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.

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.

Ballard Chalmers undertook further development to an existing application. They were very quick to understand our requirements, were able to create a complete test environment within Azure in record fast time, fully understood the the existing connectivity solution into our back end systems and provided further enhancements and ongoing support.

IT Manager – Jacksons Fencing

There are two levels to Ballard Chalmers’ role. They took over the software’s management and help us to stabilize it. Their team also evolves the product to modern standards. We have a detailed roadmap that they help us to achieve. Their team understands our business context and gives us advice if we’re going down the wrong path.

IT Manager, Y.CO

Since the original phase 1 launch, the number of accounts worked by the team has increased by 250%, successful outcomes by 137%, payments by 152%, among many more positive stories. While headcount has remained fairly static, these improvements have been heavily influenced by process and system improvements that we’ve put in place together.

Business Analyst – Energy Services Company

Moving our Global ERP System from an on-premises solution to a cloud hybrid solution presented some technical challenges during design and implementation phases. Ballard Chalmers consultants provided the skills and expertise needed to successfully complete the project. We are extremely happy with the end result and the service provided by Ballard Chalmers.

Head of IT EMEA and Global Networks – Imagination

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
