Futureproofing & Modernization

Technology evolves at a furious pace. Yet, businesses are expected to build and deploy systems that will last five, ten, or even more years. These systems are major investments, and their owners can’t afford to throw them away and start over every three years when a new technology emerges. Ab Initio helps solve this problem because our platform rides on top of these technology waves, protecting our users from the constant undertow.

If you built your application with Ab Initio a decade ago, it will still be fully functional with no changes on today’s latest technology — cloud-based containers. And if you build your application today with Ab Initio, in all likelihood it will still be fully functional a decade from now with whatever replaces cloud technology. That’s because Ab Initio is futureproofed.

Ab Initio also provides automatic translators from a variety of legacy technologies into Ab Initio. These applications can be moved with minimal changes, and they can take advantage of Ab Initio’s agility, scalability, robustness, and portability.

Modernize your legacy applications and ensure long-term investment protection on all supported Ab Initio platforms.

Modernize your existing applications and ensure long-term investment protection
