Support customers in their digital transformation journey without business disruption.
CIOs globally are under pressure to quickly implement business and regulatory changes in the technology landscape. While delivering an excellent customer experience is a priority, this is often hampered by core mainframe systems that are technically complex. As applications age, they grow larger, more complex and harder to comprehend. Moreover, organizations depend on manual processes to locate and remedy issues, which is time-consuming and an unwise use of resources that should be leveraged to deploy critical changes.
Gautam Khanna, Vice President and Head of the Infosys Modernization Practice, explains: “To begin modernization, demystifying existing mainframe applications is essential to maintain full business continuity. The core business rules have to be identified and mapped, and this is where Infosys helps customers get more value from their mainframes immediately by leveraging Micro Focus technology.”
Rather than building business services from scratch, Infosys helps organizations extend the value of their current, trusted business processes by shifting the business services online or on mobile. This helps reach new audiences and comply with updated regulations more quickly and at lower risk.
When a client decides to modernize a mainframe application it is imperative that the wealth of experience coded into the application, the business logic, is not lost. Errors due to incomplete application knowledge, inadequate interviews, and dated documentation can lead to inaccurate functional specifications. Ultimately, these mistakes are magnified in the modernized applications, leading to unpredictable and unexpected results.
