With rapidly changing technology, it’s time to keep up with the trends, such as modernizing applications to fit user needs. Some apps need to be re-platformed for various mediums, such as tablets, smartphones and computers. Programming languages also have changed, so slight tweaks to the structures are needed. Plus, users will LOVE the speed that comes along with these changes.
Creating new business value from your current applications is the ultimate goal of application modernization. Outdated software can prevent apps from performing the specific functions they were designed to do. There are various ways to modernize applications, such as rewriting the existing COBOL code to a more web-friendly programming language, or adding a web interface to keep portions of the existing application.
To strategically advance in your industry, investing in maintenance and modernization is a must. However, also take into consideration the time and money that goes along with it. Timing is important to make the most of your money. Only start the modernization process once your current applications are going out of style.
