What we can offer your business

Application Analysis

Without detailed and accurate documentation, maintaining and supporting applications can be extremely difficult. For companies running in-house developed applications with complex technology environments, this is a common issue. It means they struggle with analysis, scoping projects accurately, and development and maintenance is slow, resulting in a negative impact upon productivity. Our Application Analyser can understand over 100 different languages, providing rapid, in-depth insight into your application portfolio. Your ability to interact with your applications is complete, from bottom-up source code parsing and inspection to top-down strategy planning and portfolio management. Understanding your applications is a critical first step in any major application project. After that, an effective, customised modernisation strategy can be developed and executed.

RePlatform & ReHost

The converging of platform technology is becoming a necessity. With different platforms coming to the end of their lives, infrastructure transformation needs to be undertaken by most organisations. Standardising your platform and Cloud enabling your environment can lower costs and greatly improve your IT. At Advanced, we can help you to rehost your applications and enable them for the Cloud through IBM Mainframe Migration, OpenVMS Migrationor our VME Migration Services.

Re-Architect & Transform

Transforming and modernising your applications through converging your applications into the same development technology is becoming essential. Doing so will future-proof your IT, extend the value of your mission-critical applications, reducing the cost of maintaining your legacy environment, and ensure you stay competitive. We are experts at modernising applications written in legacy languages including COBOL Migration. Our application re-architect tools and methodology transform these applications to highly maintainable and functionally equivalent applications written in modern programing languages like Java and .NET.

Maintain & Support

Ageing technology naturally leads to a shortage of skilled personnel who can support older applications. Expertise is often in short supply. Though it is an important investment, it can be costly with little or no ROI.  The experience of our teams means Advanced can maintain and support your legacy applications and/or infrastructure to allow your organisation to focus on innovation and core business initiatives. We can ensure your modern and legacy applications integrate with each other so that your IT is optimised and working together the way it should. Our well-established development experts can enhance your applications to guarantee they evolve to meet your workload’s needs now, and in the future. The services we offer deliver your organisation with a consistently supported and maintained IT estate that will benefit your organisation’s growth.

Why Itanium’s imminent demise further increases the risks associated with OpenVMS applications

The OpenVMS operating system was developed back in the 1970s, and it continues to drive numerous mission-critical business systems worldwide. These often custom core applications are invaluable to organisations across industries ranging from nuclear power to international financial services. Large sums of money and decades of time have been invested in these OpenVMS applications to meet very specific needs - but end-of-life is looming large and planning for their future is now a matter of urgency.
