Legacy Software Systems

Modernizing old software to work in line with the business today.

Odds are, you’re running a set of outdated legacy software systems that are no longer meeting the needs of your business. This scenario is all too common today – business across the world are moving rapidly just to barely keep up with trends in mobility, security, and cloud infrastructure.

Many systems run on older technologies that have proven their value yet are complex, expensive and difficult to maintain, and often too rigid to help you accelerate time-to-market, improve customer service and expand into new markets. QAT Global can help you capitalize on your existing technology investments by retrofitting them with newer, high-performing technology that will increase the power, efficiency, and effectiveness of older systems or re-engineering them.

Increase organizational flexibility, reduce cost of running a business, and fuel growth by modernizing and migrating legacy systems, architectures and processes.

Use Cases

  • Do you need to rapidly improve your existing applications to meet new business demands that your organization faces?
  • Unsure of the long-term capability to take your existing softwares and scale them for higher usage and more traffic?
  • Have you faced a previous technology outage that has caused financial and operational setbacks because of your existing applications?
  • Not sure how to measure the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your existing applications and whether re-development is a potential option?

Legacy Modernization Options

Benefits of updating legacy software systems:

  • Move from a language that is hard to support to one that is simple and well-supported with development tools.
  • Gain access to a larger pool of potential staff; young developers are reluctant to learn “legacy” languages and the number of experienced developers is quickly diminishing as the baby boomer generation retires.
  • Bug fixing.
  • New features implementation.
  • Improve system performance.
  • Meet user expectations.
  • Improve integration options with other IT system.
  • Utilize less expensive, new hardware.
