Protogenist' Applications Modernization Services (AMod) along with the complementary offerings of Portfolio Assessment and Rationalization, transforms legacy applications from aging environments to modern application platforms (for example, Windows, Unix, Linux, z/OS) using service-oriented architectures (i.e., .NET and J2EE) that take advantage of today's open standards.
We leverage industry and domain expertise, applications knowledge, and strategic planning capabilities to quickly and efficiently move legacy applications to modern platforms that provide more functionality, flexibility, and better economy. The result is an architecture that aligns to the client's business, operations and budget needs to support business growth strategy.
Provides a detailed understanding of current application environment thereby reducing the migration risk of subsequent modernization activities and establishes a baseline.
Analyzes code structure and performance to improve the maintainability and performance of the code.
Migrates applications to lower-cost platforms without changing the application code base, features, functions, look or feel of the application.
Establishes new web-based service-oriented interfaces to existing or rehosted applications.
Reverse engineers applications to their baseline requirements (relearn), then forward engineers those applications to new languages and new architectures based on modern open standards.
Implements standardized enterprise packages or develops custom applications that replace existing legacy applications.
Using our applications rationalization services, we conduct an applications portfolio assessment to determine the strategic value of applications based on their business, functional, technical and financial quality. We create a modernization road map that recommends modernization strategies for each application and we develop a business case to support the modernization journey.
We establish a modernization program that executes the modernization strategies as applications projects in a series of phases designed to create cost savings early that will fund subsequent phases.
As we plan the transition to the modern agile state, the business transformation is carefully managed as the modernized applications are deployed to the operations, mitigating any business risk to business continuity.
At the completion of the modernization journey, we have reduced the cost of IT to the business and achieved a level of flexibility that enables the business to respond to changes in the marketplace and allocate a larger percentage of the IT budget to strategic growth initiatives.
Protogenist deploys a repeatable approach for modernization which is also flexible to allow choice of elective strategies suiting different business needs. Protogenist' expertise in modernization is focused on mitigating project and operational risk during modernization. The strategy aims at reducing the overall cost of ownership preserving the value of legacy systems, but promoting its flexibility and integration taking advantage of technology and business innovation.
