Nexaweb Advance Offers Customers Comprehensive Solution for Legacy Modernization and Enterprise Web 2.0 Adoption

New Product & Services Bundle Delivers Repeatable, Legacy Modernization Methodology and Architecture; Process Includes Fully

BURLINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/03/08 -- Nexaweb Technologies®, Inc., the leading application platform provider for the productivity-driven enterprise, today announced Nexaweb Advance(SM) -- a technology-enabled modernization solution that allows enterprises to transform legacy business applications from 3GL/4GL technologies to rich, composite web applications with less risk, in less time, and at less cost.

Enterprise organizations have long desired to move to web-based application platforms and solutions that reduce the total cost of ownership, improve customer service and remove geographical and technical barriers to adoption. Yet, most have chosen to continually spend an average of 60-85% of their IT budget maintaining these legacy applications rather then modernizing them. This is because for many, a manual modernization process poses too many risks, will take too long, and is too expensive. Legacy migration tools offer a code-to-code or database-to-database solution, but fall well short of providing an application transformation solution that supports standards-based development and web deployment.

"Web 2.0 is having a revolutionary effect on the enterprise workforce, and much like client/server replaced mainframe, will forever change the future of business application development," said Judith Hurwitz, president, Hurwitz & Associates. "It is important that customers have the opportunity to leverage the corporate value that is captive inside their legacy artifacts so that they can quickly move to a more dynamic platform that supports business growth."

Nexaweb Advance pairs Nexaweb's award-winning Enterprise Web Suite with automated code generation tools and its Professional Services experts to deliver a repeatable, Model Driven Architecture approach to the transformation of legacy PowerBuilder, ColdFusion, C++, VisualBasic, and Oracle Forms applications.

The application transformation process with Nexaweb Advance includes the following steps:

--  Capture: Auto-generate documentation of legacy artifacts, logic, User
    Interface (UI) elements and data maps in standards-based representation
    (UML, etc.)
--  Re-factor: Eliminate duplicative and corrupt code, review code for
    architectural integrity, and delver UI and business logic to a customer-
    specified architecture
--  Re-compose: Auto-generate XML from documented legacy code, add new
    features and modify workflow, design Web UI and functionality using an
    Eclipse-based IDE
--  Deploy:  Install web application across any architecture including
    JSP/HTML through to Ajax and Java, on any JEE/Java, PHP, or .NET servers,
    and via the Web or the desktop
--  Maintain: Centrally managed code base supports all users, whatever
    their client configuration and network connection type, to reduce
    application maintenance time and costs by 75% on average
    

"Nexaweb Advance presents an exciting opportunity for enterprise organizations who are dealing with globalization, compliance and legacy software end of life initiatives," said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb. "We've proven time and again that our Enterprise Web Suite offers customers tremendous time and cost savings around application development, deployment and maintenance. With Nexaweb Advance, we're embracing the legacy transformation aspect of the process, supporting it with expert services, and making it a core component of our total solution."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
