Any established product becomes obsolete with the passage of time. Such a product needs continual product support and upgrades, which can be both difficult and expensive. The solution is to build a product for a wide segment of potential consumers. Consequently, several business owners aim the migration of their products to a mainstream technology and a newer platform.
To help organizations attain their business goals, we capitalize on our extensive experience of application re-engineering. Cybage has a proven re-engineering methodology that appraises the investments in legacy systems by carefully analyzing the legacy application set and business logic, and then mining with a tool-based approach. Our re-engineering methodology comprises data migration, a technology migration system using tool-based reverse engineering, and forward engineering.
All these ensure a smooth transition process.
- Migration to a new software delivery model (such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (Paas), and Delivery over cloud)
- Technology and user interface upgrade
- Porting and data migration
- Legacy systems and application re-engineering
- Enterprise application integration
- Code restructuring
- Platform transition
- Language conversion
- Business problems with the current mode of operation
- Future business goals post migration
- Procedures served by the re-engineered application
- Stakeholders’ opinion about the advantages from the effort
Implementation: How we proceed with the implementation
- Assessment of the product to be migrated
- Knowledge transfer
- Research on the platform and technology to be supported and technology selection
- Research on the data domain and creation of detailed specifications for the project
- System planning (selection of the architecture, and creation of interaction protocols and technical specifications for separate modules) and prototyping
- System implementation (system specifications, construction, and QA)
- Creation of project documentation (system architecture and source code description, in addition to built-in comments in code)
- New system optimization and tuning
The initial step is to complete the pre-migration assessment. Then, the team works on the specification with a broad software development approach and methodology to deliver the product.
