Application Modernization

The legacy application modernization & migration has been one of our unique strengths. By taking the time to learn the specifics of the customer's business, we have accumulated extensive experience across a number of industries, including healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, digital media and financial services. 

We renovate your monolithic, disconnected Delphi, ASP, C++/COM/MFC legacy applications for taking advantage of the latest in technology like .Net, Java EE, Flex/Silverlight while ensuring continuity and retaining years' worth of knowledge. Differentiate your software products with a compelling look and feel. Invest in the future of your business today.

Antiquated user experiences, subpar performance and rampant maintenance costs. Application portfolios designed to meet yesterday’s challenges make tomorrow’s goals harder to achieve.

After years of active use and extensive alterations, what was once state of the art eventually slides into technical obsolescence, hindering process evolution and obstructing critical change. However, discarding aged software assets that have absorbed an organization’s operational uniqueness would be as short-sighted a decision as leaving monolithic, compartmentalized and progressively deteriorating infrastructures as is.

We place a particular emphasis on broadening our application modernization service offerings and work with businesses on future-proofing their differentiation advantage, rooted deep in the corporate memory and woven into lines and lines of tangled legacy code. We take a staged approach to each modernization effort, which involves examining the current application portfolio, analyzing business requirements, assessing complexity, stability and suitability for reuse, as well as suggesting different renovation plans.

This approach enables us to select and implement smooth, minimum-risk transition strategies.

Optimization and reengineering

Reengineering slow, bloated and opaquely structured systems allows improving technical and functional quality and dramatically reducing maintenance costs, while extracting maximum value from essential software assets and extending their lifetime. The reengineering strategy can presuppose the following types of activities:

  • Reverse engineering undocumented or poorly documented systems
  • Improving system design by applying patterns and best practices
  • Enhancing the code base and its comprehensibility by eliminating redundancy, performance bottlenecks and unwanted complexity
  • Migrating data and core functionality to a modern platform and/or programming language
  • Introducing a newer user interface paradigm to improve usability

Integration and extension

By retrofitting a live solution with additional features, updating the look-and-feel or developing interfaces to insulated applications and components, we expose the necessary data and functionality and augment the usefulness of working solutions.

Sunsetting and phased replacement

This strategy is best suited for systems that have exhausted their potential. As part of holistic transformation efforts, we take care to retain knowledge and data while rearchitecting the legacy software from the bottom up or replacing it with a packaged solution.
