Software modernization

Extended service life, time and cost savings, and maintaining habits

How do we define
software modernization?

Software modernisation is the renewal and optimization of old software without having to adapt existing processes. Following the motto: Never change a running system. But why is software modernization so important?

In many large companies, more and more mosaic applications have developed over time. This involves a large number of applications, databases and highly complex interfaces, which generate disruptions in software and processes.

Many of the software applications in use on the market have become significantly outdated. The effort to keep such legacy systems running in old development environments or with old database technology is often immense.

Many young companies have a clear competitive advantage because they work with a uniform new software. We help you to modernize your software to the newest level by using modern technologies and development methods like Scrum and DevOps. Use our help to decide where it is worth keeping your software and where it is better to invest in a modernization. Perhaps your software is useful.

For whom is software modernization important?

Software modernization is particularly suitable for companies whose business processes have been digitalized, but whose software and software language is outdated or no longer available. Also, after years of using familiar software, it can happen that technologies are outdated or that not enough employees are able to use the software efficiently enough due to staff changes. In this case, declining know-how or inadequate documentation can affect the system security.

The modernization of software is also becoming more and more important due to tightening data protection guidelines. Software has to be adapted and modernized to the new guidelines in order to ensure the best possible information security.

Software also suffers over time and becomes slower and slower due to excessive data volumes, complex IT processes, inadequate documentation or failure to carry out tests, resulting in quality defects. This is where software modernization can make a big difference.

Software Modernization: That is why we are the right choice.

We successfully migrate your data and protect it before we start the modernization. In the history of our company, we have developed a solid understanding of legacy systems and have gained a lot of experience in change management.

Together with your company we develop a strategy to modernize your software competently or only selectively. We identify where the problems and defects of your software arise and eliminate them. Whether in functionality, usability, stability or maintainability.
