Technology is transforming every day, bringing the business possibilities of tomorrow. Investments in more efficient technology reduce maintenance costs and enhance application performance. Is your Legacy System keeping up with client needs? Does your organization require business and digital transformation?
Each situation is unique, and at KRIS INCORP we always start projects from discovery analysis. We review the limitations of current technologies for flexibility, scalability, and usability issues. Migration services might be a solution when it is no longer worth to preserve the current system. In some cases, though, integration services could be a better choice (link).
There are two main parts of the Legacy Migration – Data Migration and Code Migration.
Data Migration process
Data Migration can have many forms, from moving data to another storage (Cloud), converting the format to transferring it to a new application.
After a successful data migration project enterprise will gain the following benefits:
- Keep track of the valuable data using file retention policies
- Maintain high-quality data, by aligning new rules with legacy rules
- Obtain a data mapping process verified by a business team
- Reduce cost by optimizing the storage and improving performance
Functionality/Code Migration process
During Code Migration a team of specialists is working on rewriting current legacy code in a modern programming language, updating software libraries, and protocols.
Code rescue issues are addressed based on the business functionality of the code units. Quality documentation and previously written automated tests make this process go faster.
