  • App Rehosting

    Peer-proven approach to re-host AS400 application ‘as is’ on the cloud—to minimize cost and expand scale. The application is rehosted at the source code level, recompiled, and executed on the cloud of choice.

  • App Reengineering

    Approach to migrate batch jobs to the cloud, enabling developers to reduce complex code through distributed solutions on the cloud—File based processing and Near real-time processing.

  • App Rearchitecting

    Way to go when AS400 application portfolio is unable to meet current or near-future business requirements. In such a case, developers re-architect AS400 apps and process them as cloud-native workloads.
