Astadia is the market leading mainframe modernization consulting, technology and systems integration boutique. A worldwide tech-enabled consulting firm, we specialize in moving IBM and Unisys mainframe applications and databases to distributed and cloud platforms. Completing our first mainframe migration project in 1994, Astadia has successfully migrated more than 300 customers from the mainframe to the cloud or distributed platform of their choosing.
In March 2021, Astadia announced the acquisition of Anubex, the market leader in refactoring, to complement Astadia’s replatforming capabilities. This acquisition brings industry leading products to the Astadia solution set to automate the refactoring and testing of legacy systems. The development of these products started well over 20 years ago, and today includes coverage for legacy technologies such as COBOL, Assembler, IDMS and Natural ADABAS that can be migrated to, among others, Java or C# in combination with all the leading SQL-databases. The resulting applications are ready for deployment in the target platform of choice.
The possibility to offer these solutions through The Astadia FastTrack Factory model ensures a successful project for both clients and partners alike. The Factory is a collection of tools, process and technology to accelerate and standardize a successful mainframe migration project. The platform allows both partners and clients to benefit from the extensive experience and industry leading software products that Astadia offers worldwide.
The benefits clients and partners realize from leveraging the Astadia FastTrack Factory include:

In this article, we'll discuss refactoring and how it fits into the larger picture of mainframe modernization.
See how Astadia’s FastTrack Factory can reduce the duration of a typical migration project by as much as 90%.
Everybody agrees that automation is key to mainframe modernization regardless of the selected transformation approach, particularly in replatforming or refactoring projects. Not everybody, however, has the vision to automate the journey all the way.
As technology advances, mainframe organizations are increasingly pressed to transition to more modern platforms. Here are some of the most common misconceptions that hinder their mainframe modernization journey.
The cost of not modernizing mainframe systems is generally far greater than the time, effort, and money required to make the transition. Here's why.
As mainframes host mission-critical applications, it's essential to ensure that the modernization process is accurate and causes minimal disruption to business operations. This is where automated migration and testing tools come in.
