Mainframe Maintenance and Audit

Maintaining and supporting legacy systems to match user needs is a challenge to most CIOs today. Legacy applications, when initially written, were custom-made to suit the hardware & software environments available that time, but over a period of time, much programming, debugging efforts and more business logic have gone into them. We help you in effectively maintaining these applications protecting your investments and keeping in step with the advancement of technology.

We have a strong history of managing and future-proofing mission-critical applications for our clients.

With the current open system architecture and technology improvements, it has become very important to conduct periodic mainframe data security audits at a much higher level than standard audits utilizing IBM audit tools. We have standard tools and processes and proven experience in conducting “vulnerability assessment” of mainframe system, applications and networks.

    The key features include

  • Back office analysis/debugging/audit tools & processes
  • Minimum interruption to the production system
  • Usage of current technology to accomplish much of these work on PCs
  • Offshore dedicated team & helpdesk, who work on the remote server using high speed secure VPN connectivity (shared resources)
  • Onsite-Offshore model minimizing cost for the client

    Our services include

  • Application Maintenance
  • Application Support & Help Desk
  • Reverse Engineering & Documentation
  • Code Review / Regression Testing
  • Data Security Audit (Vulnerability Assessment)
