Business application modernization services

Help improve business alignment, cost of ownership
and application flexibility

Over the years, your organization has spent considerable resources increasing the value of your business applications. Yet while these applications-along with the information and functionality they contain-are invaluable to your business, they may be out-dated, expensive to manage or inefficient. Rather than investing in new packaged applications, organizations are looking to improve the structure, reusability, flexibility and performance of existing business applications. Traditional methods for modernizing these applications, such as rewriting or replacing existing applications, can be expensive and problematic because you risk losing the intellectual capital you have developed over the years that is buried deep in your systems.

IBM offers proven approaches that help you align legacy applications with business processes and avoid the time and cost associated with new packaged applications. IBM applies extensive industry and technology expertise to help update your legacy applications into a set of flexible, streamlined applications and processes.
