Legacy modernization

Unlock the future with Luxoft - we have 100% success rate for mainframe modernization projects



Why you need to modernize

Your mainframe is a lumbering beast you ignore at your peril.


Overly complex and expensive to run, the mainframe sits at the center of the technology landscape for many organizations like yours. Of course, if it were possible to replace or fix your legacy system relatively easily, without too much effort and risk, you’d have done it already.


However, delaying the inevitable is a risky business — the consequences can be far reaching — and the longer you leave it, the riskier it is.


Working with Luxoft to modernize your legacy technology will help you cut costs, reduce risk and ease your mind. And the advanced open-source technologies, comprehensive test coverage and continuous integration our experts utilize and establish, will help future-proof your platform.

Why Luxoft

Clients engage Luxoft when they need to migrate a complex, business-critical system, and keep risk to a minimum. After all, we’ve been modernizing and migrating mainframes for over 20 years now, and our top-class engineers are fluent in both legacy and modern technologies including cloud, QA and DevOps.

That said, modernizing mainframes is never as simple as some might expect. Every now and then, suppliers propose a 6-month turnkey migration which, in our experience, rarely works. The cold, hard fact is, that 77% of organizations have failed to complete at least one modernization program.

Luxoft has helped the world's largest enterprises design and successfully complete custom/hybrid migrations where other, stock approaches have failed. Treating each modernization case as unique plays a big part in our engineers’ 100% success rate.
