Legacy system modernisation

Update outdated IT and software systems

Our legacy system modernisation services are tailored to help businesses update outdated systems, ensuring they are robust, scalable, and ready to meet the demands of the modern digital landscape. By leveraging the latest technologies and strategic planning, we enable organisations to transform their legacy applications into efficient, high-performing assets.

We begin every modernisation project with a thorough assessment of your current applications. This involves taking an inventory of existing systems and evaluating their current state, challenges, and modernisation potential. Based on this assessment, we develop a detailed roadmap that outlines the goals, methodologies, timelines, and resources required to achieve successful modernisation.

Modernisation strategies

Our approach includes several key strategies to modernise legacy systems:

  • Rehosting: Migrating applications to a new environment.
  • Refactoring: Restructuring existing code to improve performance and maintainability.
  • Replatforming: Moving applications to a different platform to enhance performance and scalability.
  • Re-architecting: Redesigning the application’s architecture to meet modern standards.
  • Full Replacement: Replacing outdated systems entirely when necessary.

To ensure that your modernised applications are future-proof, we incorporate cutting-edge technologies:

  • Microservices Architecture: Breaking down monolithic applications into smaller, independent services that can be deployed and scaled individually.
  • APIs: Exposing functionality via APIs to facilitate integration with other applications and services.

Trust the experts in legacy modernisation

We prioritise reducing technical debt within legacy code by refactoring and restructuring it. This makes the code more maintainable and adaptable, setting the stage for a smooth transition to modern, cloud-native systems.

Security is a core consideration in our modernisation efforts. We integrate security measures including conduct comprehensive risk assessments, and ensure compliance with relevant regulations throughout the process.

We help businesses across a range of sectors modernise their legacy systems, enabling them to operate more efficiently, reduce costs, and stay competitive in a rapidly evolving digital environment.

Frequently asked questions

What is legacy system modernisation?
Legacy system modernisation is the process of updating and transforming outdated IT systems, software, and applications to meet current technological standards. This involves enhancing performance, security, and functionality, ensuring these systems can support modern business needs and integrate with new technologies.
Modernising legacy IT systems is crucial for maintaining competitiveness, improving operational efficiency, and reducing maintenance costs. Legacy systems can be slow, insecure, and difficult to maintain, which can hinder business growth. Modernisation allows businesses to leverage the latest technologies, enhance security, and improve overall performance.
There are several strategies, including rehosting (moving systems to new environments), refactoring (restructuring code for better performance), replatforming (switching to different platforms), re-architecting (redesigning system architecture), and complete replacement of legacy software systems. The chosen strategy depends on the specific needs and conditions of the organisation.
Data migration from legacy systems to new ones involves transferring data from outdated systems to modern platforms. This process requires careful planning and execution to ensure data integrity and minimise downtime. It typically includes steps such as data assessment, mapping, extraction, transformation, loading, and validation.
Challenges in legacy system modernisation can include technical debt, data migration complexities, integration issues with new systems, and ensuring security and compliance. Overcoming these challenges requires thorough planning, a clear strategy, and the use of modern tools and technologies.
Ensuring the security of modernised legacy systems involves integrating security measures from the beginning of the modernisation process. This includes conducting risk assessments, implementing robust security protocols, and ensuring compliance with relevant regulations. Regular updates and monitoring are also essential to maintaining security.
Yes, modernising legacy systems can significantly improve business operations by enhancing system performance, reducing downtime, improving data accuracy, and enabling better integration with new technologies. This leads to more efficient processes, better decision-making, and overall increased productivity.

Cloud computing plays a vital role in legacy system modernisation by providing scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions. Migrating legacy systems to the cloud can improve performance, facilitate data migration, and enable access to advanced technologies such as AI and machine learning, thereby enhancing overall business capabilities.

The duration of a modernisation project depends on the complexity and scale of the systems involved, as well as the chosen modernisation strategy. It can range from a few months to several years. A detailed assessment and strategic planning phase can help provide a more accurate timeline.
The benefits of legacy system modernisation include improved system performance, enhanced security, reduced maintenance costs, better integration with new technologies, increased agility, and the ability to support future business growth. These improvements can lead to significant competitive advantages in the market.
