Modern Systems just wrapped up a large legacy systems assessment for a US government entity. The results of the assessment will act as the foundation for a broader set of legacy modernization projects.

The objective was to reveal and categorize uses, unused, duplicate, standalone, and missing components so the customer could get an estimate the cost and support services to complete a refactoring of these applications.
