All too often, IT systems act as a brake on productivity. Your business may be missing opportunities for growth because its fragile codebase can't be enhanced easily. Or your operational costs may be spiraling out of control, since you systems depend heavily on manual intervention.
Rearchitecture is simply the act of rebuilding a legacy business system in the way it should have been built, had your business known then what it knows now.
In other words, rearchitecture is software refactoring at the enterprise level.

Every business system evolves over time. Spreadsheets are migrated to transactional databases, static web pages become dynamic applications, and servers proliferate with abandon. A system is designed to fit a company's needs at a point in time, but times change.
Before you know it, the cracks are showing. Sales have overtaken system capacity. Those ad-hoc, client-driven customizations have made your source code nearly impossible to update. And a long line of staff developers have imprinted their own architectural philosophies — and bad habits — on the system.
What's worse, your system is now a mission-critical business asset. Downtime from unstable software code or poor system architecture now has a material cost reflected in your bottom line. And because the system is so brittle, your company can't exploit business opportunities that require quick, deft enhancements.
What do you do when your system can no longer support your business? When your system no longer acts as a force multiplier but as your primary bottleneck? The answer is enterprise rearchitecture.

A system that automates those manual, costly, error-ridden processes that put your business at risk. A system that enforces the integrity of your data. And Hammerbeam Software migrates you to the rearchitected system without downtime for your users or your business.
