We help our clients transition from legacy to modern platforms that have a natural place in existing business ecosystems. Using a pragmatic and holistic approach we help create a clear and well aligned system landscape.

What is application modernization?

Application modernization is an umbrella term encompassing multiple strategies, including rehost, refactor, rearchitect and rebuild of software applications and services

Software applications tend to become a risk to businesses over time. This happens for a variety of reasons, e.g. security, scalability, business criticality or functionality.
When starting a modernization project it is important to thoroughly evaluate the purpose of the application. Many times the requirements are to re-write the software in a more modern language or move its runtime to a virtual or cloud environment. When doing this, it is easy to miss many synergies related to other systems in the ecosystem.
From a business perspective it is also a good time to step back and evaluate business processes as there might be potential for modernization there as well. Therefore we try to get a good understanding of the applications purpose and reason for being before starting a modernization project.
