Application Modernization

Your Legacy Applications May Be Relics of the Distant Past, But They Represent Future Opportunity

Viderity’s application modernization team can migrate your legacy applications to current technology platforms. The result? Full restoration of original functionality, enhanced performance, elimination of security risks – and many more years of service gained from the original investment in your legacy application.

If your enterprise is like most, you depend daily upon legacy applications that run on outdated technological platforms. It’s been estimated, in fact, that on average more than half of a typical organization’s operations are dependent upon legacy systems.

But there’s a very simple reason that legacy applications become legacy applications: they work. They do the job. That makes throwing them away and replacing them with new applications a painful and expensive process.

And in many cases completely unnecessary.

Preserve Current Capabilities, Assure Forward Compatibility

When Viderity’s team tackles your modernization project, we’ll be working to assure that your legacy application will retain all the capabilities you depend upon.

But as we design and plan the migration of your application, we’ll also be keeping an eye toward the future. We’ll work to assure a system architecture that will be compatible with foreseeable technological advancements.

The goal? It will be many years before your modernized application can again be labeled a ‘legacy’ application!

Migrate and Modernize Instead of Rip and Replace

The legacy applications that you depend upon may have been in place for decades. But though they’re an integral component of your organization’s operations, they also represent substantial risk:

Rising Costs: Legacy applications running on legacy platforms cost more to maintain than systems based on new, up-to-date technologies – a discrepancy that will grow ever worse as time passes.
Diminishing Resources: Maintaining and modifying systems based upon old technologies requires skills that are in ever-diminishing supply. That means that reliability grows increasingly difficult to assure, and scalability is impeded.
Lack of Agility: Legacy applications that are dependent upon outdated technologies rarely offer the flexibility required in addressing the evolving needs of your organization.
Performance Issues: The outdated platforms that often support legacy applications can be slow, unwieldy – and sometimes unstable.
Security Concerns: Legacy applications often run on outdated technology platforms that present unavoidable security risks to your organization.

But though legacy systems represent risk, they also offer opportunity.

By modernizing a legacy application and migrating it to a modern technological platform, you can retain the mission-critical functions of the application – but without incurring the potentially massive costs and inconveniences of from-scratch development.

And you’ll be able to continue reaping the benefits of your organization’s original investment in the legacy application for many more years
