Israel’s OpenLegacy Helps Businesses Modernize

"We have basically been able to help those companies modernize and integrate very quickly, and expose their legacy systems to Web, mobile, and cloud."


New Israeli company OpenLegacy has what it calls a disruptive approach to legacy modernization and application integration by focusing on business needs instead of on replacing existing solutions.

The company asserts that it believes in building on the value of legacy systems rather than rushing to replace them. OpenLegacy boasts that its comprehensive, end-to-end integration platform unlocks the application services and information in mainframes, AS/400 and databases, automatically transforming them into mobile, web and cloud applications. This approach maintains the strength, reliability, and security of the existing systems while extending them with agile API technology.

OpenLegacy is the world’s first and only light-weight, non-intrusive solution for automated legacy modernization and enterprise application integration. With its standards-based, open-source platform, OpenLegacy enables enterprises to rapidly extend legacy systems to mobile, web and cloud applications; delivering risk-free, high-impact results that solve immediate business needs.

The company says that its standard tools rapidly extract the services and information from within legacy systems into an editable format that puts the power of integration into the enterprises’ hands without the expensive handcuffs of vendor lock in. Once a business process is exposed – which can be done in minutes – the output can automatically be transformed into stand-alone mobile, web, and cloud applications; and connected with other solutions. Most importantly, no changes are required to the legacy system in order for OpenLegacy to work – the process is risk-free.

The company’s CEO and co-founder, Romi Stein, once worked for IBM. He told IT Jungle that OpenLegacy is , “not a typical startup in the sense that we have been developing an open source product for some time.”

“We gained multiple customers, ” he said, “across multiple industries ranging from governmental, like the Israeli Airport Authority, to healthcare, HMOs, manufacturing, and retail. We have basically been able to help those companies modernize and integrate very quickly, and expose their legacy systems to Web, mobile, and cloud.”

“We have the ability to auto-analyze and understand the different connections between the screens, ” Stein says. “We have a learning engine, based on an open source learning engine, that today analyzes out of the box around 70 to 80 percent of customer’s applications. We’re able, in a very fast manner, to generate a full-blown Web and mobile application for that AS/400 backend process.”
