Managed Migration with Consist

What are your plans for the future of your legacy applications?

In light of increasing requirements for IT and a mature, business-critical legacy application, there are several scenarios for what the future could look like.

Consist finds the right solutions for you. We develop a new, individual software for you, or modernize your old one, as necessary. And on top of this, we also offer a suitable model for securely operating your application environment.

Modernizing your legacy application

Have you made the decision to modernize your existing legacy environment? Then trust in our years of experience established over 35 years of software development and modernization.

Regardless of whether it is Cobol, Natural or PL/I – we will modernize your legacy applications and as a result, optimize your business processes.

If you like, we will also take over the operation of your existing environment, migrate it according to your requirements and continue to operate the target system in accordance with a jointly agreed Service Level Agreement. We offer these services as part of a flat rate option.

Replacing your legacy application

Are you planning to replace your existing legacy environment? Consist will develop a new, tailor-made application for you.

Then, if necessary, we will also take over the operation of your existing environment, migrate it according to your specifications and continue to operate the target system in accordance with a jointly agreed SLA. While doing so, we ensure that the high quality of your business processes is maintained. The planning security of a flat rate system is available for these services, if you so request.

If you decide to go for a standard software, of course we will be happy to take over all the necessary services related to operation, such as supporting the replaced existing system (Managed Legacy), for example.

Continuing the legacy environment

Consist will also be pleased to support you if your existing legacy applications are of strategic long term importance to you and require continuous further development.

You can find more information under Managed Legacy.
