What is Application Modernisation and Remediation?

Today, every company is a technology company, using software applications to innovate and differentiate in themselves in the global market.

In this software-driven world, enterprises need to innovate and differentiate from their competitors at the application layer in order to gain competitive advantage.

But much of the application technology in a typical enterprise is tied behind legacy systems. The software that enterprise organisations depend on from day to day has built up and evolved over years, perhaps even decades, spanning from mainframes through to decades old Java and .NET stacks.

Application Modernisation and Remediation is needed if the enterprise wants to move forward with the speed and agility required to successfully innovate.

How we help you

The challenge facing organisations is that these legacy systems are often complex and interconnected, so they are risky to change. They is little or no automation and lots of technical debt has built up over time, so they’re also expensive and slow to iterate on.

We help organisations to modernise and remediate these systems, cleaning up technical debt and introducing new automation so they can be changed with less effort and less risk.

Our Application Modernisation and Remediation services include:

  • Application portfolio assessments
  • Application modernisation and remediation strategies
  • Hands-on engineering services to modernise applications

Our enterprise vision

The outcome of modernising and remediating applications is to reduce the cost (in terms of both time and money) of managing these platforms, whilst increasing the organisation’s ability to innovate on its software, differentiate itself in the global market and drive competitive advantage.

Many of our clients are also looking to move applications onto more modern platforms, including private cloud, public cloud, and platform as a service.

We help to plan these migrations, and then carry them out, usually re-architecting along the way, to make services more cloud native or to improve their architecture.

Dual approach: delivery and upskilling

We can and have taken primary responsibility for delivering applications, however, we like to work in partnership with our clients as a combined team. This enables us to help deliver on your strategic projects whilst upskilling and coaching your teams on these practices.

DevOps In The Legacy Application Estate

When people ask about where to get started with DevOps, the common advice is to start with the fast moving digital systems that face off to customers – ‘systems of engagement’ over ‘systems of record’.  As the main driver behind DevOps is delivery speed, there is a lot of sense in this.  However, I am increasingly finding that DevOps thinking has a very strong case as applied to the older legacy systems. So much that perhaps we should be looking there first.
