Mainframe based core business applications are the lifeblood of organizations. Thriving in a competitive digital landscape means transforming the systems hosting core business processes. Micro Focus offers solutions to improve the application modernization for core business system development and delivery. It can be employed with enterprise application knowledge gathering, development, test and deployment tools, in order to improve the efficiency and time to market. This enables IT leaders to transform and modernize their core applications and respond faster to the new business requirements.
This engagement was an initiative to re-host the clearing and switch transactions processing Mainframe applications, in order to meet the local regulatory requirements that mandates customer specific data be retained within the host country. Within a short span of time, Wipro implemented a solution for multiple critical and very complex applications to be re-hosted on Linux-AIX platform.
Micro Focus enables this transformation with minimum cost and risk, through a comprehensive joint solution with Wipro across three key pillars of modernization:
1. Application Modernization: Extend application value with low-risk innovation. From a modernized, secure web and mobile experience, to process automation, to APIs, web services, and managed code models that support composite application delivery.
2. Process Modernization: Match the enterprise application delivery speed to that of business pace. Achieve DevOps-ready rapid application understanding, agile development, continuous testing, accelerated delivery, and controlled user access.
3. Infrastructure Modernization: Achieve flexibility, security, and cost efficiency by deploying applications across host, server, Cloud, and mobile, insulating valued IT systems from infrastructure changes while assuring access security, governance and data protection controls.
