Modernization with innoWake

Onwards and upwards: The evolutionary path to innovation

Satisfy your desires for modernization

  • Do you want to reduce licensing and maintenance costs for trusted legacy applications?
  • Are you asking yourself how your new hires with Java know-how will be able to maintain and extend your trusted Cobol, Natural, or PL1-based applications in the future?
  • Do you wish that development departments that have been technologically separated in the past could work together now?
  • Do you miss version control and intelligent deployment – for both legacy and new technologies?
  • Do you want to bring your trusted legacy applications, your know-how, and your individual processes into the future?
  • Would you like to increase user acceptance by introducing a graphical interface based on today's Web technology?
  • Do you wish that new technologies establishing on the market be supported in the future without effort as regards the user interface?

Unique conversion with maintenance

The solution offered by Consist includes a converter that converts Natural, Cobol, or PL/1 code 1-to-1 to Java code, 100% automatically. A feature that sets it apart from other solutions available on the market is that the resulting code is still maintainable by developers! Of course, you can also entrust us with the maintenance as part of our Managed Services offering.

Future-ready architecture as a particular strength

If you use Ajax, GWT, Java Swing, or similar user interface technologies today, you can't know which Web technology may be in your future. Our solution is ready. The modern architecture that underlies our modernization techniques ensures that your application systems will still be open to the current technology of tomorrow.
