English term or phrase:Legacy support
The software solutions used to connect applications with legacy systems are not unlike the kits that world travelers carry in their briefcases. Just as the right sort of dongle allows an American visitor in Greece to plug a laptop power cord into the wall, a specialized application adapter allows one system to pull data from another.
And just as each country seems to have its own standard for power outlets, each legacy system requires its own adapter. For years, EAI vendors emphasized their portfolios of legacy application adapters as key differentiators -- and as sources of revenue.
