In an age of instant gratification where customers and end-users are impatient, it is becoming imperative for organizations to transition into the digital age with systems that deliver a seamless connected experience to all your stake holders. Users demand context-rich information instantly when it’s needed, delivered to a device of their choosing.
Our Application Modernization service address the migration of legacy applications to newer platforms, including the integration of new functionality to provide the latest functions to your business and delivering a world class modern experience to your customers and employees. Our application modernization experts will guide you through the journey at every step of the way starting from planning to implementation and support. We will help help you implement sensible ramp-ups so your operations run smoothly during the digital transformation process.
Legacy applications tend to be siloed. Older technologies make it harder to integrate and share information effectively. Modernizing legacy applications ensures the continuous delivery of the best end user experience, regardless of how technology changes over time. Modern software and platforms can adapt and change rapidly as business process and needs change to adapt to a digital world. It further mitigates the risk of loss of support from legacy technology platforms and vendors.
Conduct a detailed assessment of your application(s), functions, integrations, data flows, etc. This is the basis of formulating a business case and a roadmap for the modernization effort. Modernization options include re-platforming, re-hosting, recoding, rearchitecting, re-engineering, interoperability, replacement and retire-ment.
Select a software and infrastructure platform that’s efficient, cost-effective and delivers on your business goals for the foreseeable future. There are many options when choosing a platform, and we’ll help you pick the best one for your organization– for example the cloud is highly effective for some companies, but is not the answer to all modernization goals. We will align your business and financial goals with the platform selection.
Plan, enhance and migrate your application with minimal impact to your business and users. We do this by taking a modular and collaborative approach. Then, we create a heat map or a coupling map that identifies the application modules with the highest business impact and technical complexity. Finally, we use this map to zero-in a phased approach to migration.
Moving your applications to the cloud (cloud enabling) is a proven method of modernizing your IT infrastructure and making it available all the time. Re-engineering parts or all of your application so that it’s built-for-the-cloud (Cloud Native) while migrating gives you he added advantage of an application that is extremely reliable, scalable and uses platform services that avoids vendor lock-in.
Containerization enables an application to be packaged in consistent, lightweight ways so that they can run consistently across desktop, cloud, or on-premises
environments. It also makes the application extremely portable. This gives tremendous ﬂexibility for applications being modernized and cloud enabled.
Get data out of your siloed applications and make them available to your users where they need them. Today’s users are used to having information presented to them even before they ask for it. Think Netflix’s movie suggestions, Amazon’s accurate product placement on your home page, Facebook and LinkedIn’s friend and news suggestions. Creating a centralized data repository that can be mined for information and patterns opens up vast opportunities to your business.
Using a distributed service oriented architecture goes a long way in future prooﬁng your application. You can adapt quickly to changes by taking this approach, replacing or re-platforming only those modules that require a change. We are experts in Service Oriented Architecture, Microservices and API development and management. These together gives you extreme ﬂexibility, reliability and scalability.
Automation is the key to achieving a scalable and reliable solution. But, automation doesn’t always have to be expensive or extensive re-engineering eﬀort. While this is desirable for the best outcome, it may not be the appropriate approach. Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Service Bus, Data Lakes and Warehouses are other ways to automate and modernize your application without a complete re-engineering effort.
A great user experience across diﬀerent devices goes a long way in gaining user acceptance and customer satisfaction. To achieve this, it has to be intuitively designed and easy to use. Using cross-platform UI technologies, you can deliver a consistent experience using a single code base. This reduces development cost and the total cost of ownership.
It may not always be possible to migrate an application to modern platforms and technologies. Think of a banking application or an airline ticketing system running on a mainframe system with complex business rules that have been in place for several decades. In such cases, it may be prudent to leave the application as it is and expose it’s functionalities through secure APIs.
