Legacy System Modernization
Legacy modernization describes the software engineering practice of updating and enhancing computer systems, which are technologically obsolete but still kept operational.
A considerable number of enterprise solutions run on legacy mainframe systems, which are out of date. Although they are a business-critical IT asset, legacy applications are incompatible with current systems and hard to maintain. Continually mounting licensing fees, shrinking support for frameworks and a lack of trained staff are all factors that force companies to migrate from expensive mainframe environments to newer, much more cost-effective and flexible platforms and systems.
How We Deal With It
Intetics transforms classic programming into a modern industry-standard one by leveraging the latest automated migration tools, coupled with our rich domain expertise, to help you become more agile. We take your key business data and seamlessly migrate it to environments such as .Net, J2EE, Linux, UNIX and WinTel. Non-relational databases are transferred to Oracle, DB2 or SQL Server. We can also enhance the business functionality of your applications by moving them to an SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) environment. The result for you is modernized software that is cheaper, faster, more stable, flexible, compatible with other systems, and scalable enough to accommodate future enhancements.
For large legacy systems, we organize the transformation to a modern environment in phases by migrating legacy modules one by one. Each module is converted in such a way that the updated, modern version of the module can be deployed to the production environment, but continue to work with the remaining parts of your legacy system until the rest is transferred. This approach assures a smooth and orderly migration of your system in stages, rather than spending significant time rewriting the entire system and replacing the old one in one action alone. Intetics’ seamless migration process minimizes the risks of severe errors, extended launch downtime or malfunction periods that are common in “one action” migration schemes.
