What does this mean for you? With Alphaworks at the helm of your ADM efforts, you can focus on core business issues instead of on IT project minutia. Alphaworks will conduct your ADM projects with an eye on results: cost containment, faster time-to-value, and minimized risk.

Alphaworks Custom Development

For Alphaworks, application development is not about the short-term. It’s about the application lifecycle, business results, and enduring value.  We employ model-driven and service-oriented architectures to create reusable components, driving down the total cost of application development.  We incorporate the interaction of rules, services, and flows to ensure that your application addresses your business needs and technical requirements, while supporting your long-term strategies.

This attention to well-planned, quality application development reduces future resource requirements and simplifies configuration management and performance, and is essential for integrating new and emerging technologies for competitive advantage.

The result? Total cost-of-ownership reductions of 15% - 30% for many of our clients.

Alphaworks Legacy Modernization and Enhancement

Transforming established applications to a more modern architecture or language is a cost-effective way to maximize your IT investment.  But today’s marketplace often demands bigger, better, and faster applications, which can make reuse a challenge.

Alphaworks can help you bridge the architectural gap between legacy and cutting edge technologies by extending, wrapping, or replacing existing applications. We can help you understand the benefits and risks of each option, and select the best alternative for your needs.

We have helped countless clients modernize their applications by extracting business rules as part of a migration plan, for example, or by performing web and component integration to increase data visibility.  Whatever your legacy migration need, we’ll help find the best solution for you.
