Legacy Applications — Risky Business?
"It's not broken, so don’t fix it." In Information Technology (IT) this can be very bad advice. Because when your legacy application does break, and IT pros know it's not a matter of if, but when, the cost of fixing it skyrockets.

Consider these warning signs:
- You are considering migrating to a packaged product, but it won't quite do everything your old application did.
- Your legacy application is running on old hardware that can no longer be maintained.
- Updates and changes to the software are maintained by a sole individual. No one else understands the code.
- Maybe you are running critical business software on an emulator.
- Accountability does not exist in the legacy application.
- Training new users in old technology is simply a waste.
- You can't scale the application to support more data, more features, or more users.
In IT, there's always an emergency that requires your attention — another fire to put out. So, another year goes by. Your homegrown custom legacy application may not be broken — and the pain and disruption of updating it appears to outweigh the benefits from new software. Maybe if you wait long enough someone will come up with a better way to convert? Well, we have...
NetReach Provides Legacy Application Modernization and New Custom-Built Web Database Application Design and Development
Legacy Application Modernization
Your IT assets contain valuable intellectual property, and so, application modernization is not just a technology challenge — it's a key management decision.
Legacy Application Modernization can:
- Increase your company's agility.
- Minimize risk.
- Reduce costs.
- Increase your competitiveness.
- Increase efficiency.
Many of our clients were struggling to maintain outdated, custom application systems based on old languages, like FoxPro, MS Access, MS Excel, Basic, Visual Basic, Dbase, Turbo Pascal, C++, and ASP. The expertise to maintain these legacy applications is often expensive or no longer available and the application is limited to the capabilities that were available at the time it was developed. Our clients are no longer struggling and they are not worried about a legacy application failure that could cripple their company.
Your Business Rules Transformed
The Internet has changed everything in the software development world, and re-creating and enhancing legacy applications is not as expensive as you might think. NetReach can create a manageable, easily updated, scalable web database application that takes advantage of all that can be done with software today. We'll design, develop, and deploy a system that elegantly and accurately translates your business rules into an efficient, high-performance application based on Microsoft’s SQL Server/.NET 4.0 platform. These modern, secure, and encrypted browser-based applications are familiar and easy-to-use. They enhance productivity and interactivity through Web Services and provide centralized transaction processing and maintenance with distributed clients.
What's the Big Deal? Separating your Business Rules from the Underlying Code
There are a lot of horror stories regarding conversion of software and often we are asked, “Are you trading one problem that we know for another that we don't?” We can honestly say that we do not think we are. Here's why: we are not building a new application with business rules embedded in the application. That's the way your last application was built, and we think that would simply postpone the problem for another big upgrade five years from now — maybe sooner at the rate software keeps changing. We separate the business rules, business logic, and store that in a database, which lets us upgrade the underlying code the same way that you upgrade any packaged software. It means that updates to the business logic can be implemented without reprogramming the application. And that is a very big deal. Give us a call, we guarantee our work.
