Legacy Modernization Services

Legacy mainframe applications and systems are among the most valuable technology resources running mission critical operations. Unfortunately, they are no longer responsive to multi-device mobility and data driven demands for business intelligence, thus lacking a richer customer experience.  It is also increasingly expensive to maintain. In addition, as experienced programmers retire, the institutional knowledge needed to run these systems is quickly disappearing. As a result, moving your business applications to the Cloud has taken on a new sense of urgency.

There are many different combinations of programming languages, databases, networks and operating systems. A detailed plan is essential to a successful legacy modernization project, and it all starts with the planning stage.

The Legacy Modernization Process

Our experts will transform your IBM, Unisys, and other mainframe applications and platforms, by taking full advantage of public, private and hybrid cloud capabilities. The result is a modern, robust platform that’s more scalable, efficient and reliable. Our approach is tailored to your unique infrastructure, source code, business processes and support capabilities, and we’ll work with you to develop and implement the right mainframe migration strategy to increase agility, ensure compliance and significantly reduce costs.

Astadia experts have experience in the following areas:

  • Offloading mainframe application development and testing to a cloud development platform, or to the desktop
  • Integrating mainframe applications and data with applications on other platforms, whether on-premise or in the cloud
  • Taking inventory, assessing and migrating your mainframe application portfolio to a cloud platform or distributed environment (on-premise or hosted)
  • Assessing the business value of legacy applications
  • Replacing, rewriting, migrating and/or modernizing applications across disparate platforms and languages
  • Re-envisioning applications to develop digitally transformed business processes

  • Develop a project plan, including all security-related issues
  • Deliver a preliminary package to help you prepare for the project

Case Studies

Enabling People Through Technology

Technology is meant to empower people and simplify their workload. Yet too many solutions are siloed, burdensome, inefficient and require too much effort to get to answers and business intelligence. We’re changing that by making technology work more effectively and effortlessly. Pushing data to the right place, at the right time, before the question has to be asked. Bringing meaning and insight to data so the right decisions can be made the first time. And keeping systems up to date, reliable and secure. You see, when people don’t have to worry about their tools, they can focus on their talents. And isn’t that the point?

Astadia’s Experts

If your business applications exist in a mainframe environment, you may be dealing with higher costs of maintenance, a diminishing workforce of mainframe specialists, and a shrinking pool of vendors from which to choose. Additionally, your business agility and competitive edge may need the boost that only mainstream technology can support today. 

Astadia’s Experts

By making the leap from mainframe to mainstream, you'll lower your overall technology costs, increase your agility and enable your competitive edge. Together with our partner Micro Focus, we'll help you confidently map and move your business applications to where they need to be today, and where they can provide the boost your business needs.
