The business value of legacy modernization

Legacy applications are a significant business problem for organizations due to their:

The average company spends 60-85 per cent of its IT budget maintaining legacy applications and infrastructure. Organizations are therefore under pressure to move to new technologies and architectures and thereby reduce costs. The solution: IT system modernization.

IT modernization reduces costs by optimizing business processes, automating manual processes and reducing the need to extend or modify applications through the use of SOA components. It also helps align IT infrastructure with the organization’s ever shifting business strategies.

Here are some examples of how our clients have transformed into agile enterprises with legacy IT system modernization.
