SOME OF OUR Application Modernisation ENGAGEMENTS

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU WITH APPLICATION MODERNISATION

ON PREMISES

When migrating to the cloud has been ruled out, the re-engineering of on-premises critical business systems enables them to continue functioning and delivering value.

CLOUD

Application modernisation can help you to achieve new business value from your existing applications by using the latest in innovative cloud technology and features.

HYBRID

Application integration with new cloud layers built-in as a hybrid solution offers cloud benefits but leaves the legacy system in place — utilising it for what it is good for.

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 proves 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.

Ballard Chalmers’ consultancy and Microsoft .NET development expertise has been instrumental in the redevelopment of the Canterbury Student .NET portal.

Information Systems Development Manager – Canterbury Christ Church University

I wanted to thank you personally for all the work you have put into this – the migration has gone very well, not a grumble from anyone!

Director – AppCan

We have noticed a dramatic improvement in our development speed and the quality of work is high. This is due to the direct communication we have with their developers to discuss and solve problems. We look forward to continuing to work with Ballard Chalmers and continuing to grow and improve our Care Database.”

Director of Operations – The Care Database

The deliverables have helped internal stakeholders use resources more efficiently. Organized and responsive, the team excelled at collaborating with stakeholders. Their transparent communication supported a positive partnership. They were tenacious workers.

Founding Partner – Digital Transformation Company

We were very keen to demonstrate to the team that something as complicated as this could be handled quickly and efficiently, without major disruption to their operations: something which we have successfully done.

Director – AppCan

Ballard Chalmers consultancy and development expertise has been key in helping us capitalise on our existing investment in Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and helping us deliver an effective solution to the business. We look forward to working in partnership with them as we continue to enhance and develop our SharePoint system.

CEO – Appleyards

If we find a bug in the product, we’re able to speak directly with the developers to correct issues quickly and easily. In our prior partnership, we didn’t have direct contact with developers, so that was a huge improvement in this engagement. It helped us complete tasks more quickly. ”

Director of Operations – The Care Database

Their team’s extremely competent. Unlike our previous vendor, I don’t have to worry about their ability to complete tasks. They’re engaged and turnaround results quickly. Whether it’s competency or cost, it’s all positive.

IT Manager, Y.CO

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.

Head of IT – Young Epilepsy

This was our first experience of working with Ballard Chalmers. They did a great job of working to our style of project management (e.g. through issues management) and allowed us to deliver the upgrade and redesign of SharePoint that we wanted, whilst adhering to best practice.

Application Modernization

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 organizations are taking to solve legacy system issues. Though all enterprises have different application modernization needs, the outcome will always be a smoother system and better functionality with easier maintenance and scaling.
