LEGACY MODERNIZATION

Application Portfolio Management

Legacy Modernization Roadmap Service

The creation of a Legacy Modernization Roadmap is extremely important. It is typically the next step after completing an application portfolio management (APM) project and an application and database portfolio assessment. Once all IT assets have been identified and graded, you will have a prioritized list of where the greatest value exists before initiating a Legacy Modernization project.

A Legacy Roadmap will also help guide your activities and investments in current and future IT asset management. The design process will address many questions, including the risk and return for each item on the Roadmap. As always, tradeoffs will become apparent and decisions will be difficult.

  • Identify and prioritize all applications and databases in your portfolio
  • Map all interdependencies between applications and databases
  • Identify the costs and usage patterns of all applications and databases
  • Propose multiple possible scenarios for a sequence of project consideration
  • Finalize your Roadmap in detail, along with a timeline for the next steps

 

The Legacy Modernization Roadmap Process

Following an APM project, our professionals will identify and catalogue your IT portfolio. Each asset will be ranked and rated by business value and cost to operate. This information, along with the usage data of each application and database, will provide you with great insight into the best opportunities to upgrade each asset. The result will be a clear Roadmap for the future.

  • Work with you to gather detailed technical data about your environment
  • Develop a project plan, including the scope of the Legacy Modernization and management of security-related issues
  • Assign staff from both companies to manage the project
  • Set processes, timelines and deliverables
  • Deliver a preliminary package to help you prepare for the project
  • Meet with you on a regular basis to discuss the project status
  • Present final project results to you
  • Project concludes and we discuss next steps
