Moving from legacy monoliths to next-gen
cloud native platforms
Businesses today are facing increased competitive pressures to get the most out of their existing IT assets and continuously optimize to meet the demands of the changing market, reduce technical debt and increase productivity. Archaic applications limit the ability to innovate and pose the following challenges:
This calls for application modernization of existing legacy architecture to next-generation cloud native platform architecture.
Enterprises continuously strive to provide their customers and stakeholders with personalized experiences, enter markets with new business models, release products in an accelerated manner, and scale their businesses infinitely. Our sustainable, continuous application modernization program focuses on applying tools, approaches and best practices to extract and transition legacy capabilities and workloads, delivering business benefits that come from cloud native architectures and modern platform ecosystems.
Deconstruct legacy applications in self-funded increments, with minimal IT overhead to manage change and reduce technical debt. This helps optimize spend on modernization while continuously delivering real business benefits.
Simultaneously modernize applications and optimize maintenance costs and efforts. This approach reduces total cost of ownership, offers near-immediate responses to business needs, and rationalizes and modernizes an enterprise’s application portfolio.
Leverage years of accumulated domain and technology experiences to automate many aspects of the modernization process.
Extract legacy business logic into modeling software, which goes into domain-driven design for microservices.
Recover knowledge that goes into automation frameworks to build end state ecosystems.
These methods offer businesses cloud-native microservices based capabilities, disposable architecture ecosystems that allow for continuous technology and capability innovation, and highly automated IT development and operations that help in optimizing build and run.
We help our clients modernize monolithic applications written on IBM Z® and IBM i operating systems, legacy distributed applications written on Visual Basic, Delphi, PowerBuilder, Oracle Forms, MS Access, 4GLs and older architecture (3 tier, SOA, MVC) to next-gen cloud native architectures (12 factor, Docker, serverless, Kubernetes, microservices, event-driven) running on Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM RedHat OpenShift, VMWare Tanzu Application Server. We utilize combinations of approaches in the journey to application modernization including rehost, replatform, replace, refactor, rearchitect, rebuild, retain and retire. Batch and online applications and data are migrated and modernized through methods such as emulation, containerization, APIfication, automated code conversion, business rules extraction, automated code generation, automated deployment, data externalization, etc.
By applying all the transformation levers, we invest in transformation and innovation and optimize run to generate savings. This helps in achieving:
Accelerated Transformation: Significantly faster delivery
• API first, cloud native, apps composition
• Rationalization, modernization, mainframe exit
• Continuous, contextual innovation by funding innovation engines
Run Optimization: Significant reduction in costs
• Operating model optimization
• CI/CD/DevSecOps pipeline automation
• Quality engineering
• Service Reliability Engineering (SRE)
• Technical debt management
