Legacy System ModernizationEvolve existing systems
Why software modernization is a must
Your legacy software is not like a fine wine—it doesn’t get better with age. Yet customer expectations and user needs are constantly evolving. Companies with a strong modernization strategy will be much better positioned to flex to these changes, now and in the future.
Old mainframes with technical debt don’t play well with new systems, which can be a huge drag on new development. Legacy applications are also expensive to maintain: All that money you’ll spend keeping old software afloat could be much better spent on a modern, scalable software solution!
When it comes to software modernization, time is truly of the essence. The pool of developers who can support your old system grows smaller each day, while speed-to-market becomes increasingly critical. In order to keep up with competitors and digital disruptors, you need to move faster on product and feature releases. Your legacy systems will keep your teams bound to workflows that slow your business processes and hinder your agility.
Where there’s the will, we can find the way! We’ve guided organizations of all types on their modernization journeys. It’s a complex road—we’ve seen companies start and stall for a number of avoidable reasons. So don’t go it alone! Even if you can’t see them now, the modernization pitfalls you’ll avert down the line are worth committing to a partner-in-evolution today.
Want to get started on bringing your legacy software up to speed?
So many IT organizations are still devoting anywhere from 60 to 80% of their time, energy, human resources and budget to supporting legacy systems rather than developing transformative solutions.
Benefits of modernizing legacy software
When the bottleneck is the system, the system must change: Modernization speeds up product and feature releases and improves efficiency for end-users via a better UX and digitization.
Once you migrate your legacy application, you’ll be able to stop pouring money into costly mainframes and spend much less on software, hardware, and licensing.
Freeing yourself from a tightly coupled monolith enables you to respond more quickly to change and introduces new processes that make you more agile as an organization.
Adaptation to the future
A system that’s flexible, and resilient makes your business more attractive to users and customers; to clients, partners, and investors; and to new talent excited to evolve more modern tech.
