This webinar is presented by Cindy Howard, ATERAS EVP, Conversion Solutions and John Bird. Legacy environments simply can't handle the real-time business needs of today without challenges and work-arounds. The licensing cost for all the software required to run a mainframe are through the roof and only increasing. Legacy resources are retiring and one won't be seeing any COBOL, CICS or DB2 Programmers in this year's graduating class. Legacy transformation requires automation. It simply takes too long to rewrite millions of lines of old legacy code. One can learn the defining Legacy Modernization - options, How Legacy Modernization delivers short term and long term savings, Improving operational efficiency, Ways to improve productivity through legacy understanding, APM tools that document and analyze the IT environment, CIBER's Legacy Migration Testing Approach. Cindy Howard is responsible for the people, process and technology used to deliver legacy migration and modernization services. Over the course of her career, Howard has managed and directed hundreds of projects and functions for clients at ATERAS. John Bird, CIBER VP Legacy Modernization Services knows that transforming established applications to a more modern architecture or language is a cost-effective way to maximize the IT investment. Bird has led many implementations that extend, wrap or replacing existing applications and can help clients understand the benefits and risks associated with each option.
