access. Utilizing open standards, migrated
applications are web-ready.
