Legacy systems modernisation

Legacy systems are extremely expensive and difficult to maintain. Developers possessing the skills to support these old technologies are very scarce. As a result, businesses lack the capability to enhance and update. Legacy code and database modernisation retains the functionality of your existing applications and databases, but changes the underlying technology to support further development of the products. Corballis’ iterative modernisation process will lower maintenance costs, improve user experience and allow your organisation to better take advantage of new technologies.

Why Corballis?

  • Comprehensive service: Our legacy re-engineering solutions cover the whole spectrum of modernisation areas including software assessment, documentation, transformation, refactoring and web-enablement.
  • Proven track record: Corballis has successfully re-engineered a large number of legacy applications written in various programming languages and frameworks.
  • Outstanding code quality: We take pride in our quality of work, so you can rest assured that the resulting code base will serve you well for a very long time.
