The quick, cheap, and easy way other companies claim to “modernize” software is with a simple “lift and shift”. By that, they mean they “petrify” the same old code by encasing it in software containers. Then lifting that toxic payload onto runtime layers that emulate the old platform, and operate that obsolete, un-securable, out-of-support, unmaintainable, code in the cloud. This approach doesn’t cure the source code health problems that plague obsolete source code running on unsupported platforms.
For many companies, the knee-jerk reaction to legacy is the full green-field rewrite. At least 70% of those projects fail to meet budget, schedule, or requirements, according to multiple studies. Software rewrite projects are fraught with risk and take substantially longer than using automated software migration tools.
The IT landscape is littered with the wreckage caused by legacy applications that blew up, stopped working, or opened the door for hacks and malware. Just as companies who adopted electric power out-competed the legacy steam-powered ones, organizations that fail to address legacy software will be left behind.
Automated modernization software saves time and money Automated modernization can, in a single process, convert 95% of source code to the target platform. The remaining work can be done by the in-house development team, and outside systems integrator, or Mobilize.Net's own engineering services team. Actual project data, collected over a 25 year period, confirms that automated modernization saves as much as 75 percent of the time required to rewrite a legacy application. Cost savings are similar, averaging about 35% of the cost of a manual rewrite.
