Web Migration - A Survey Considering the SME Perspective
Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering - Volume 1: ENASE
Legacy systems are business-critical and contain valuable knowledge gathered over years of development. Many of these systems are still non-web desktop applications. Companies are aware of the advantages of web applications. However, Web Migration (WM), i.e. transforming legacy systems into web applications, is still a challenge, in particular for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). A large body of research exists in this field, but the specifics of SMEs have been overseen so far. This survey provides an overview on existing WM approaches with a dedicated focus on the SME perspective. The systematic mapping study analyses 122 primary studies and tools, identifies four major research focuses, reports on common methods and techniques and the consideration of SMEs. We then outline resulting research issues and future research directions.
