As cloud, mobility and big data gather momentum, now is the time to consider systems modernization options. Properly managed, a system modernization effort can be a low-risk and cost-effective process to maximize return on current and future investments while maintaining your enterprise goals.
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.
