Upgrading ERP Systems
Upgrading legacy systems is one of the most difficult challenges businesses face today. Constant technological change often weakens the business value of systems, which have been developed over the years through huge investments. Modernising and upgrading these systems while keeping their functionality intact is important to the smooth operation and profitability of your business.
Industry Analysts International Data Corp. estimated that 200 billion lines of legacy code are still in use today on more than 10,000 large mainframe sites. Driving the need for change is the cost versus the business value of legacy systems, which according to some industry polls represent as much as 85-90% of an IT budget for operation and maintenance. IT departments also find it increasingly difficult to hire developers qualified to work on applications written in languages no longer found in modern technologies.
