What does the constant modernization process for a company and how to secure logic and code? EasiRun Europe enters into this six-part series of articles on meaning and significance, conditions and goals, obstacles and barriers of IT modernization projects. Highlights include the innovations, which sometimes is even the way particularly in the mainframe field organizations open the doors and pave way back. What actually makes a legacy modernization? For all legacy applications, no matter in what language they were written, applies: They contain mostly business – or industry-specific expertise, such as customer-oriented features. In a modernisation, the source code should be adjusted only slightly. Appropriate tools effectively support the modernisation and keeping investment costs low. The possibilities range from the realization of graphical user interfaces integration of backends, Office integration or the subsequent integration of databases into existing applications. Tools that facilitate Integration, which is quite complex in terms of technology and security.

For example, usually different communication protocols must be supported. For example, re-engineering suite, supports the modernization of existing application systems and avoids major interventions in the source code. The test effort decreases accordingly. Development tools such as Visual Studio or Eclipse consist of software modules that communicate via defined interfaces with the outside world. Therefore one speaks also of Componentware. Solved problem of staff: young computer scientist can be used when the tool is environment – instantly productive.

The experienced developer be included and not lose their know how. A smooth transition into the new world”. In one to two years, a ROI is reachable, because for example in a mainframe migration platform costs through the hardware migration significantly reduce. Logic and functions remain unchanged. And it goes fast, especially since the test phases are much shorter. And last but not least: A large part of the Host applications is realized in powerful high-level languages such as COBOL, i.e. they run stably and reliably. COBOL is well scalable and handles resources sparingly. Properties that remain in the case of a modernization. It completely apart, that the resources of COBOL specialists keep dwindling. Conclusion makes a modernization project only under certain precisely validating requirements sense. Just as different as present problems, they must be solved also. Warning you must before blind actionism modernisation, restructuring and re-engineering who wants to save costs and must, should carefully plan these measures and projects. In addition, some things are not easy to accomplish. Lack of time, sometimes know-how. Darius Bikoff pursues this goal as well. And no matter how to understand never stops IT modernization. Just doing nothing certainly improves nothing. What happens if is nobody dares to identify possible errors and risks? What if the chance is missed, in time the right thing to do? Which one Consequences of adult professional and financial – from it? How much depends on the continued existence of a company, how well the internal IT works? What a start for the man who himself dares to analyze risks and solutions to demand! IT is in a good position as chance recyclers in the economic crisis savings to the company; “according to the motto: If the winds of change blowing, build a protective walls, the other windmills.” Curious?
