  • Legacy Applications Migration

    RSC is the information executive's secret weapon when a legacy application simply has to be replaced. We have migrated dozens of legacy applications, often under severe time pressure.

    Is your system so old that no one remembers who built it? Lost the source code? Is it so out of date that it is impossible to find programming talent who can work with it? These are all problems that RSC can overcome.

    Along the way we will be sure your new system steps forward in a way that is congruent with how your organization works. Your new system will conform to modern standards and software engineering principles and will be implemented in a way that minimizes disruption to your business.
