Managed Legacy with Consist

Advancing forward with digitalization while keeping business-critical legacy applications running at the same time, as well as compensating for a lack of specialized staff, particularly in the old technologies – this can be smoothly done with Managed Legacy from Consist.

We offer you the combined know-how of our legacy experts, a mixed age-group team of experienced and young specialists. As an investment in the future, we train the next generation of IT staff in legacy technologies, in order to also enable the long term support and further development of old, mature applications and systems. Trust in our years of experience.
