'Lease of Life' (www.leaseoflife.info) is a bundle of new System i hardware, software and consulting services that makes it possible to modernise an entire legacy hardware and software application environment in a single step. In Asia Pacific, the Lease of Life initiative is offered through five participating partners: The Artis Group, Computer Merchants and Sundata, all three in Australia, Avnet Solutions in Malaysia and Avnet Technology Solutions in Singapore. Or companies can contact LANSA offices in Sydney or Singapore directly.

Paul Gandell, LANSA's general manager for the Asia Pacific region, said, ''We encounter many System i shops running OS/400 or i5/OS that are dependent on so-called green screen applications. The contribution of these legacy assets to daily operations is significant, but they also inhibit change and restrict growth.”

“Many of these companies are in limbo about how to move forward, considering options that range from cosmetic revamping of their existing solution at one end, to a packaged solution or total redevelopment at the other, the later course often involving a possible change of hardware platform."

“Decision-makers need to reduce the perceived risk of upgrading such critical systems, so we formed a consortium with leading System i vendors to engender their confidence. By bundling the latest value-for-money System i servers with the unique LANSA Rapid Application Modernization Process (RAMP), all delivered through the trusted IBM Business Partner network, we have created the most compelling path to complete System i modernisation.''

LANSA and Avnet have pooled their System i expertise to develop an ROI Calculator that helps managers to determine which modernisation approach offers the best return and shortest pay-back period. The ROI Calculator is an Excel spreadsheet that identifies the costs and prospective savings from a modernisation project. The default data model, culled from past projects, can be tweaked to visualise the impact of various options: do nothing, modernise with RAMP, or replace the legacy system. The ROI Calculator is accompanied by an 8-minute video that succinctly explains the ROI of a modernisation project to a non-technical, senior executive audience.
