Legacy systems: legacy or ticking time bomb?

Exploding costs, lack of compliance, data silos or security leaks. Legacy systems that have grown over the years are now a headache for many reasons. Even more serious is the migration of long-standing IT specialists from the company's own ranks.

As a result, core competence in dealing with technology disappears from the company forever. Through many years of cooperation with various customers, abat knows the reasons - and can also support you with the right service for your requirements.


Maintaining your system is time-consuming and the costs are sometimes immense. At the same time, an upgrade or a complete transformation seems to be much more expensive - and supposedly out of proportion.

The abat way:

Talk to our experts without obligation and free of charge. Based on an in-depth analysis, we create the basis for financially viable decisions.


Change requires courage. If this courage relates to the conversion of an entire system in the company, doubts and resistance arise from within the company's own ranks.

The abat way:

Believing means not knowing. Create facts and convincing arguments with us - for a process that involves everyone in the company.


Legacy systems sometimes contain know-how from days long gone. Programming languages, tricks of the trade and tricks of the trade are lost, especially when former employees leave. If the heart of your company can neither be maintained nor optimized as a result, a standstill is imminent.

The abat way:

Do you want to secure the inventory? Our IT specialists know the necessary programming languages. Would you like to further develop the system? abat has the right products for your IT landscape. Are you ready for a change? Talk to us about the possibilities.

Arrange an appointment with us today. Together, we will get a picture of your existing system landscape and design a plan for keeping your systems up and running. Our experts will also provide you with meaningful insights into the possibilities for transforming your systems and requirements.

With our many years of expertise in IT solutions, for example in discrete manufacturing for customers such as Mercedes-Benz or nobilia, we are also happy to take the step into the future with your company: together on the abat path.

Our SMARTsolution



I like working at abat because there is a very pleasant, appreciative working atmosphere here with a lot of freedom. There is a lot of trust, so you also have the freedom to try out something new - but if it doesn't work out, there is also the necessary support. That's how I've learned so much! In addition, if you have problems while working in the home office, you can often quickly find colleagues who are happy to help you out via teams.
