Application Modernization Brings High-Performance to Legacy Applications
Senior technology executives must constantly perform a balancing act: meet evolving business demands while extracting maximum value from existing IT systems. With 70% of an organization’s global transactions running on legacy applications, doing more with less is no easy feat.
“Discover-Monitor-Maintain” to modernize applications
CDS’s Application Migration & Modernization offering allows IT to expunge unnecessary operating costs, while reducing capital expenditures and liberating IT staff resources. CDS has a well-defined methodology for Application Modernization called Discover-Modernize-Maintain (DMM), and is based on our approach.
The CDS Advantage
Migrating, re-platforming, or remediating legacy applications
We’ll help you decide what’s best: migration, a new platform or remediation of legacy applications.
The results – more value from existing applications at minimal cost, limited disruptions and reduced risk – executed in three phases:
We identify and understand all business drivers and objectives through an in-depth study of your application landscape. We:
Evaluate the level of documentation.
Analyze the current state of your application portfolio.
Reverse engineer applications, if needed.
Develop a blueprint for your future application roadmap using our 5Rs methodology: Retain|Re-Engineer|Replace|Retire|Reuse
We outline a modernization or migration readiness plan for your applications and their related databases. Based on previous analyses, we blueprint applications’ and databases’ future design. We will also create a “sunset plan” to decommission the legacy system.
We make use of the robust and mature “Transition-to-Transformation” framework to support and maintain. This framework standardizes and stabilizes modern/migrated applications via training and continuous service improvements.
We instill agility and efficiencies into legacy systems with our industrialized assets, specialized skills, and global delivery capabilities:
We bring informed perspectives and experience to provide new, cost-efficient ways to host applications and adapt platforms.
We help IT leaders extract value out of existing systems over time while reducing costs and business disruptions.
We ease the challenges of moving beyond legacy platforms through proven planning, assessment and diagnostic tools, and straightforward migration processes.
We provide dependable outcomes through collaboration to generate results using definitive plans and firm program-management disciplines.
