SOME OF OUR Application Modernisation ENGAGEMENTS
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU WITH APPLICATION MODERNISATION
Ballard Chalmers can help you to re-imagine your enterprise applications making them once again fit for purpose.
With enterprise technology being an ever-evolving landscape, it is proven cost-effective to modernise legacy systems to benefit from newer innovations to increase business agility. As important as the modernisation itself, is the team you task with the with responsibility of implementing it.
We understand that cloud is not feasible for every organisation, with IT assets perhaps sitting behind corporate firewalls, or highly regulated and very proprietary. Our strong foundation in on-premises technology means that we can cater for every enterprise need, cloud or otherwise.
Our experts will help you determine the right path to modernisation and implement the latest in Microsoft enterprise technologies, wherever it resides.
At the outset, we work closely and consultatively with you so that the true business requirements are captured and analysed. Ensuring that business processes are reflected in the software architecture, and designs are streamlined, efficient and flow logically. Being that enterprise applications are highly complex systems, proper design, architecture and user interface are essential to creating business systems that function very well.
We have years of experience in this area, and you can be assured of a safe pair of hands to deliver software that will keep up with your modern organisational needs.
The improvements to the database structure and database performance have been very good. Before we engaged Ballard Chalmers, the database would crash, especially when searches were done. They made some changes in SQL and to the GUI [graphical user interface] and to how the data is extracted and dealt with. There’s been a significant improvement.
