pinpointing why legacy software has become exactly that – “legacy,” fraught with clunky interfaces, lacking integration, requiring workarounds for what should be simple tasks – isn't always easy. Sometimes, IT development went wrong. Other times, software simply hasn't kept up with the times or organizational expansion, and has outlived its usefulness. LegacyX works with you to identify what you need your software to be and how to keep what works while improving what doesn't. Together, we'll identify how LegacyX can craft an ideal solution, keeping you informed throughout the entire process. That's why our clients trust LegacyX, and we think you will too.


Walt Disney Imagineering

In less than a year’s time, LegacyX completed a multi-phase IT development project involving Walt Disney Imagineering’s Title Block and Bill of Materials Applications. We analyzed an existing legacy application that had evolved into a business critical system for Disney, discovering that the legacy code had become outdated and insufficient for their needs. LegacyX worked closely with the subject matter experts at Walt Disney Imagineering to build a new application, leveraging modern technology and software practices. Best of all, we did it for less than the cost of making modifications to existing legacy code.

Operating Engineers Local 955

Since 2011, LegacyX has been providing business analysis, architecture, design, and development services for a new software system used by the largest trade union in Alberta, Operating Engineers Local 955, with over 12,000 active members. They required a new line-of-business application for their Edmonton head office; the entire solution was engineered from the ground up. In Spring 2013, LegacyX was named the prime contractor for this project, dubbed “OeSystem,” and has been delivering regular releases adding new functionality each release.

Comcast

Comcast approached LegacyX with a challenge: they needed a suite of tools to run in tandem with AutoCAD Map, tools what would perform a variety of functions. This tool suite would run within AutoCAD Map. Its requirements:

  • Increase drafting performance by eliminating all the manual steps.
  • Create and set layers to match standards.
  • Facilitate the drafting of plant by setting object snaps and even snapping blocks to lines and rotating/trimming lines.
  • Tracing tools ensuring accurate physical network connectivity.
  • Enforce the maximum number of inputs of all equipment.
  • Quality assurance tools allowing various levels of the design lifecycle to be tested. This ensured that standards were matched, the appropriate information was entered into attribute data and that network connectivity was valid.

The final release of Comcast's requested tool suite added real time HFC signal design and power level calculations. This system is still in use today, and was even used as a model by Autodesk.
