Legacy applications continue to drive day-to-day business processes in many companies. Yet while they may be key to operations, legacy applications also create maintenance and integration-related challenges that can devour resources and shrinking IT budgets. Furthermore, legacy applications inhibit the development and integration of new solutions and technologies that enable responsiveness to business change. With IBM Legacy Trasnformation services, you can redynamise your legacy application portfolio and exploit its full value while allowing you to use the savings to your true business needs.
IBM Legacy Transformation Services can deliver real business value in terms of decreased costs of operation for maintenance and support, and rapid enablement of new application solutions that integrate into your application portfolio. Our world-class business and IT consulting experts can work closely with your company to evaluate your legacy portfolio and help you identify the areas most likely to benefit from these services.
The people of IBM Global Services also work with your team to establish return on investment (ROI)-related goals for producing real business value. For example, if your objective is to reallocate funds to forward-looking IT initiatives, we can help you better anticipate the savings potential of transformation projects.

Web-enabling applications for increased collaboration and savings
Web-enabling legacy applications that provide business-critical functionality and data has become a competitive necessity for most companies. However, the costs and technical challenges of porting existing applications to the Web has delayed many of these projects. This delay, in turn, hampers collaboration and data exchange with partners, suppliers and customers.
IBM Legacy Transformation Services can help you more efficiently and cost-effectively implement B2B initiatives by Web-enabling your key legacy applications to support virtually seamless access to cross-platform data and business logic. The Web enablement service uses portlets to help your company modernise legacy application interfaces and mid-tier applications to leverage legacy functions. The increased flexibility and usability of Web-enabled legacy applications can help your company optimise business relationships and improve internal collaboration.
Renovating applications for enhanced business process flexibility
IBM Transformation Services can help you transform legacy applications into components that can be reused as valuable business assets. This transformation is accomplished by untangling the relationships between business logic and application functions and by documenting, extracting and providing a way to centrally manage business rules and logic.
With the help of the application renovation service, you can restructure individual application components over time and more easily recombine them to solve new business challenges. Application renovation can also increase application development responsiveness to business needs, and can help you to adapt more dynamically to new market opportunities.
Our skilled application management professionals can work with you to understand your unique needs. These resources are backed by industry-leading research, a service delivery model that blends vertical industry and process expertise, quality management, and low-cost global capabilities to deliver long-term strategic value and near-term ROI.
