It’s not a matter of “if,” but rather a matter of “when” to modernize your applications.

Your Challenge

  • A clear approach to application modernization is necessary. Most organizations lack a clear strategy for retiring legacy applications and continue to spend most of their budgets on just keeping the lights on (Capgemini).
  • Operational costs are out of control. 80% of the IT budget is spent on support of existing complex systems (ciodive).
  • Legacy applications are on the rise. 48% of organizations believe there are more applications than the business requires (Capgemini).

Our Solution

  • Conduct your cost-benefit analysis for modernization feasibility. Gather a holistic view of your current application landscape to determine if a modernization of our applications is worthwhile for your organization.
  • Determine your modernization requirements. Follow Info-Tech’s approach to understanding your criteria and method for modernization. This evaluation will include assessing your current technical capabilities, available resourcing, and what processes/tools can be leveraged.
  • Determine your modernization process. Our program walks you through the process of determining how to approach your modernization initiative based on your needs. Our approach will help identify if a vendor will be needed, an in-house modernization effort, or a hybrid approach.
