Legacy applications built with technologies like PowerBuilder, ColdFusion (v5 and older) Oracle Forms, COBOL and Visual Basic are costing enterprises millions to maintain, and more to upgrade. Modernizing these systems to fully functional Web applications, however, is not as simple as adding flashy UIs and deploying them in a browser. It requires well-designed procedures to transform the legacy code to a common language, and utilize that data and business logic to deploy highly-functional, interactive applications that are easier to build, deploy, maintain and use.
Nexaweb Advance is a repeatable, standards-based approach to the modernization of legacy applications. Organizations can take a mission-critical system developed in a legacy platform like PowerBuilder, ColdFusion or Oracle Forms, and transform it to a modern, enterprise web application that surpasses the original client/server experience. Nexaweb's automated capture process substantially lowers project risk and reduces the need for legacy skills, while positively affecting the accuracy and quality of results. Legacy applications are fully documented in a human readable database that enables the accurate elimination of duplicative code and architectural flaws from years of functional creep. Modernization is the best time to consider feature enhancements. With Nexaweb Advance organizations can re-factor and re-compose legacy system functions into new, rich composite web applications.
