Innovative solution to reduce custom code in enterprise legacy portfolios while keeping businesses agile

VANCOUVER, March 1 /PRNewswire/ - Make Technologies® Inc. is proud to introduce the Make Technologies® Enterprise Suite, an end-to-end solution for application portfolio modernization. Customers can expect to dramatically reduce the amount of custom code in their legacy portfolio without changing workflows or the way they run their business.

The Make Technologies® Enterprise Suite is built on top of Transformational Legacy Modernization (TLM®), the company's proven modernization platform. TLM® is fit-for-purpose software guided by a mature methodology and supported by the best practices of our modernization experts.

The Make Technologies® Enterprise Suite allows customers to build a pragmatic application roadmap that is closely aligned with the strategic initiatives of its business, based on strong data points such as code dependencies and application usage patterns. The result is a marked reduction in code maintenance, giving CXOs the freedom to pay more attention to essential business matters while gaining a competitive edge in their industry.

"The challenge with all organizations is their ability to do more with less and in a resource-constrained environment companies are finding it challenging to support and maintain legacy applications and simultaneously innovate.  As noted in Forrester's Enterprise and SMB Software Survey, North America and Europe, Q42008 showed that a fairly stunning change has taken place in IT leaders' plans and priorities.  Application modernization supplanted the hot topics of prior years: eBusiness, Agile, Lean, cloud, etc.  In fact the three most important software initiatives for IT decision-makers all focused on application modernization: 1) update/ modernization legacy applications; 2) upgrade enterprise applications; and 3) consolidate or rationalize enterprise applications.  The data highlights a sharp turn in IT leader's thinking; They have come to realize that streamlining bloated application portfolios is no longer an optional activity.  Rather, modernization is the best new opportunity to cut waste on low-value applications and thus free the corresponding resources for new projects and innovation."  April 26, 2010 Forrester Report.1

Make Technologies® Enterprise Suite allows businesses to:

  • Lower the cost of application maintenance by lowering the amount of custom code and creating an easy to maintain application.
  • Maximize the speed and quality of implementation with state-of-the-art, integrated tools supporting collaboration, analysis, code generation and data migration.
  • Control the output quality continuously throughout the engagement.
  • Verify the functional completeness of the modernized applications.

"As legacy systems continue to age and the speed of business continues to increase, the need to modernize enterprise-level IT is at a record high," said Bill Bergen, CEO of Make Technologies Inc. "Many companies are investing millions of dollars into a modernization project and cannot afford setbacks or failure. Organizations are looking to understand what they own - to quantify the business value and maintenance of their applications so as to devise a rational plan for streamlined modernization efforts. Make Technologies® Enterprise Suite ensures complete project success through its combined software, methodology, and best practices."
