Benefits of Modernizing Legacy Software Systems

Key Business Reasons to Modernize Your Legacy Software Systems

Avoid the Pitfalls of Using Old Systems That Cost Your Team Time and Efficiency.

Odds are, you’re running a set of outdated legacy software systems that are no longer meeting the needs of your business. This scenario is all too common today – businesses across the world are moving rapidly to barely keep up with trends in mobility, security, and cloud infrastructure.

Many systems run on older technologies that have proven their value yet are complex, expensive and difficult to maintain, and often too rigid to help you accelerate time-to-market, improve customer service and expand into new markets. QAT Global can help you capitalize on your existing technology investments by retrofitting them with newer, high-performing technology that will increase older systems’ power, efficiency, and effectiveness or re-engineering them.

Increase organizational flexibility, reduce business costs, and fuel growth by modernizing and migrating legacy systems, architectures and processes.

Use Cases

  • Do you need to rapidly improve your existing applications to meet new business demands that your organization faces?
  • Unsure of the long-term capability to take your existing software and scale it for higher usage and more traffic?
  • Have you faced a previous technology outage that has caused financial and operational setbacks because of your existing applications?
  • Not sure how to measure your existing applications’ Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and whether re-development is a potential option?

Additional Benefits of Updating Legacy Software Systems

  • Move from a language that is hard to support to one that is simple and well-supported with development tools.
  • Gain access to a larger pool of potential staff; young developers are reluctant to learn “legacy” languages, and the number of experienced developers is quickly diminishing as the baby boomer generation retires.
  • Bug fixing.
  • New features implementation.
  • Improve system performance.
  • Meet user expectations.
  • Improve integration options with other IT systems.
  • Utilize less expensive, new hardware.

  • Each legacy system is unique. Over the lifetime of software systems, administrators often create additions, enhancements and custom tools that enhance the system but also add to the complexity.

The Path to Modernization Success

Your legacy software handles the heavy lifting for your enterprise and was likely built over a long period of time. Today, it’s not logical to think you can rebuild a system that took 10-20 years in just 6 to 24 months. That’s why choosing application modernization services may be the smarter move.
