Of these, the most important aspect is to select the target technology architecture which confers all the benefits of modernization and digitization. However, before that, it is imperative to conduct a pre-analysis of existing technology on which your application is built. Compared to other technology frameworks and programming languages, Groovy on Grails offers more dynamic and modern architecture since it is standing flexible and scalable J2EE stack like Spring and Hibernate. While Grails is a web framework, Groovy is a programming language that is concise and simple. Moreover, it offers immense productivity and scalability due to its variety of next-generation features that certainly mounts reasons for its popularity and preference as the best technology architecture for migrating and re-engineering a legacy application. Here are to name a few; Groovy in itself is a dynamic and agile scripting language that integrates with the bean scripting framework. This eliminates the need to rewrite code from scratch and makes migration easier and faster. Readymade Modules & Plugins Grails comes with an amazing support of readymade plugins and modules which takes away the stress of writing and creating snippets of small functionalities. Hence, migrating less time-consuming and more efficient. Logical Structure The entire architecture of Grails is well-structured with a logical placement of templates, classes, scripts and domain classes. This enables engineers to identify, track, store the instances of the application for future reference and releases. Database Support Groovy on Grails support a variety of databases including MySql, Oracle, Postgre, RDBMS and CUBRIN. Hence, an application running on any of these databases can be easily migrated to Grails. Security Grails comes with security plugins like Spring Security and Shiro. Any application migrated to Grails can be thus secured and authenticated to reduce the possible risks of unauthorized usage and data theft. Productive Architecture Lasting Words Since Grails is based on principles of DRY, Scaffolding, Convention over Configuration, the entire architecture becomes productive to easily pick up the code and start setting up logic. This considerably reduces the headaches of the entire migration process. Considering these features, Groovy on Grails stands as the most promising option for migrating legacy applications. Enterprises opting for Grails can certainly tap the benefits of its next-generation features and can march ahead in the race of innovation and flexibility in the market and drive business growth. Whatever application an enterprise use, it is the heart of the entire business process and is an invaluable asset to the business. To increase the efficiency, responsiveness and agility of the application and reduce the performance issues, it’s imperative to migrate and upgrade it from time to time. The only thing to be taken care while migrating an application from an aging technology stack is to create a clear plan highlighting the migration strategy and choose a technology platform that offers the required reusability, flexibility and integrity with a scope to enhance business processes and sustain business growth. Opting for technology like Grails offers advanced benefits and rejuvenates application without locking up resources and time in the process due to its scalable and productive architecture which ultimately leads to increased ROI and reduced Total Costs of Ownership. Cygnet is a leading Grails development and consulting service providers. To know more about how to migrate to Grails, get in touch with our expert Grails consultant. The Futuristic Technology that beats the rest Here’s is an experience of a leading telecom giant that migrated its customer management portal from a traditional J2EE technology to Grails platform. The company was facing enormous difficulty in managing the complex layers of customer accounts and flat architecture. Migrating the portal on the Grails platform, streamlined the customer registration process and also reduced the overall load on the application server. By migrating the portal to Grails technology, the company also eliminated the configuration and integration issues which ultimately helped in managing customer accounts efficiently with a quicker turnaround. www.cygnet-infotech.com Cygnet Infotech is a CMMi Level 3, provider of IT Consulting and one of the leading Grails development and consulting service provider from the India. Cygnet offers matured global delivery model with its offices at New Jersey, USA, Cape Town, South Africa, Sydney, Australia and a state of the art development and delivery center at Ahmedabad, India. Here’s an interesting observation in this context:The Quest for Futuristic Technology Although there are plenty of technology frameworks which enterprises can select for migrating their application to; Ruby on Rails, Django and Groovy on Grails are preferred mostly on the grounds of being open source. Being opensource, these technologies offer cost-effective option for migration by reducing the overall cost of the migration and reengineering process and ultimately boost ROI. All these three technology frameworks share features like MVC architecture, convention over configuration, don’t repeat yourself principles which allows better maintenance of applications and are more flexible. However, when it comes to the best among these, Groovy on Grails ticks all the boxes of a futuristic technology. Legacy architecture does not necessarily mean mainframe applications that were built in 90’s or applications that run on COBOL or FORTRAN. Newer technologies and languages that are monolithic, inflexible and offer no scope of modification, scalability and reusability are also considered outdated. Hence, before finalizing the target technology framework for migrating application, prior analysis of existing technology architecture is necessary to catch hold of the futuristic technology that offers productivity, quicker time-to-market and drives business growth after migration. Fear of data leakage scares enterprises. Securing mobile devices is the biggest headache that most IT managers face while implementing BYOD. Read this article to get an overview on how to foolproof your mobile apps and devices against the most dangerous security breaches. Within the last couple of years, smartphones and tablets have become an integral part of several enterprises. The BYOD trend has reached a tipping point, and businesses are relying more and more on mobile devices. Says who? Well… there’s hard data backing up this claim. Just as the advent of Internet caught most enterprises napping in the 1990s, the rise of enterprise mobility is finding most organizations unequipped to face the change. Employees already comfortable with mobile devices are forcing a change. The decision to embrace BYOD, develop an internal mobile app or integrate legacy software – all have clamoring employees as the reason. A single mobile device contains lots of sensitive information – usernames, passwords, location data, app data, SSNs & more. All this information is vulnerable if any device is lost. Cloud storage can solve the problem and make it easy to recoup the data, but storing data on off-premise servers remains a risk. Encryption, SSL, Firewalls and strong access controls can save the day. A Quick Guide to Combat The 5 Commonest Enterprise Mobility Threats CIOs and IT managers are convinced that mobility will have a bigger impact on enterprise than the Internet had two decades ago. Mobile CRM apps are all set to grow by Almost 1 in 4 People use a smartphone or tablet as their primary work device BYOD will jump to become aEnterprise are planning to deploy HTML5 mobile apps 75% 67% $181 billion market by 2017 this year 500% 5 Dangerous Enterprise Mobile Security Threats And How to Neutralize Them Insecure Data Storage and Data Loss Enterprises may not want employees to access sensitive data outside the premises. But BYOD – by blurring lines between personal & business data – enables anytime, anywhere access to corporate apps and data. Containerization solves the problem by separating corporate and personal data. Location and time-based access, encryption and printing restrictions guarantee the security of enterprise data on personal devices. Unauthorized Access of Corporate Data When employees use third-party applications for business use, a significant amount of corporate data passes through a public platform and is at risk. Also, apps may be infected by malware that deliberately steal data. Setting up a private data center, building a private cloud platform, and a secure internal app store ensures that no data passes through the wrong hands. Add multi-factor authentication to this mix, and you neutralize the threat. Apps Distribution & Data Security For research departments of most enterprises, information security is vital. Forget about digital data – even if an employee manages to click pictures of critical documents or prototypes, the loss can be enormous. Through strict Mobile Device Management, you can control the different functions and features of an app or a mobile device. For high-risk areas, the IT admin can disable the camera and other functions to intensify security. Mobiles as Instruments for Espionage Most mobile apps rely on back-end services, and this entails connection with the server. Weak server-side security measures can leave apps vulnerable to hacker attacks through malicious code. Hire mobile developers capable of writing robust code that takes all server-side security considerations into account. Instead of relying on the robustness of the client-side, the developers need to test and deliver watertight apps with no loopholes. Weak Network Security Cygnet’s Enterprise Mobility and SharePoint teams collaborated to build m1-Share, an innovative application that enables users to access Microsoft SharePoint through mobile devices. As sensitive business data is accessible and editable through this app, we needed powerful security features. In addition to deploying SSL encryption and Firewall protection, our mobile security experts implemented strict time and location access controls to ensure that no unauthorized users can access the data. The IT admin also has the facility to wipe all corporate data remotely, in case the device is stolen. Enterprise mobility is a double-edged sword – it will make your employees more productive, but it will also open new avenues for people who want to steal or misuse your data. By: • focusing on rigorous mobile application testing • investing energy in setting up tight security features • getting the device and app management strategy right from the start Enterprises can make the most of smart mobiles without paying the penalty.

It’s a Security Nightmare While enterprise mobility can significantly boost productivity, it also opens up a can of worms as far as data security is concerned. Mobile security is an evolving space, and while enterprises have rock solid security on their internal IT infrastructure, many fail to address the issues raised by the advent of mobility. How dire is the situation? We say ‘VERY!’ • 81.9% Enterprises feel that BYOD is the right strategy for their business. • But 80% BYOD actions are not managed or properly monitored. • 4 out of 5 Companies admit that the number of personal devices connected to corporate networks has doubled within a year. • But 2 out of 3 Employees say that their company has not set up a BYOD policy yet. • And, 35% Employees confess storing their work passwords on their personal mobiles.
