Abstract: In many businesses, like banking, insurance and in particular aerospace, the life-cycle of information systems lasts for 5 to 20 years. New scalability, performance requirements and targeted platforms make it necessary to modernize current legacy systems. In this article we briefly present a concrete example of a platform migration problem according to the ADM approach. We particularly concentrate on a model abstraction during PSM-to-PIM transformation relying on UML profiles. Finally, we discuss the applicability of our method and the lessons learned.

Keywords: UML, ADM, PIM, PSM, Model Mining, PIM abstraction., Reverse-engineering.
