Legacy Application Modernization

As technology changes, more and more businesses are forced to grapple with the need to modernize their legacy applications. There are many approaches to Legacy Application Modernization, including to reuse, rewrite or replace. The goal of reusing the existing application is to gain more value from proven business logic and extend its useful life, while significantly reducing unnecessary operating costs and decreasing risk.

Since there are several modernization approaches, choosing one can be a difficult task. But it’s no surprise that the preference today is migrating to the cloud, as opposed to modernizing with an on-premise, in-house solution. The many benefits of the cloud include faster deployment, lower IT overhead by offloading hardware support requirements, virtually unlimited application scalability, responsiveness for today’s mobile users, and higher utilization and resource efficiency via shared services.

Reasons to consider Legacy Application Modernization include:

  • Legacy software becomes obsolete and unable to keep up with the demands of the business and its customers
  • The ongoing business value of a legacy application does not justify the cost of maintaining it
  • Applications become increasingly resource-intensive or slow-performing
  • The number of people with the skills to maintain and operate the legacy mainframe is quickly dwindling as veterans retire and qualified replacements aren’t available
