Synchrony Systems Announces Microservices Extraction Capabilities for Rapid Migration of In-House Legacy Application Functionality

Greenwich, CT (April 6, 2020) – Synchrony Systems, Inc., a leader in legacy application modernizations, today announced new microservices extraction capabilities of their Modernization Lifecycle Platform (MLP). The underlying source code migration and upgrade technology identifies and extracts full execution paths of critical business functions and automatically migrates them to the desired target platform as microservices suitable to be deployed to the cloud and to platforms such as Kubernetes.

The typical modernization process of monolithic in-house applications is to upgrade the entire application before the smallest bit of functionality can be run on the target platform. Traditionally, application modernizations have been an all-or-nothing proposition.

“Thanks to the ingenuity of our lab, we’ve added a powerful capability to our source code transformation engine that dramatically reduces the cost and time that it takes to produce a working system in order to deliver some of the application’s business-critical functionality,” said Slavik Zorin, CEO of Synchrony Systems. “No longer is it necessary to modernize the entire application. Instead, it is now possible to accurately extract narrow, vertical execution paths of critical business-functions and migrate them to a modern, cloud-ready, target platform. This gives businesses the ability to rapidly modernize only the code that matters and address urgent business needs today.”

Microservices extraction also has the ability to more accurately identify candidate “dead” code that can be removed altogether. This visibility helps IT and software engineering professionals reduce technical debt and total cost of ownership by deprecating functionality that no longer matters, and therefore, should not be modernized.

“CIOs who have managed migration projects know that short-term quick fixes create long-term technical debt,” stated Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, an analyst and advisory firm helping business executives and IT leaders untangle the technologies and practices behind digital transformation. “The microservices extraction capabilities in Synchrony Systems’ Modernization Lifecycle Platform not only shortens the time to value, but they can actually decrease technical debt as well as the long-term total cost of ownership of modernized systems.”

“This is a game changer for institutional companies like banking or insurance where in-house applications are preventing them from actualizing their digital transformation or engagement initiatives,” added Zorin. “Companies are now able to migrate key business functions to a target platform in only few months, not years, while preserving 100% functional equivalence and delivering in the process a modern target architecture.”
