legacy applications Migration by Omniesolutions
Re-engineering and data migration are two important processes in IT organizations. In this, the processes are applied on the business firm that has chosen to automate their previous manual systems. In today’s fast paced world where everything is changing according to the business demands and technological challenges, it is important to opt for migration and re-engineering process for the existing business.

In both the cases, the data will be migrated from the legacy systems based on older technology or the previous product versions to the current upgraded systems. When you start facing difficulties while optimizing the business processes and if you have the legacy systems. And the legacy systems maintenance costs are also increasing in day to day life. This is the time, when you should opt for the strategic way to a build a long term plan that includes how to upgrade and grow in the IT infrastructure without changing its fundamental and go for re-engineering and data migration.
In the re-engineering process, it often helps us to correct data during and after the migration from the legacy systems to ensure that there is a smooth data flow and proper integration in the upgraded version. In the re-engineering, they don’t replace the whole legacy system but alter the few details which help us to achieve the functional and technological enhancement in the system.

The challenges faced by the organizations when they actually think to apply these services are:
  • To keep the legacy system: In this process, the organizations have to spend a lot of money to keep a team which support and maintain your existing system. More importantly as the time will pass, the system will become more complex and maintaining such complex system will be more difficult and costly.
  • Quality Assurance: Technology and advancement is not stagnant, it’s an ever growing process. Solutions which were created years ago are not that manageable as compared with the new ones. Sometimes it’s very important to track the process and quality of the system. Using old techniques to find the details are not just draining but costly and time consuming. Applying these new processes will help to maintain the quality and performance of the system.
  • Maintaining Business agility: It not easy to maintain the legacy and still manages to fulfill all the business requirements and demands. To maintain the fundamental is important because of the market image or the brand image of the organization. Missing out the agility of the business will leads to market loss and loss of competitive advantages.

Whatever is the reason behind, for the data migration, the ultimate goal should be to improve the corporate performance and to deliver all the competitive advantages. In order to achieve the successful data migrations one must understand its functionality. Without a proper planning, there is a high risk of going over budget, late scheduling, or even the project failing completely.

The main objective of data migration and re-engineering services are to help customers to reduce their maintenance cost and allow them to upgrade their system without losing the legacy of their organization. It enhances the functionality, makes it technologically sound, and gives clean and manageable codes and a bug free system.
