Extending the value of legacy applications
Inflexible, aging, and poorly integrated IT systems can hinder your ability to quickly innovate and deliver new products and services to your customers. Today’s users have grown accustomed to the ease of use of modern Web-based applications. However, many organizations still depend on traditional text-oriented, host based applications which can be inefficient, difficult to use, and hard to change. Organizations are looking for efficient, secure and high performance access to this information from new and existing applications to improve customer satisfaction and drive new business growth.
IBM application modernization offers solutions to help you revitalize, modernize, and extend these applications to deliver new differentiated value and realize greater return on technology investments and avoid costly rewrites.
