IT productivity and innovation go hand-in-hand. When developers are readily available for new projects, rather than assigned to costly ongoing maintenance, the door is open to new thinking. Modernizing legacy environments can reduce required maintenance time by over 50 per cent and greatly reduce the technological footprint. This helps IT departments to reduce costs accelerate development cycles and assign valuable and often-expensive resources to new initiatives that can enhance – rather than just maintain – company performance.
For many firms struggling with outdated legacy technologies, the question of whether they need to modernize their system easily answered. However, when it comes to modernization projects, it is crucial to get it right from the start to maximize subsequent benefits and opportunities. Functionality such as intranets, extra-nets, and data warehouses can more easily implemented on a modernized system, but newer functionality must initially take a back seat to basic modernization of the legacy systems that will support them – and the business – now and in the future.
