By Business Solution: Systems Integration
Can you teach an old system new tricks? Sure, but it may not be cost-effective. Your legacy systems run your business, but they are not as flexible as you need them to be. Reconfiguring a process or adding support for a new type of transaction can be prohibitively expensive. Worse yet, if your mainframe programmers are busy doing frequent maintenance, these new feature requests may find themselves on a long list of things you wish there was time to do.
Once the data and business processes on your legacy systems are accessible, you can use them from off-the-shelf products and custom applications. This enables you to:
If your application is typical, your investment in this capability will be returned quickly and repeatedly.
- incorporate that information into business intelligence tools, workflows, reporting and notification services, mobile applications and more.
- give your employees, customers, or vendors secure view-only or transactional access via Portals, desktop or web applications, or web services.
- develop solutions without incurring mainframe or enterprise application development overhead
If you are considering migrating from a large system rather than just interfacing to one, we can help with that as well. Our approach enables a more gradual transition that proves the scalability and reliability of new systems before investing in a complete conversion.
