How enterprises can accelerate legacy modernization?
Reasons To Consider Legacy Modernization
Many CIOs acknowledge the need for legacy transformation and a move towards an agile, modern system. Outdated software slows down the business to respond to changing market needs and puts them behind their competition. A lengthy update or an upgrade approach would become a bottleneck and risk to the company’s day to day operations. Today enterprises are looking for an agile and quick digital transformation approach that makes the process simple to modify and quick to adapt. They also have to address the training needs within the organization during such modernization efforts.
Few other factors include
- Better user experience
- Digitization of an offline process
- Out of support software or infrastructure systems
- Limitations in their current technology stack/product
- Enhanced features with better performance
- Data Monetization
- Innovative products/Services
- Ease of integration with other systems
Choosing the right Modernization Approach
There are many ways to transform legacy systems. Enterprises use their own strategies to achieve legacy modernization. Fully automated migration is an efficient option that uses migration guides, checklist, migration tools and code generators to convert legacy data and code to modernize platforms. It also allows enterprises to tackle legacy modernization without distracting business operations. Refactoring a legacy application reduces the potential risks and enhance IT efficiencies.
