Maintaining and upgrading legacy systems is one of the most difficult challenges CIOs face today. While constant technological change has weakened the business value of these systems, they have been developed over many years and financed through large investments.

Despite their obsolescence, legacy systems continue to provide a competitive advantage by containing invaluable knowledge and historical data. Modernizing legacy applications that are mission critical must preserve their functionality during the migration or re-platforming process.

Saras America uses a holistic approach to modernizing legacy applications that addresses not only technology re- platforming but also data migration, process redefinition, and EAI issues as well as staff training and participation needs. Our proprietary platforms and software application development methodologies, productivity tools, and open source solutions enable us to generate and assemble new, custom applications at prices comparable to off-the-shelf software. While our Real-time Integrated Transition methodology incorporates user participation and delivers new applications incrementally though a carefully managed series of events that prevents a cliff-event at final cutover.
