The Migration Series 1 Migrating your Legacy Applications to Java
Presentation Contents • What is considered Legacy? • What is considered new? • What is the need to migrate/modernize? • Modernization: Opportunities to explore • Solution - Java • Manageability, Security and Connectivity • Reach us
What is considered Legacy? • Cobol • Foxpro • eServer iSeries/400 commonly known as AS/400 • Old vendor development tools • Hierarchical databases • Inaccessible and outdated technologies • Proprietary hardware with unusual chipsets • Bus architectures • Too heavy applications
What is considered new? • Modern Technologies • Web/GUI interfaces • Standard development tools • Relational databases • Enterprise integrated systems on new technologies • Standard hardware with common chipsets • Service oriented architecture • Enhanced storage with lighter applications
What is the need to migrate/modernize? • Expand the application meeting business challenges • Availability of high-rated and quality programming skills and development expertise. • Availability of resources who can effectively migrate applications on older technologies like Cobol, AS/400 to Java and other new technologies. • Higher programmer productivity possible with new tools and technologies. • Availability of Cost-effective technologies. • Option to reuse existing application and data investments for new applications. • Custom development as an incentive for dynamic businesses.
Modernization: Opportunities to explore • You can develop your applications using the most current industry standard application development tools. • You can architect your newer applications using industry standard programming paradigms. • You can deploy your applications on a scalable, yet industry standard application server (s). • You can integrate your applications with other applications in the enterprise as SOA (service-oriented-architecture) services • You can store your data in a high performing, yet standard relational database • You can access your data via database access technologies over the web anytime • Connectivity of your current applications can be enhanced using industry standard network protocols
More opportunities to explore • You can re-face your existing applications with modern graphical user interfaces, both for the desktop and the web making it easy for you to maintain the application and train the end-users. • You can modernize your native hierarchical database databases to a relational form thus lowering your development cost, leveraging your existing business logic and data investments, while maintaining older levels of availability. • You can have your applications and data accessible from heterogeneous platforms and applications using standard interfaces and protocols. • You can implement new business logic using modern programming languages and paradigms. This enables enhanced software programmer productivity and a lower cost of operation.
Solution - Java • A complete toolset. • Service oriented architecture. • Integration of your applications, enterprise, medium and small, with other service providers and enterprise applications using standard java APIs. • Simplifies development by using widely adopted open-source frameworks. • Standardized web services, you can even use them from GUI applications. • Large availability of 3rd party partner products, that provide you with options that you can only dream of with legacy applications. • Option to use an industry standard relational database for your operational data.
Solution - Java • Lower development cost with reduced programming. • Increased accessibility to data with industry standard access technologies. • Improved application uptime. • Handle large databases at ease. • Connectivity products enable you to remotely access SQL data using standard java database technologies. • Enhanced Governance and Manageability. • Heterogeneous interoperability possible. • Full support for modern languages. • Easy Portability. • Absolutely transparent scalability and fault tolerance.
Manageability, Security and Connectivity • You can develop new applications on java that give you heterogeneous manageability and an adaptive infrastructure integration. • You get an enhanced system-wide security with data encryption and regulatory compliance. • You can connect using industry standard network protocols (TCP/IP) and Web Servers.
The choice is yours • You have your legacy applications. • You have the option to migrate to new applications on Java for which iBoss can help you.
