Our application modernisation service enables organisations to reduce operating costs and increase business agility. We have a strong track record of helping organisations across the UK to consolidate, re-architect and replace critical legacy enterprise applications successfully.
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.
Optimize and Modernize your Legacy Systems for Modern Business.
Companies across all industries are facing an ever more competitive market. With newer, more modern and often cloud-based products and services regularly dominating the market. Your traditional system, though excellent in its time has now become an outdated legacy application. Patches which worked in the short-term have now created slows and incompatibilities. The functionality of your system is being compromised and you need to do something about it.
As technology advances, consumers and employees alike expect smoother interfacing, better performance, faster transactions and larger data requirements. Simultaneously data and privacy standards have increased. In short, out-of-date legacy systems can risk your spot in the marketplace.
Application Modernization is the strategic step most organizations are moving toward to solve legacy system issues.
All enterprises have different application modernization needs but the outcome will always be a smoother system and better functionality with easier maintenance and scaling.
Advantages of application modernization:
- Create new features
- Improve user experience
- Update the interface design
- Improve scalability
- Improve speed
- Fix existing system bugs and errors
- Take advantage of Azure cloud hosting
- Reduce total cost of ownership
- Bring system security to modern standards
