Architecture-Driven Modernisation Task Force


Our Mission Statement

Create specifications and promote industry consensus on modernization of existing applications.

What are Existing Applications?

Existing application systems are defined as any production-enabled software, regardless of the platform it runs on, language it is written in, or length of time it has been in production. Existing application has entered the maintenance and evolution mode.
