YOU HAVE TECHNICAL DEBT. YOU NEED APPLICATION MODERNIZATION.
WHAT IS APPLICATION MODERNIZATION?
In an IT environment where writing down technical debt is paramount, application modernization is a smart strategy. You can extend the life of business applications and rebuild the IT infrastructure in small batches, over time.
Put simply, application modernization is the redevelopment of an existing software application into a modern architecture so the business can continue to use and get value from the app. The transformation extends the value of existing software applications and data while allowing data reuse and improving user experience.
Once an app lives within the organization long enough, it becomes critical. But it also hinders efficiency and growth in ways that go undetected—until they become undeniably obvious.
At some point, IT also has problems maintaining the application, after years of getting by with limited budget and unlimited demand for new functionality.
Now you start racking up technical debt: complexities and resulting inefficiencies that result from poor software because of budget or time constraints.
THE ANTI-RIP-AND-REPLACE STRATEGY
At some point, the code has to be rewritten in a new architecture and language. This is not the same as tearing out software and replacing it with something new.
It’s about renovating the IT architecture from the inside out, rewiring the circuitry so that the application works for the modern needs of the organization and its customers.
