- The Casey Experience
Legacy System Modernization
Whether it is a custom-coded application with long-lost source code or a mainframe-based program with a proprietary interface, your company probably has an important legacy application running in its data center. This legacy application might perform an important or irreplaceable function. It might even be mission-critical but you need to consider how you introduce new technologies that are more efficient and effective.
We have extensive experience with legacy systems and can help you determine how many of your critical applications are running legacy code, determine what knowledge is at risk, and even provide your current IT staff with legacy system training.
Legacy modernization projects focus on the re-engineering and moving of applications from one technology platform to another. In many cases it requires re-engineering the architecture so that it is robust enough to handle the current as well as future business models. Some of the activities and methods used are:
- Iterative development processes for deliverables
- Scaffolding techniques to fuse new and old technologies and architectures
- Re-engineering of the business process
- Architecting applications using a Service Oriented Architecture to allow for future expansion and centralization of methods and services
- Infrastructure and system performance tuning
Legacy System Management
Your internal IT staff might not have the time or resources to update and maintain these legacy applications. Again, we can help. Not only can we provide the implementation of legacy modernization but we can also manage these legacy operations for you, allowing your IT organization to focus on other growth areas.
Legacy System Management is an option companies pursue in order to free up resources, which then allows them to focus on their core business rather than IT. We have extensive experience with legacy systems and we are dedicated to helping clients maintain these systems.
