Alleviate a million-line code base burden
Our client’s mainframe-based suite of sales applications was one of its crown jewels—but the million-line COBOL code base was also a heavy technical burden that was expensive to maintain and slowed sales innovation. We helped to modernize 16 sales subsystems, re-engineer the logic of the COBOL applications, and rewrote them in Microsoft .NET. We then migrated the applications to Microsoft Azure using Azure Cloud Services.
Develop new features faster
Now that this client has adopted DevOps development practices, agile project management, and a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) process, the enterprise has seen a substantial speedup in its sales innovation cycle, slashing its new-feature release cycle from six weeks to three weeks and accommodating minor changes at any time.
Access more talent
The large legacy codebase made it difficult to refresh the IT talent pool because most new IT pros focus on cloud environments. By embracing the cloud, they now have access to a broader, better talent base. And by standardizing on Azure, the company can reuse talent across the organization.
