Legacy applications modernization and mainframe-to-cloud migration are becoming critical for organizations still using core systems developed for a different era. And while recent technology advancements provide enterprises and government institutions with multiple solutions, finding the right approach, the right tools, and reliable partners that can deliver on the promise can be challenging.
Astadia's FastTrack process is an innovation that eliminates risk from software transformation projects. FastTrack allows applications to undergo complex cross-platform migrations at the same time as normal perfective and adaptive maintenance progresses without business interruption.
We use our mainframe migration methodology together with the Astadia FastTrack Factory, a powerful software platform that accelerates the mainframe migration process.
The artefacts in development, test, and production stay intact while the migration is in progress.
The migrated application’s behavior is identical to that of the original one.
The migrated application will perform at least as well as the original one.
The maintenance of the migrated application will be comparable in effort to the original application.
A key characteristic of FastTrack is the concept of migration staging area. The snapshot-oriented approach ensures the actual artefacts in development, test, and production stay intact during the entire application migration process.
"Astadia has a unique approach that is very different from that of other firms in the same line of business. They were able to realize the fastest migration with fewest risks, thanks to their specialized conversion tools and their own methodology. By responding to the project's specific demands, Astadia was able to complete the migration of our IDMS environment in no time. ”
