If you're running custom applications on legacy systems, modernizing your application environment can help you enhance competitive advantage while lowering operational costs. Whether your goal is simply to improve the workflow of a legacy application or to retool it into a set of reusable services, application modernization will position your business to address new requirements such as cloud computing, mobility and virtualization.
But there's one problem - modernization can be difficult without an end-to-end solution approach and experienced delivery partner.
At SPECTRAFORCE, we have developed a proprietary Migration Factory model that offers an Innovative application modernization approach driven by specialized teams working in an assembly line mode.
We can help your business:
- Better understand the applications, databases and processes that run in your data center today and map out a modernization strategy that is future-ready
- Reduce high infrastructure costs and streamline operations by identifying current industry standard re-hosting options
- Realize new initiatives and enhance agility by re-architecting legacy applications to modern architectures such as Java and .NET
- Upgrade your existing enterprise applications to the latest version or migrate them to more efficient platforms
