    Legacy Migration Process

    We are global leader in providing innovative technology-enabled business solutions and services

    Process :
    The rich experience of transforming legacy systems to more efficient and effective applications since 1999 has helped K-Soft identify strategic factors in defining the migration methodology and plans, and a legacy system conversion procedure.

    • Migration methodology can encompasses a strategy that:
    • Integrates Legacy Systems and new Internet driven technologies
    • Migrates systems and business logic to new architectures, languages and web-based environments
    • Manages and ensures systems quality and stability

    Plan :

    • Migrate a legacy or existing application to a new operating environment
    • Replace a legacy system, moving the data from the legacy application to the new application while preserving data integrity
    • Consolidate legacy systems eliminating duplication by moving data and functionality from various systems to a smaller number of systems

    Legacy System Conversion procedure :

    • It is tailored to each client's case; still it normally comprises the following steps:
    • Initial analysis step allows sufficient understanding of the original application functionality
    • Functional decomposition of the original application. Examples of the defined functional components are screens, reports, etc.
    • Selection of the defined functional components, which should be ported to the new application. This step may require extensive discussion and agreement with the customer
    • Development of the system conversion specification. This comprehensive document in particular indicates change requirements to the original functionality and new required features
    • Development of proper data conversion mechanisms allows identification of and resolution of data inconsistency problems

    A Parallel Run step including compatibility checklists is often required to make sure that original application correctly reproduces the legacy system functionality. The Parallel Run normally requires a defined period of concurrent use of both legacy application and the new system on the same data.

    Custom Translation Tools:
    Porting a large-scale software application demands strong automation to meet economic and timeframe objectives. K-Soft India team can design and implement custom translators to meet the requirements of the customer's migration task.
