ModPaaS allows you to perform a comprehensive assessment of your existing legacy applications, including asset count and asset type categorisation, missing and unreferenced components, program flows, impact and code path analysis, reporting and documentation, and more. You can also trace and isolate business rules which can be reused for re-engineering initiatives.
ModPaaS also enables you to categorise objects and applications to determine feasibility of disposition options (e.g. rehosting, automated refactoring, re-engineering, replacement, retirement, etc.) and drive ongoing modernisation initiatives with different levels of assistance. Once a disposition strategy is chosen, ModPaaS allows your team to develop a strategic modernisation plan with our assistance which includes recommendations and estimates that best suit your needs. It then allows your teams to select and extract code to be modernised. For example, you can select code specific to the UI layer or data access objects to aid microservices development efforts.
ModPaaS includes our Enterprise Application Viewer (eav), an automated assessment solution that has been used to process billions of lines of legacy code.
eav is a complete analytical team within a single tool. It provides both application and business teams with the ability to quickly understand and follow the logic within applications, between applications, and within programs. IT teams no longer need technical specialists for each application. A core team of programmers and analysts can debug, maintain, and enhance multiple complex applications within any environment.
It is also possible to predict the impact of specific changes using the integrated right-click tools, and reach documentation compliance by using the numerous reports generated by eav. eav takes the guesswork out of enhancement planning by providing full visibility into complex legacy applications, and can predict the impact of specific changes across the environment. Customers can visualise the impact of a change and predict its outcome with only minutes of effort.
The benefits of ModPaaS-powered assessments include:
Complete visibility into the legacy system: Assets loaded into ModPaaS are automatically parsed, counted, and categorised by asset type. Reports and documentation are automatically generated, and program interactions are created to represent the overall program flow, individual paragraph flow, and inter-relationships between the programs, data, and other component types.
