What is application modernisation?

Organisations usually retain legacy apps because they fulfil at least one key function - but you wouldn’t want employees driving cars that keep breaking down or allow your premises to fall into disrepair. So why let an outdated app threaten your business?

Application modernisation refers to overhauling old tech, often piece by piece. That creates a cutting-edge solution for current needs, and safeguards innovation by allowing for fast, safe and frequent updates further down the track.

Why modernise?

The times are ever-changing – why not your organisation? Ploughing on with legacy apps raises big risks: apps superseded by advances in technology can restrict innovation, frustrate customers and threaten revenue.

Modernising legacy apps will generate long-term - potentially indefinite - benefits, not to mention quick wins. That’s particularly so if you opt for a cloud-native solution (modern apps are designed for the cloud, legacy apps are tricky to move and can be expensive to run once there).

In the application modernisation guide above, we explore several key reasons businesses should modernise, alongside the key opportunities this provides. 

Strategies to modernise

Various cloud-focused app modernisation solutions each have different purposes, risks and costs. These strategies include rehosting, replatforming, refactoring, rearchitecting, rebuilding, and replacing – but before you can decide which is right for you, you need to know everything about your existing system.

That’s not just how it works for customers, but how it works for you. How was it created? What tech is used to maintain it? How does it integrate with other platforms? Who are your customers and why do they use it? What works well? What needs ditching or fixing?
