Creating new business value from existing applications – 5 key drivers for legacy modernisation


Rip and replace? Or reuse and repurpose? Does application modernisation really work? Here at Oninit, with over 15 years of experience in application modernisation, we’ve identified 5 real benefits delivered by modernising existing enterprise applications:

  1. Improve user productivity
    Modern application interfaces are richer and more intuitive, providing easier navigation and faster access to data. Performance is vastly improved, offering an enhanced service to staff and customers
  2. Enhance existing applications
    Unleash the enormous potential in existing applications by incorporating new features quickly - continuing to make legacy applications relevant to your changing business
  3. Support a mobile, remote or distributed workforce
    Open up legacy applications to enable access to company-critical information from any device, at any time of day or night, to drive greater business agility and growth
  4. Improve operational reporting
    Accelerate access to up-to-the-minute operational data helping your business to make faster decisions
  5. Integrate legacy applications with new systems
    Linking older software apps to other business systems such as email, document management and desktop tools massively improves workflow and productivity

Many organisations have found modernising existing applications is quicker, less risky and less costly than replacing them. We help businesses address the challenges of legacy modernisation and enable them to exploit legacy data and systems across the enterprise; increasing the ability to respond to market changes quicker and more efficiently and reducing operational costs by improving staff productivity.

So it’s not always “out with the old, and in with the new,” but more like “make the most, and more” out of all the great apps you already have.
