Mainframe Application Reverse Engineering - Key to Unlocking Your Business Content

Mainframe Application Reverse Engineering - Key to Unlocking Your Business Content

Abstract

More than ever before today‟s end users are very intolerant of delays in obtaining relevant information, non-interactive Websites, and noncollaborative applications. Naturally, businesses need to incorporate changing user demands and preferences into their IT strategy. Whereas for modern systems that may not be a very tall order, for mainframe systems it is. Although there is a gradual trend to migrate to newer systems, the bulk of global business transactions continue to be processed by mainframes, especially in industrialized economies. For that reason mainframe systems continue to remain relevant to enterprises. Instead of throwing out the baby with the bath tub, mainframe customers are warming up to the idea of mainframe migration and modernization. 

Excerpts from the Paper
Mainframe application migration and modernization are two popular approaches for enterprises to cope with constantly changing business requirements. Typically, application migration may include the migration of databases, languages, and software as well as hardware platforms. Mainframe modernization refers to integrating the legacy application with enterprise-wide applications. This includes, among others, activities such as replacing the traditional green screens with GUI, integrating mainframe applications with the enterprise-wide systems, and using a SOA approach to expose the underlying business or Web services in legacy applications. The timely and the successful completion of software projects are among the top most reasons for enterprises to modernize their legacy applications.
