  • That’s a wrap: A cost-effective alternative to replacing your legacy system (Part II)

    By 4Point

    To continue discussing the Adobe AEM wrapper let's take a "technology view" on the problem.

    The AEM wrapper approach involves three elements:

    • An AEM Forms or AEM Sites user interface, which supports desktop, tablet and mobile devices
    • An AEM web service-based middleware layer that serves data as well as business rules
    • An application programming interface (API) that allows the legacy system to communicate with the Web using TCP/IP





    A fundamental part of the process is the creation of a middleware layer to serve both data and business rules. This allows developers to leverage the exposed capability when building out the new user experience.




    The AEM wrapper is a scalable architecture that allows you to further extend your legacy system by incorporating additional business functions.  As more data and business logic is exposed from the legacy system, it’s possible to add features such as integration with other enterprise systems and automated workflow orchestration. The approach can also be scaled to include foundational features such as security, performance enhancements and an integrated user experience based on AEM Sites.




    Maximize your investment


    With an AEM wrapper, you can leverage the Web and other new technologies without sacrificing the IT infrastructure you’ve built and refined over the years. You’re able to provide high-impact enhancements, while keeping risks and costs low. Going forward, you will appreciate how easily next-generation applications can be integrated with this stable, efficient, rejuvenated legacy system.
