Applications evolve with changes in legislative and business policies. These updates rarely get documented except in the memory of support personnel. Hence, when these employees leave or retire, the “brain drain” is significant and becomes irreplaceable when substitute personnel have little to no knowledge of the technologies in which these applications have been developed. This not only increases the cost of keeping the software updated but also magnifies the risk when attempting to modernize them.
Perform analysis on the documentation artifacts to simplify maintenance and to make informed decisions on the path to modernization.
Implement the selected path to modernization via business rules extraction or code migration.
Reports related to logistics, inventory, complexity, dead and redundant code.
Logic representation in multiple formats including in a neutral language that any programmer can understand.
As the “baby boomer” generation approaches retirement age, CIOs and IT decision-makers are beginning to see the knowledge gaps that their departures create.
Ability to identify code that will be affected in response to legislative and business policy changes.
Ability to generate reports that detail the use of variables along with the values they are assigned during execution.
Having a complete understanding of your application portfolio is vital to combat security-related risks. However, many organizations are working with a limited view, due in part to undocumented and heavily modified legacy applications. These modifications have created blind spots, which are prime targets for security breaches in today’s rapidly changing cybersecurity landscape.
