Why Should You Modernize Your System?
How often have you heard, “The software is working just fine and still does almost everything we need it to do!” So why fix what isn’t broke? Unfortunately, the person speaking may not be aware of the unseen costs incurred. According to a report from the Whitehouse, in 2019 alone, the US Federal Government spent 80% of the IT budget on Operations and Maintenance, mainly targeting legacy systems (which they noted) posed cybersecurity and mission risks.
Hidden Cost #1: Maintenance & Support
Hidden Cost #2: Integration & Compliance
Hidden Cost #3: Limited Ability To Grow
According to a Fujitsu Survey report, among the primary digital transformation drivers of business growth and competitiveness, greater efficiency and cost reduction are numbers one and two. Your data becomes a valuable resource and assists growth by considering your options and ensuring that your system is integrated with other departments. If you can’t grow and do what you have determined is necessary to improve your business, you are hamstrung, especially when competing with other companies in your same industry. (source)
Why Not Everything Needs To Be New And Cutting Edge!
Your business is operating and making money, but could you do it more efficiently and improve customer and employee satisfaction without reinventing the wheel? However, when your organization is considering application modernization, it is crucial to look at the upgrade within the framework of the whole ignorer to determine the best way forward. Once you have a complete picture, you can assign tasks to each and identify the next steps. Below is a list of rankings that should be considered and assigned when evaluating an application and the framework around it:
No Need For Change — The software is working and is up-to-date or in a preferable state.
Requires Updating Within Current Technology Base — Working but could use a version update or adjustments based on the most recent recommended best practices.
Should Be Considered For Migration To Another Technology Due To Limitation. — The technology may be working just fine but is limiting your ability to implement changes that fit with your requirements. Reasons for this may be due to the technology itself, limitations on toolsets and libraries, or lack of resources trained in the technology, all impacting maintenance, and expansion costs.
Front End – User Experience and User Interface Requires New Approach And Design — Technology that is a burden to use impacts more than IT support. If customers and employees using the software are getting frustrated, or requirements have changed and so must the layout, this is the time to revisit the UX/UI and with it the technology behind the application.
Start Over – Complete Application Rewrite — Sometimes, it is essential to start over. Cobble old and poorly written code together with new can lead to a nightmare down the road, increasing costs, frustration, and in the end, a result that is less than desirable. Start over and follow a proven best practice plan.
Application Not Needed Anymore – Decommission — Application is no longer needed. With an upgrade or new plan, existing applications can be bundled or simplified and handled in one new application, or if working within a microservices structure, upgrades spread out over a network and handle an outdated task. This is more often the case when an organization realizes the value of its data and the benefits provided when used for predictive modeling, Machine Learning, and AI. Out-of-date applications do not always collect the data in a format that can be utilized, and this is where an old application should be decommissioned, and a new one created.
You are always collecting proprietary data for future planning, forecasting, and predictive modeling, but is it in the proper format to take advantage of new automated technologies and tool packages? Data, captured and processed the correct way, is the key to tapping into the benefits of Machine Learning and algorithm-driven intelligence. Each process consumes and relies upon extreme volumes of data during development and operation. Make sure the value of your data is realized.
