Our modernization services are focused on reducing total cost of ownership (TCO), improving the ability of systems to support changing business strategy and simplifying the management of the IT portfolio. Our unique ability to tackle clients' highest value challenges, to use the very latest technologies and to optimize cost using a mixed-shore delivery model, mean we're a reliable modernization partner to CIOs and senior managers.
Case studies show that modernization initiatives have many benefits:
licenses for the latest technologies are significantly cheaper (Microsoft etc.) than mainframe licenses or even free (open source) - savings of 80% are realistic in some environments; the required hardware is cheaper and more ubiquitous; required maintenance and programming skills are cheaper and more ubiquitous
well designed, modern IT systems fail less frequently and are easier/cheaper to diagnose and fix when they go wrong
migrating the costliest and most maintenance-hungry applications first frees up valuable mainframe-skilled resources to work on higher value tasks
where mainframes favor communication in batches only, the latest platforms make inter-application communication possible in real time, giving much more responsive business functionality; new platforms can also be more easily changed and upgraded to respond to changing business needs.
We have a wide range of modernization experience which allows us to provide services tailored exactly to a client's needs.
