Strypes becomes implementation partner of TNO-ESI
January 19, 2024
Strypes, a leading software company, part of ICT Group and TNO-ESI have announced a pivotal partnership to support scaling-up of the adoption and impact of the innovative systems engineering methodologies of TNO-ESI, starting with their legacy code migration methodologies in the high tech industry sector. This strategic alliance, formalized in Eindhoven, marks a significant step in addressing the complex challenges of legacy systems in the technology industry.
Together with national and international industry and academic partners, ESI performs research on innovative systems engineering methodologies and on embedding these in the high tech industry to help them manage the complexity of their systems. Next to the research programs, TNO-ESI supports the high tech industry with training programs for systems engineers and systems architects.
TNO-ESI has established itself as a frontrunner in tackling the intricacies of legacy code. The approach (the “Renaissance” methodology) incorporates semi-automated methods to extract models from legacy code, focusing on enhancing understanding and evolving legacy software. ESI’s methodologies address crucial aspects like functionality, structure and code evolvability, essential for high-tech companies dealing with massive software systems.
About ESI's expertise in legacy code migration
To scale-up the adoption and impact of the methodologies and tools, TNO-ESI is developing a network of implementation partners. These partners will train their engineers for TNO-ESI’s methodologies and tools. Trained engineers will receive a Certificate of Proficiency of TNO-ESI (practitioner or expert level). TNO-ESI is happy that Strypes will be their second implementation partner, giving a broader range of industry access to their methodologies and tools.
TNO-ESI is looking forward to exploring options to extend partnership with Strypes beyond the Renaissance methodology, with one or more of the other systems and software engineering methodologies developed by TNO-ESI and industry and academic partners.
