How can legacy modernization become less of a challenge and more of an opportunity?
We are all familiar with the challenge when it comes to our mainframe applications. Our business applications support a lot, but then there are these cases which do not work well or require some unexpected behavior, or maybe even our competitors are able to leverage their information better. Even worse, a new competitor appears in the market disrupting our business with an innovative way of approaching the business. Yet, we do not want to just throw all our valuable information and supported process away and start from scratch. There is value in what we have – our legacy application - even though sometimes it has limits.
Legacy modernization means change. However, it poses a huge challenge on IT teams, and as much as businesses like to improve their applications, they hate outages. However, quoting Grace Murray Hopper, the inventor of Cobol, here “A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for.” It is key to anticipate change and prepare for continuous modernization efforts.
