Modernization means different things to different people. Modernization might mean one or more of the following items:

  • Creating a user interface
  • Refactoring a database
  • Making major changes to code
  • Making minor changes to code
  • Making no changes to code
  • Integrating new applications
  • Any permutation or combination of the preceding items

Modernization can be anything from screen scraping an application to converting it to a tiered or service-oriented architecture (SOA).

Modernization can consist of any permutation and combination of using an independent software vendor (ISV) solution, redesigning a database, redesigning and recoding application programs, coding new programs, using new programming languages, and writing new applications. Modernization is a broad term with many different aspects to consider. This goal of this publication is to provide a holistic view of modernization.
