Your legacy applications can provide new opportunities for your business
In the face of uncertainty, many companies and governments withdraw from leadership roles in their marketplace, hoping to preserve existing business and assets.
However, a new breed of leaders has started moving again. In response, all organizations now need to keep pace with changes in their industry, while keeping a close watch on their bottom line. The best way to achieve this is through modernization and transformation.
What LANSA can offer
We can work with you to provide a path that reduces your risk and cost while enabling you to evolve your applications into workflow driven rich Windows or Web applications. The evolved applications integrate with your other systems and can run on both the IBM i and Windows platforms.
The complete journey through application modernization and transformation with LANSA includes:
- Understanding your existing enterprise systems and business requirements
- Modernization of your enterprise systems with Windows or Rich Internet capabilities for eCommerce and Mobile Computing
- Enhancements and improvements of your enterprise systems with workflow and CRM integration
- Evolution or rebuilding your applications onto a more modern platform
We already have numerous clients that have committed to retiring their IBM i applications who have used LANSA’s Application Modernization and Transformation Services to evolve their applications toward a modern platform and cloud computing environments.
Your newly engineered applications will add agility and flexibility to your business processes allowing you to adapt and change much faster to meet new competitive demands or requirements.
The decision to embark on an application modernization and transformation project is one that should not be made lightly. The critical nature of this type of project warrants that it be based on the needs of the business justified with proven ROI measurements and delivered by a trusted partner.
