What is legacy modernization?
In the past, organizations built monolithic platforms on expensive hardware. These systems were highly customized to meet business needs, and often required lots of maintenance to keep them optimized and running smoothly. As the digital space evolves, systems age and grow stale—and user expectations change.
Legacy modernization is the practice of retaining the business value from legacy systems while migrating your organization to newer infrastructures, technologies, programming languages and user experiences.
Why do you need it?
Evolution of User Expectations
