  1. Considering application modernization? Get the facts first With many companies pushing application modernization today, it can be a little difficult to see through the sales pitches and actually find the facts. Despite the wave of application modernization, a significant number of companies are still running applications made decades ago that are capable of keeping up with toda?’s appli?atio?s, like IBM, so it see?s ?ot e?er?o?e should ?e ?oardi?g this train. However, it’s i?porta?t to re?e??er that application modernization is rapidly making its rounds through current companies for a reason. After doing a quick application assessment, it can become a lot clearer where you sta?d ?ith toda?’s appli?atio?s a?d ?hether or ?ot ?our s?ste?s ?eed upgrading. Fact 1 Application modernization is the transfer of data from containment in old software to a more modern version through either a complete restructure involving high levels of coding or a less invasive technique. This technique depends on the state of the application before its modernization. This is where application migration and application re-engineering take place in many instances. Fact 2 Doing an application assessment of the way your current applications operate involves the discovery of what language they were coded in. This is the first step to discovering whether or not you will either need to modernize as soon as possible, ?ou should ?o?sider it, or if ?ou do?’t ?eed to ?oder?ize at all. Application de?elop?e?t ?a?k i? the 50’s used the ?ost popular COBOL la?guage

  2. ?hi?h is ?earl? go?e fro? e?iste??e toda? u?less ?ou’re tr?i?g to ?ai?tai? a legacy device. Because of the future of the COBOL language, any application running written in this language will have to be modernized. Fact 3 While about 70% of all business transactions are still written in COBOL, these legacy applications compute less efficiently than their modern counterparts. This is?’t to sa? that COBOL does not compile fast, it si?pl? is?’t ?o?pati?le ?ith a huge number of additional functionalities that increase productivity that other languages are. “o ?esides falli?g out of e?iste??e i? toda?’s ?orld, lega?? applications are no longer able to work as efficiently as we expect them to. Application development has formed into a whole new beast in the past few years with the emergence of Node.js technology and other innovations. We can now use a real-time approach with all of our applications while indexing data from the cloud. Simply put, if you want to stay on in an always-on world, your legacy applications will not allow you to do so. In summary, ?e re?og?ize ?h? the ?If it ai?’t ?roke do?’t fi? it? phrase is so popular amongst companies today but there does come a time when every business has to deal with their legacy applications. One example could be dealing ?ith situatio?s like tr?i?g to fi?d a progra??er for COBOL ?he? there are?’t any left, which is a realisti? ?o??er?. If ?ou’re looki?g i?to doi?g a? appli?atio? assessment or application re-e?gi?eeri?g, ?ou do?’t ha?e to do it alo?e. Drop us a message if your considerations for application modernization are reaching a serious point.
