Legacy Modernization

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 Legacy Modernization strategy to increase agility, ensure compliance and significantly reduce costs.

  • 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)
