Are you looking for a partner to help find legacy migration solutions?
Perhaps you feel your current software technology is out of date or inefficient? Maybe it’s limiting your ability to scale and grow? It could be cumbersome and expensive to maintain, let alone enhance.
You’d like to start again – keeping the parts that work well, and removing those that don’t, ultimately building an integrated software solution that meets your unique business needs without the associated high cost.
You need a well thought out legacy software modernisation strategy.
The decision to migrate can be exciting, daunting even – without the internal skills or resources to make it happen. For a project of this scale – usually business-critical – you need the right team behind it from the outset.
Finding the right partner is half the battle won
What if we said: all you need for your legacy software migration is an internal project lead or sponsor, someone who knows your business inside out or knows exactly where to find the relevant information, and we can do the rest?
Done well, and executed carefully, a legacy migration systems overhaul has the power to unleash your company’s true potential – with the right technology in place plus the right software partner to develop and maintain it.
We will take the time to understand your business, your needs, and your goals. We’ll work with you to find the right solution and build or assemble it using our extensive cross-industry knowledge, software skills, and innovative thinking.
Our legacy software migration process
We draw upon many years of legacy software modernisation, migration, and project delivery experience.
We’ve developed a successful six-phase approach that ensures our clients get their desired outcomes.
integrate & build
The first step in legacy migration is to understand the business objectives, both current and future, your current technology infrastructure, and your current business processes. This will identify your pain points and inefficiencies.
- Review and analysis
Based on the audit, we review the pain points and inefficiencies with you, try to establish blue sky scenarios, and analyse which off-the-shelf tools could best complement or replace your current systems. The resulting infrastructure will likely be a mixture of state of the art off-the-shelf platforms, integrated to seamlessly work together, and bespoke solutions that we create for you.
- Build roadmap
We will then work with you and your teams to carefully plan the migration – mapping out the steps and identifying risks and dependencies at each of them. We will include time to evaluate and select new potential platforms that will need to be implemented.
- Select, implement and integrate & build
Once we’ve understood the requirements across your business, chosen the software solutions and mapped out the migration, we’ll start the phase of selecting the best off-the-shelf tools, implementing and integrating them, while (in parallel) developing any bespoke solutions required.
- Host & maintain and enhance
We are in it with you for the long term. We can host any platform that isn’t self hosted from the moment it goes live. We can also work under a retainer to help you maintain your infrastructure by ensuring you are on the latest versions of all platforms and implement the latest security measures required. Finally, you may want to keep tweaking the infrastructure to squeeze out more efficiencies and growth opportunities, which we can help you with under the same retainer.
