Legacy Systems Conversion: Transform your Enterprise for the Future

In this modern technological age, many companies continue to use obsolete systems, and applications. Companies do not prioritize fixing age-old applications because although slow, the applications may still be working. Legacy systems are quite large in terms of lines of code and amount of complexity. Changing or replacing one module is not possible due to the massive and complex code. Any small update results in multiple conflicts across the system. Legacy systems updating requires a lot of time and effort and underlying infrastructure for the legacy applications become more expensive to maintain, as it gets old. Legacy system support and maintenance requires a specific set of skills and expertise because each legacy application runs on specific obsolete hardware.

Legacy conversion extends the value of the legacy applications by converting/migrating it to newer platforms. The legacy conversion process reduces operational costs, and adds additional capabilities by using newer technologies such as implementing web services. Whether your approach is to completely reengineer and replace your legacy system by building functionality from scratch, or to do a step-by-step software conversion Famsoft can assist you to make sure your product will keep serving your needs for years to come.

As a first step, Famsoft analyzes the technology stack of the legacy applications. If the legacy system depends completely on obsolete technology, we may need to completely rewrite it using newer technologies. If the frameworks are still relevant, it is better to do a step-by-step conversion so as not to disrupt the major business processes. This involves significantly lower risks for the company.
