Better today than tomorrow.

  • Changing your legacy systems takes too long and will hinder your company’s development.
  • Dwindling knowledge and insufficient documentation put the future of your system at risk.
  • The technology stacks you’ve used up to now are expiring, have been decommissioned by the manufacturer or cause huge maintenance costs.

Manufacturer-independent consulting and efficient implementation.

Are you unsure about which path is the right one for your legacy environment? We are not tied to any manufacturer and can therefore provide completely impartial advice. The result is a well-founded transformation strategy, precisely tailored to your goals and conditions, based on our experience of many hundreds of projects.

And even better: we don’t just come up with clever solutions; we also implement them with and for you. From production – into production.

eXplain – Train the Boss: your way out of the legacy dilemma.

When you’re making decisions about modernizing, transforming or replacing critical core systems, gut instinct and a smattering of knowledge can be dangerous accomplices. As a decision-maker you have to know what you’re doing because in the end, the success or failure of a project has a significant influence on your career.
Our compact Train the Boss training boosts your decision-making skills, teaches you how to communicate effectively and respectfully with your experts, and helps you identify risks and pitfalls before it’s too late.
