Modernizing the Core Systems without Business Disruption

Legacy systems have four types of risks; Aging system and technology, availability of Skills, very less or no integration therefore Agility in business, complex applications and increase in cost of support. Assessment and understanding of the system and the intricacies involved in the integrations are critical to the success of the transformation. Maintenance Led Modernization™ (MLM) is a unique approach to “de-risk” the entire transformation journey of the legacy systems. In order to transform the systems it is very important to transition the support of the systems and optimize the same first. Understanding the systems lay the foundation in transforming them.

Key Performance Indicators

No design and documented business processes.

Knowledge of legacy systems are person dependent. Hence during the transition and optimization phases it is important to recover the design of the applications from the source code of the applications. In order to transform the systems it is equally important to have the knowledge of and how to support and maintain the systems.

Reduce the Technical Debt of the core systems.

Legacy systems by nature have a lot of debt because the technology is old and mostly obsolete. Secondly, there is a lot of redundancy that adds to the debt. One of the key principles of MLM is to develop a culture of “Zero Technical Debt”.
