ATERAS Partners With AberdeenGroup to Sponsor 'The Legacy Application Modernization Benchmark Report'

Transforming Mainframe, AS/400 and Unix Applications in an SOA World

DALLAS, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- ATERAS, a leading provider of 100% automated solutions for legacy migration, today announced that it has partnered with AberdeenGroup to sponsor The Legacy Application Modernization Benchmark Report. The report was published on September 30, and details the strategies, drivers, and successes behind companies' efforts to move older software applications - often called "legacy" systems - into today's newer architectures and technologies, especially Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). Businesses are adopting SOA to give them greater visibility into their processes and allow them to react more quickly to changes in order to maintain competitive positions and reduce life-cycle software maintenance costs.

The primary goal of SOA is to expose application functions in a way that makes them reusable and standardized. Once created, they can be leveraged across multiple projects and applications, allowing enormous interoperability between business processes. SOA blurs the lines between software and service, creating a revolution in IT departments and radically changing the software industry. It saves companies money, greatly increases productivity, and empowers application and enterprise architects to implement and manage business processes as services.

"SOA implementation is an opportunity to bring together diverse aspects of the technology house," said Peter S. Kastner, AberdeenGroup research VP and the report's author. "Many legacy applications will benefit from open access to new functionality in newer applications. Using automated modernization technology on the road to SOA to unlock legacy application value has a high payback."

ATERAS provides automated solutions for legacy migration and modernization that protects legacy assets, reduces maintenance costs, provides agility and flexibility, and enables SOA within business-critical applications. The ATERAS approach to Enterprise IT modernization represents a unique, automated solution that unlocks the value of legacy IT investments by automating the migration of mission critical systems to new IT technology. The ATERAS solution converts legacy applications and databases to new technologies, while preserving the business rules, the processing logic, the business workflow, and the knowledge of the current IT staff.
