AMELIO Modernization Platform
AMELIO Modernization Platform
Changing Platforms – Modernization – Agile Business Functions
Changing productive large-scale IT applications is accompanied by tremendous costs, unpredictable risks and a great deal of time. The challenge, however, is not in the changes themselves, but in the vast quantity of application modules that need to be changed, as well as in the difficulty – sometimes even the impossibility – of sufficiently isolating individual applications in a way that enables you to securely implement the changes.
With AMELIO you accomplish these projects securely, quicker and with less resources.
"A decisive factor in selecting AMELIO was its new meta-level test concept: It allows us to save 90% and more of the test effort and costs. The flexible In-place Migration ensures minimal blocking times as we can combine in production already transformed and not yet transformed components without any problem."
Gerard Doll, Director ICT, RDW, The Netherlands
AMELIO – The Factory that Changes Your Applications Reliably
The AMELIO Modernization Platform not only helps you to change your COBOL or PL/1 applications. AMELIO actually does the work for you – securely and efficiently:
- AMELIO tells you exactly how big your problem really is.
- AMELIO analyses all source code, including all meta-level components such as macros, copybooks etc.
- AMELIO automates the changes – 100%.
- AMELIO dramatically reduces your test effort.
- AMELIO guarantees the full integrity and operability of your applications at all times.
- AMELIO implements your changes without blocking other projects.

"AMELIO allowed us to build a modernization factory that reduced by 90% the effort needed for a critical SQL migration project in our core Unisys OS2200 applications. Our trust in AMELIO was confirmed in other transformation projects, including Y2K and an ACOB/UCOB COBOL compiler migration project"
Dieter Zink, IT-Director, Wiener Gebietskrankenkasse (Vienna health insurance), Austria
What Can AMELIO Do for You?
The core activity in software modification projects is to make a series of well-defined changes that focus on clearly identifiable aspects throughout all of your existing application components – without endangering your applications’ integrity of functionality. We are talking about mass changes: Thousands of modules have to be changed – more or less simultaneously – to introduce new data structures, new functional structures or even new technologies.
For the following requirements AMELIO can help you solve the problems arising from the huge number of modules and from complexity:
- Changing the Platform – Hardware, operating system or other system components like compilers, DBMS etc. are changing, or you want to save money by rightsizing and off-loading.
- Modernizing the Application Architecture – This includes changing individual application layers e.g. a front-end modernization for using new (web-) technologies, introducing a separate data server layer as well as extensive modifications coming along with the introduction of service oriented architectures (SOA).
- Changing the Business Functions – Such deep changes are often initialized by external claims: internationalization, new legal requirements like Basel II or the Sarbanes Oxley Act or re-organizations due to mergers & acquisitions are just a few of the catchwords used in this context.
Usually, these are expensive and risky projects which nonetheless are a part of everyday's business. The productive lifetime of business functions is often measured in terms of decades. The technologies, however, have a much shorter lifetime. To accomplish such projects you will need flexible tools that are able to change your applications exactly as needed – without endangering their functionality.
AMELIO analyses your applications and changes them reliably and automatically. AMELIO helps you to accomplish these projects with economically meaningful costs and effort. Projects dealing with the modernization of legacy applications and software architectures are the ideal operational areas for AMELIO!

Every Project is Different!
In large software modification projects, volume, complexity as well as the demands for high quality and security call for the application of automated solutions. However, every project is different! It is defined by your applications, architectures, platforms, languages, technologies and many other aspects, i.e. by the existing and future elements of your IT portfolio. There is no standard solution to master this balancing act. Well then?
Bespoke Automation with AMELIO
Why should you decide in favour of a bespoke solution? A bespoke modernization factory with generative tools has the following advantages:
- safe, manageable and stepwise approach
- guarantee for the applications' stability at any time
- no blocking of other development projects and on-going maintenance
- drastically reduced test effort
Our customers don’t want "quick & dirty" results. When changing their IT applications they are looking for solutions that seamlessly integrate into their environments and that can be maintained without any additional effort.
AMELIO Modernization Platform offers you a broad spectrum of prefabricated components for discovery, analysis, transformation and generation. These elements are introduced into your individual and project-specific modernization factory. Each element is configurable and can be individually extended and enhanced. They will be supplemented with project-specific rules and generators.
Is AMELIO the Right Solution for You?
A bespoke solution that fully automates the implementation of the changes not only minimizes the effort for the changes themselves, but it also paves the way to a new approach for both the organisation and testing.
With AMELIO Modernization Platform we offer you a flexible and generative solution that is tailored to exactly to meet your specific modernization task.
- The goal-oriented “In-Depth Discovery” detects with 100% certainty all locations that might be concerned.
- The information-rich analysis provides you with reliable key metrics about the real complexity of your modernization project and the potential degree of automation. It will tell you in advance exactly which changes need to be processed where.
- 100% automation of the changes gives absolute safety.
- The new Meta-level Testing reduces your test effort dramatically. (A huge current project rates the reduction at more than 90%!)
Please refer to our fact sheet to learn more about the technology behind AMELIO.
Using AMELIO you won't guess, but know exactly what has to be changed and how it has to be done! You will be able to modernize your mission-critical legacy applications economically and reliably. Exactly as demanded by your concrete requirements – nothing more, but also nothing less.
"Our customers are not looking for standard products but call for bespoke automation: precisely defined changes are to be processed visibly and documented to pass even the strictest auditing. One of the main concerns is that the necessary test efforts might go beyond the financial scope, " summarizes Rüdiger Schilling, CEO of Delta Software Technology the requirements. "With AMELIO we provide them with a tailor-made solution for their specific project requirerments. Moreover, AMELIO reduces test efforts dramatically - we are talking about 90% and more!"
