Migration from existing environments to open source without the growing pains


1Tech provides services to support all forms of legacy, commercial solution or home grown code migration, data conversion, transformation, renewal and portability. We understand there is business value in your legacy systems and one of your best strategic options is to preserve this valuable asset by gradually migrating, rapidly converting and/or porting this code to open source platforms.


Many organisations are quickly realising that their proprietary applications or in-house solutions cannot scale with their evolving business requirements, and many are considering open source alternatives. The process of moving from an entrenched application to a new open source solution can be daunting in terms of expense, down-time, complexity, and lack of technical expertise.


We provide services to migrate existing applications to the power and flexibility of open source applications. As part of this renewal process, we can add GUI interfaces, completely web enable, switch from flat files to XML and SQL technology and more. 1Tech provides these legacy renewal services faster, more accurately, and at less cost because we automate the whole process.


1Tech helps clients evaluate modernisation strategies, and understand their strengths and weaknesses such as:


  • Replacement of applications with packages
  • Redevelopment of the applications, retaining core business function while applying modern technologies
  • Transformation of applications, offering an evolutionary future proofing approach
  • Addresses the problems of obsolescence and the exploitation of new technologies


Whatever approach is adopted, separation from the existing system can be problematic. You will need a strategy that will terminate dependence on the application systems that currently exist. You will also need to be partnered with an experienced service vendor that you can depend on with the knowledge and experience of having migrated from legacy systems to open source applications.
