Mphasis: Application Modernization Services
For enterprises to remain relevant in the new age, the performance of applications must constantly align with rapidly changing software platforms, faster time-to-market requirements, new performance and compliance demands, and technology redundancies.
At Mphasis, we offer a wide range of services that modernize legacy applications and enhance application management. Over 1000+ consultants, a unique Maintenance2Modernization approach, and a proprietary automation tool—NGTrans—enable us to transform application performance through capability assessment, portfolio analysis, and legacy modernization. In addition, our Source Object and Code Analyzer (SOCA) and COBOL Explorer, Analyzer, and DocuMentor (CEAD) tools work with codes that are compliable without errors and generate customizable MIS reports for code stocks.
Our service offerings include:
•Mainframe Applications Mining and Documentation
•Mainframe Modernization and Application Decommissioning
•Client Server Modernization
•Data Migration and Retention
Mphasis Application Portfolio Rationalization and Modernization is based on 7 steps:
•Re-learn: Detailed understanding of current state application baseline
•Re-factor: Code optimization to improve runtime efficiency of an application
•Re-host: Migrate to lower cost platforms without changing application features and functions
•Re-interface: Establish web-based service oriented new features and functionality
•Re-architect: Forward engineer applications to modern service-oriented architectures
•Replace: Replace applications with enterprise packages or custom developed applications
•Retire: Decommission applications and systems from service
Mphasis Front2Back™ (F2B™️) Methodology for Modernization
Mphasis enables customers to reimagine their digital future by applying a unique formula of integrated cloud and cognitive technology. Mphasis X2C2 formula for success (shift anything to cloud and power everything with cognitive), drives five dimensions of business value with an integrated consumer-centric Front to Back™ (F2BTM) Digital Transformation. Mphasis’ core reference architectures and tools, combined with domain expertise and hyper specialization are the foundation for building strong relationships with marquee customers.
F2B (Front-to-back) transformation: Non-invasive bolt-on solutions targeted for end-user / business community that provides rapid business ROI in short bursts
Mphasis X2C2 - Anything to Cloud, Powered by Cognitive:
•Right sized transformations delivering chunks of business value in a timely manner
•Best way to introduce disruptive technology (X2C2) to legacy environments
•Reference architecture-based transformation: leverages technology from previous iterations to reduce marginal cost of implementation
Mphasis App Modernization Practice
Mphasis Application Modernization (AMOD) Practice specializes and focuses on modernization strategies. Our AMOD framework components are: Application Portfolio Assessment (APA), Re-learn, Re-host, Re-architect and Retire. The framework aims at reducing the overall cost of ownership through preserving the value of legacy systems yet promoting its flexibility and integration.
While the AMOD framework covers multiple strategies, it also incorporates within itself key decision points to adopt optimal strategy for a specific requirement taking into consideration the associated risk levels, business priorities and benefits.
Mphasis Tools, Accelerators and Frameworks
Our unique tool-based Automation include:
•NGTrans: is our proprietary tool that manages migrations of legacy applications automatically. The tool automatically extracts user interface patterns, business logic, and data logic from legacy applications and maps them to the target environment and architecture. It then generates target code blocks for the new environment.
•Source Object and Code Analyzer (SOCA): is an automated source object and code analyzer tool for Visual Basic 6, C++, FORTRAN, Oracle Forms, PowerBuilder, Delphi, and COBOL. It works with codes that can be compiled without any error and generates customized MIS reports for code stocks within the area of application assessment and sizing
•CEAD (COBOL Explorer, Analyzer and DocuMentor): is a code analyzer, explorer, and DocuMentor for ‘Mainframe COBOL.’ These documents could be used for the purpose of application modernization, deploying the rules in other platforms and of course for maintenance and enhancement
•APA Toolkit : This tool removes a lot of Manual tracking, validation and portraying the disposition of each of the application that has been assessed for Modernization.
•Doc2Code: Doc2Code’ is a highly configurable auto code generation tool. Generates required code output by automatically reading the requirement & specification documents. It has an excellent IDE to quickly define UI layout and other specifications in an easy way. Generate target outputs like
oBusiness logic services (Java & C#)
oOther architectural interfaces
oStandard code for containerization.
