Legacy Modernization Services

As we move on from internet era and into the social, mobility and cloud age organizations face a unique challenge of keeping pace with changing technology and providing the best of experiences to all stakeholders. One of the major concerns in this area is existing Legacy systems that play an important role in delivering business services.

Our application modernization solution is designed to increase shelf-life of your current applications leveraging advancements in technology at minimal cost. We understand that core systems running successfully over many years are mission critical and organizations would want to modernize them without attempting significant changes to current functionality. In process of doing so, businesses may not be willing to completely re-write the existing system on new platform. With our proven expertise to modernize the applications for our clients, we have added many more years of shelf life to several ISV products and end-user in-house custom applications.

We are industry leaders in Legacy Progress based technologies and have proven expertise in migrating complex Progress applications ranging from ERP systems, CRM systems and other business and enterprise applications to newer web based distributed applications platforms using today’s popular technology frameworks based upon .Net, Java, HTML5 and others.

We realize that cloud computing presents valuable opportunities for businesses today. JKT considers cloud as one of the key platforms for modernizing and have integrated offerings for cloud migration along with up gradation and reengineering options.
