SUMMARY
As an alternative to the reengineering and conversion solutions available, replatforming dramatically reduces the time frame for the replacement cycle while retaining the legacy application codebase. Replatforming offers full preservation of legacy assets and business rules, liberation of legacy data, & migration to modern infrastructure. Our solution delivers:

  • Elimination of mainframe hardware costs
  • Modernization of data tier, moving to SQL Server, DB2 or Oracle Database
  • No disruption to legacy applications, users or support structure
  • Positive ROI usually seen 12-18 months after engagement
KNOWLEDGE CENTER


Numerous factors are driving companies away from legacy platforms, but change can be risky. Replatforming is a good way to move to distributed platforms, eliminate licensing charges, and retain legacy source code, allowing existing developers to continue to work with programs they are familiar with in the syntax they know.


Companies with COBOL or Natural applications use this service to:


  • Reduce costs associated with mainframe MIPS or Software AG licenses
  • Maintain existing development and support models for COBOL or Natural applications
  • Modernize data tier to meet business requirements for reporting, business intelligence or analytics
  • Improve developer tools for COBOL or Natural app dev teams

COBOL conversion, cobol to java, idms to oracle



Case Study: COBOL Replatforming

Modern Systems assisted in replatforming the Employment Development Department (EDD) of California to a DB2 CICS COBOL environment that met the State of California’s requirements. The entire project was completed on time and under budget, enabling the State to receive over $1 billion in stimulus funds from the Federal government.



Case Study: ADABAS/Natural Replatforming

Modern Systems assisted the US Department of Energy Savannah River, eliminating ADABAS and Mainframe processing within 5 months.
