When the existing doesn't really fit anymore and thwarts new development, the call for "We'll make everything new with ..." is quickly heard. But, it is worth taking a closer look: Why should everything be redone if the basic functionality of the applications has proven its worth and does not change? What exactly is bothering you? And can the desired goals perhaps be achieved much faster with a targeted modernisation?
Instead of making everything new, the insurance group Provinzial Rheinland decided to migrate their proven applications from IBM IMS/DB to Db2 in cooperation with Delta. They thus created future security and, above all, freedom for new development much faster than with a re-implementation of the existing functionality. Read more in our report.
And thinking even further: Can targeted modernisation become part of the normal development process? At the workshop "Software Reengineering & Evolution" of the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik - GI), we presented a sustainable solution and its practical utilisation by a customer. Read the detailed article about the "Washing Machine that Automatically Cleans up Technical Debts".
We have also provided a new version of our generative development system Delta ADS for you.
We wish you an insightful read and look forward to your enquiries and feedback.
