Grid Four Columns - Software Modernisation
How we help.
We help you re-architect and rebuild legacy, hard-to-maintain apps into modern cross-platform, cloud native scalable and performant solutions. Here’s some of the typical customer challenges we see.
SoftwareMod - Element - Locked
Outdated architectural approaches means our data is inaccessible/ value is locked into structured formats.
SoftwareMod - Element - Integrate
We need to update the tech stack so we can integrate with other apps and systems.
SoftwareMod - Element - Functionality
We can’t (or shouldn’t) build new the functionality we need to satisfy evolving mgmt/ user requirements into the application.
SoftwareMod - Element - UX
Our user experience is no longer competitive – we need to transform presentation and performance.
SoftwareMod - Element - Platform
We’re limited by our underlying platform – it’s starting to impact performance and scale.
SoftwareMod - Element - Security
We’re starting to encounter security concerns relating to supportability of core components.
SoftwareMod - Element - TCO
The TCO of our legacy application(s) is too high: cost and value are not aligned.
SoftwareMod - Element - Maintenance
Maintenance is becoming an increasing challenge due to staff turnover and knowledge decay.

SoftwareMod - Legacy Modernisation
SoftwareMod - legacy-modernisation
We help put your applications and software systems to work as you build competitive edge and market share. Working closely with your teams, we’ll help you modernise and standardise core software in your business, removing barriers to growth and scale, enhancing experience and unlocking potential.
We assess the current application landscape and propose a roadmap for modernisation. We then select and mobilise a cross-functional team to work on the roadmap, supporting the live product, adding features to keep the software relevant to the business and modernising the platform and technology concurrently.
