Organizations worldwide understand the need to re-engineer legacy systems and adopt open standards to meet the new business challenges. We recognize the fact that the key to modernizing legacy systems is retaining the business process knowledge embedded in the existing systems, while at the same time enabling those systems to work with new open applications and technologies.

To more effectively extract and retain this valuable knowledge we offer clients tools that automate the knowledge mining and business rule extraction process from legacy code, as well as forward-engineering into the new environment.
