78% of current enterprise application portfolios will experience some level of change in the coming two years - retire, replace or upgrade - while only 22% of the portfolio will remain unchanged.
Application modernization is best executed after an application rationalization strategy and planning effort to develop a roadmap to guide the evolution of the portfolio for selected applications requiring modernization treatments.
GoVirtual understands that one solution will not fit for all organizations. Legacy Transformation is a journey that both of us have to be part of together. In this context we take a "horizon" approach to transforming your legacy systems:-
Immediate Goals: We'll identify the candidates on the legacy that can give immediate reduction in costs of operation. We'll typically identify systems that can be "retired" and/or "decommissioned". Herein, We'll also assess possibilities/feasibilities of quick solutions like front-end modernization.
Short-Term Goals: We'll assess your short-term requirements. We'll evaluate a solution that can possibly provide a modern front-end while keeping the backend systems the same. This Horizon focusses on identification of integration pieces and checking applicability of mobile-enabling the legacy.
Long-Term Goals: We'll assess your long-term need and provide a roadmap for transforming your legacy systems. Herein we evaluate new age deployment models, technologies and also assess your readiness for the same to provide a fool proof transformation roadmap. It is this Horizon where your readiness for Replacing, Re-writing, Platforming or Re-platforming of applications is examined and appropriate actions are taken.
