What to do about legacy applications? Modernize or migrate? Doing nothing really isn't an option.

I didn't want to write a part 2 of "Finding the New Breed of RPG Programmers." Think of this as an addendum. I say this because I'm not much of a developer. When I talk about development, it's at more of a strategic level. I won't comment on what tool to use versus another tool with regard to programming techniques because I just don't live in that world anymore, and my ignorance will show. When talking about development, my role is essentially to put the right resources on the required tasks and try to make it all work on time and on budget. I get to have the good-spirited (mostly) arguments with business unit directors and massage the user expectations. In the end, I'm an administrator at heart. I like making things go by loading/configuring, not coding, the former takes much less time and satisfies my short attention span.
