Application modernization

From green screens to Dojo and beyond with HATS Watch the webcast replay

Transform your green-screen applications

Many businesses today still depend on traditional text-oriented, host based, “green screen” applications which can be difficult to learn and access. However, in order to accommodate users who are accustomed to using modern web and mobile applications, the businesses need more efficient, secure and high performance access to these systems. IBM application modernization solutions help you rapidly transform and integrate existing applications with new systems of engagement. These solutions deliver new, differentiated value with a greater return on technology investments while helping to drive new business growth. Many businesses have already benefitted from using IBM Rational® products to update applications and processes in order to take advantage of their existing systems and data. The following case studies describe how these various companies benefitted:

Aon Integramark established a dynamic SOA environment to automate data synchronization among the company’s many corporate applications and internal efficiency by as much as 85 percent.

Gulistan Carpet worked with IBM Business Partner® Royal Cyber Inc. to use the logic of the company’s existing applications to create a more intuitive and full-featured customer portal. Gulistan Carpet customers can now enter orders and get timely information via the web. Portal usage increased by 50 percent just one month after launch.

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp oration improved productivity of more than 5,000 users working at its domestic dealerships, even on especially busy weekends and holidays.
