Business critical systems become end-of-life every day. The increasing costs and risks that these applications present can become a significant drain on IT departments' capabilities.
Making the decision to replace a legacy application tends to happen when there's little alternative: the application or its technology is unsupported, or business requirements have changed to the extent that the application is no longer fit for purpose.
However, you run the risk of the same thing happening again when the replacement application eventually becomes end-of-life.
But it doesn’t have to be that way...
datb customers are using applications that were first implemented over 15 years ago: these applications have been changed to accommodate new business requirements, but never because of changes to technology.
The past fifteen years have seen many new technologies: visualisation, cloud, mobile devices and so on. But, every kinodb application is defined within a metadata model.
This approach separates the application definition from its technical implementation.
The metadata model contains the entirety of the application's definition, but none of the technology required to turn that definition into a running application. This means that incremental releases of the kinodb platform provide all of the updates required to keep every application fully aligned with changing technologies, standards and devices.
The application only needs to change when business needs dictate it.
Regardless of the fact that databases have evolved, web standards have changed, cloud hosting is mainstream, entirely new classes of mobile devices now exist, and the security landscape is very different, every kinodb application is completely up to date.
Our customers' applications just keep on running; a kinodb application is the opposite of legacy.
kinodb can provide the quickest and most cost-effective means of consolidating and updating a legacy estate.
Many organisations struggle with legacy systems that constrain what the business can do, both technically and functionally.
Keeping these applications operational consumes a significant proportion of the IT department's time and resource.
kinodb offers a simple way of replacing or consolidating old applications and bringing them up to date technologically so they will never fall into this trap again.
Previous exercises of legacy replacement have enabled the consolidation of a variety of technologies (legacy database applications, spreadsheets, CMS repositories etc.) into a single, coherent system. This removes technological debt, provides a consistent view of data previously held in multiple repositories, and provides a legacy-proof platform to support ongoing requirements.
Request a demonstration to see how easily kinodb could replace your legacy application(s) by clicking the button below:
With many of our clients we can have a PoC (Proof of Concept) application up and running in just a couple of weeks. This approach allows your business process owners to feedback iteratively so should your requirements change, the application will adapt.
However, if you prefer, we can train your in-house development teams to build your applications.
