RAMP is a staged process used to deliver a modernized version of your existing applications:
Stage 1: Creation of a Modernization Framework - You create the aesthetics and behavior of your modernized application.
Stage 2: Reanimation and Initial Enrichment - Existing 5250 screens are automatically styled to match the look-and-feel of the prototype and possess all the normal properties of the Microsoft Outlook-style interface.
Stage 3: Ongoing Re-engineering and Enrichment - You use LANSA 2005’s development capabilities to further extend and replace portions of the legacy application - moving your old 5250-based applications into a modern repository-based development environment.
Companies rewriting their core systems without RAMP might be using outdated systems while they develop the new system. Developers integrate the new, complete application with their old system, only to throw this work away as more of the applications are completed. When the implementation is complete, the requirements have changed and the system is showing its age. RAMP’s approach to system replacement lowers risk and speeds up delivery time.
When the pressure is on to modernize a legacy system, it can be tempting to reach for the quick solution — refacing. But an application that looks better is not the same as one that works better. In designing RAMP, LANSA recognized the limitations of existing refacing tools and the difficulty of justifying a replacement project.
RAMP is the first modernization process to reface legacy applications while simultaneously preparing them for future redevelopment. RAMP enables existing applications to be redeployed with a rich graphical user interface and enhanced navigation in weeks rather than months or years — with no change to the IBM iSeries® server logic.
In addition, by moving iSeries applications into a LANSA Application Framework, the full power of the LANSA development environment is available to deliver any kind of enhancement or addition.
