As Oakbrook Solutions engages in integration or system interface related projects we continue to run into the same “green screens” on client site. Although some areas have created front ends to mask the underlying technology, major changes are sometimes needed in integration or interfacing work that is done behind the scenes. The need for resources with skills around “old” technology is ever apparent but is it time for financial institutions to consider major shifts in technology platforms?
We all know the ROI on the change could be difficult to justify but the benefits of the move could be realized over time. As the US workforce ages, so does our clients ability to replace “hands-on” experience. As a niche consulting firm, Oakbrook Solutions understands the value of this type of knowledge and experience. That said, migrating to new technology can be accomplished with the right leadership, focus, and execution.
Is it time to begin the migration?
