Abstract:

Organizations that own or use software assets require a structured and validated approach for making decisions on how to update, migrate or reengineer their legacy assets. A model has recently been developed to understand technical transformations at different levels of abstraction. However, this model, which focuses on technical issues, is not yet accessible for decision makers. This report outlines the foundation of a structured and coherent method, based on the horseshoe model, that will help practitioners make appropriate reengineering choices.
