LEGACY SYSTEM UPGRADES AND INTEGRATION
Upgrading Business Processes with Custom Software to Improve your Bottom Line
LEGACY SYSTEM UPGRADES
Our clients range from new and innovative companies to those wanting to upgrade their current applications. For companies operating on older technology (legacy systems), there are many reasons to refresh your applications, including: better support and less maintenance costs, better focus on user expectations and needs, better performance, better scalability to growing business demands, more reliability, and better adherence to business process. In some cases, it may make sense for our clients to maintain their legacy system and simply integrate newer applications into their existing system. There are risks and rewards associated with either approach, so thoughtful planning prior to executing a development approach is necessary for success.
In these scenarios, AppIt Ventures helps clients develop a technology strategy for their information system, building a roadmap for implementing changes without the disruption of ongoing operations, as well as providing support for critical day-to-day business as the transition (or integration) takes place.
- Change in business process. As business needs shift, technology requirements follow. In some cases, a change in business process may require a fully new custom application (desktop, web or mobile) to integrate with a legacy system.
- Rebranding effort. When clients go through a rebranding effort, it may require a shift in how they leverage their website or existing applications to support the new brand. When these changes take place, it’s important to plan for the impact of legacy systems integrations.
- Tech upgrade. To address scalability, maintainability and security concerns, modernizing legacy systems may require a full re-write or integration with newer portions of the applications.
- SaaS tool integration. SaaS tools, to effectively support business operations, may need to integrate with clients’ backend systems.
