Rehost and Replatform Mainframe Applications and Data
If your applications and data assets are currently meeting business needs, but your organization is looking to quickly reduce cost or begin a phased modernization solution, mainframe rehosting solutions from Clerity may be the most appropriate path forward. Rehosting preserves valuable business logic and existing investments so you can maintain the enduser's front end experience while yielding cost savings of as much as 80%. Rehosting can either be a destination on its own and long-term solution for your organization, or it may be part of a larger, phased IT transformation project across your enterprise.
Modernize and Service Enable Legacy Assets
If you would like to provide new functionality without the risks involved with rewriting, reusing legacy assets through modernization and SOA enablement may be a good choice. With Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect, you can rapidly transform inflexible 'green screen' applications into modern, user-friendly Web applications while leaving underlying business logic and data processes unchanged and your existing staff can quickly assemble and deploy 3270-based transactions from UniKix TPE, mainframe-based IBM® CICS® applications and IBM® IMS® transactions, in addition to COMMAREA-based applications and native data Web services as multi-step, multi-operation composite business services.
Rewrite and Re-engineer Mainframe Applications
Depending on the size and complexity of your legacy environment, redevelopment on a lower cost platform can also make sense. Specific languages like Assembler, Fortran, and certain 4GLs are typically rewritten during a move to open systems. A major redevelopment project generally involves designing a completely new system that utilizes a modern architecture to implement the business logic of the legacy mainframe application.
