Application Migration & Modernization
Zensar has a well defined methodology for Application Modernization. This is called “AMM” or “Assess-Modernize-Maintain” and is based on Application Consulting and Maintenance Led modernization approaches.
Depicted below is a snap shot of the Application Modernization service offering.
In this phase we will understand the Business Drivers and Objectives through an in-depth study of your Application Landscape. We will also assess the level of documentation and perform a current state analysis of your portfolio of applications. During the analysis we’ll Reverse Engineer the applications if not already done. We will help you in developing a blueprint for developing your future roadmap for the applications through our “4R”, namely; Re-Engineer, Replace, Retain and Retire, methodology for recommendation.
Herein we will create the readiness plan for Modernization and/or Migration of the applications and their related databases. Based on analysis previously done we will create the necessary blueprints for the future design of the applications and databases. We will also create the plan for modernization/migration in consultation with you and need of the hour from your business. We will also create a “sunset plan” for the old system and this is via our plan for “Decommissioning” of the old system.
We will make use of the robust and mature “Transition-to-Transformation” framework for support and maintenance. This framwork will bring in standardization in the overall engagement and will being the best practices in stabilization of the modern/migrated applications via Training and Continuous Service Improvements.

It will also help in phasing your strategy such as – only front end modernization, or reengineer the complete application along with the database and the business logic as well, or perform an application migration, or perform just a technology upgrade.
