Application Modernization Process Overview

Application Modernization ProcessApplication Modernization solution uses a combination of advanced automated tools, sophisticated modernization technologies and professional services to produce a high-quality, native style, multi-tier modern Java or .NET application.


To effectively manage the modernization process through the entire project duration,  a comprehensive web-enabled project management system that captures all project activity, documents all test cases and provides a clear view of daily project activity, test case status and issue tracking. Clients have online access throughout the modernization project to facilitate issue management, interaction with project resources and provide full visibility of the modernization progress.

The modernization process consists of six project stages that are designed to collectively ensure that the final solution is a functional, fully-tested, enhanced, modern application that meets all client requirements and expectations.
Six Steps of th…

Database Modernization - Migrating Legacy Database to Modern Data base

Database Migration Process is completed in these 3 easy steps:
Assessment and Project PlanningMigration ExecutionTransition, Testing and DeploymentStep 1: Assessment and Project PlanningAssess the database and analyze the source code of associated applications to identify any database-specific code that may impact the project. Use this analysis to draft a project plan :Project scope based on requirements.Work breakdown and resource allocation.Execution plan with deliverable and milestones.Project tracking methodology.Step 2: Migration ExecutionUse a range of advanced automated tools to handle the key migration tasks and ensure integrity and reliability of the database contents.  Project execution includes the following main phases:Implementation and configuration of database test environment.Database conversion (e.g. stored procedures, triggers, etc.).Modification of database-specific code in associated applications.Data porting.Testing the integrity of the transformed data.Unit testin…
