The legacy challenge

Recent surveys indicate that some 50% of all IT assets in both public and private sectors are ageing legacies in need of modernisation.

Digital disruption, meantime, has energised new competition in many industries and seems to be an unstoppable force that will seriously impact business strategies.

50% of all IT assets need modernisation
New technologies emerging
Increasing customer expectations and emerging new technologies continue to expose ageing legacy systems, which are often increasingly unstable, highly customised and unable to respond adequately or at a reasonable cost.

Boards largely remain passive – legacy systems probably work well until they don’t and even though legacies are often core systems that companies depend upon, executives see modernisation as complex, costly and giving unacceptable levels of risk.

remain passive
IT focused on keeping the existing systems
In response, many IT departments are focussed only on keeping the existing systems operating whilst reducing costs where they can.

Project phases

Project phases

We are organised to deliver a project from initiation to implementation, and support it on-going if required, with experienced developers, testers, project managers and analysts.

Approach to delivery
'The Future Way'

Approach to deliver – ‘The Future Way’

We employ our proven approach to delivery ‘The Future Way’ which:

  • Uses key features from Agile development, such as regular delivery and iterations to demonstrate and validate progress
  • Is supplemented by project management disciplines to preserve focus and manage risks
  • Makes extensive use of tools throughout development, testing and release
  • Instils effective transparent communication
  • Delivers integrated quality through specialised testers and optimised use of automated testing tools
  • Is adaptable and not prescriptive regarding tools, adoption of technology types and commercial models

Approach to specifications

Approach to specifications

Full specification of your system is not essential. If you do not have detailed documentation of your legacy system, our Analysis and Design team can help. They can run workshops with your team to gain a thorough understanding from your employees of how your system, as well as your business work.  Our developers are experienced in quickly understanding the business function within a legacy system that may not have been properly documented. This, coupled with a rigorous test-driven development approach, reduces the need for you to provide details about your old system.
