Technology advances so quickly it's easy to overlook the continuing use of technology solutions that are based on older applications that still perform important functions for the business. For example, most financial companies have been in no rush to update legacy applications written in COBOL. Extending the life of those applications is possible without code changes or expensive migrations.
Within the U.S. government, critical applications often reside on legacy hardware that is quickly approaching end-of-life status.
See how ABB Minden extended the lifespan of its VAX systems at its power plant using Charon-VAX VAX emulation.
The 20-year-old VAX and Alpha emulators running Wellington City Council's rate payments service were reaching end of life and needed a low-cost upgrade.
Their AlphaServers proving unstable and breaking down during maintenance, Victorias Milling Company consulted Stromasys to find a cost-effective solution.
Charon-AXP virtual Alpha removed the threat of downtime for Shri Dinesh Mill's IT Department, vital to maintain production control and data processing.
