Legacy modernization is a top priority of public sector organizations, especially with the emergence of new technologies like social, mobile, cloud and the focus on ‘being digital.’
Despite multiple initiatives to modernize IT systems, most public sector organizations still spend 60% to 80% of their IT budget on maintaining existing systems. Clearly, these modernization initiatives have fallen short on delivering the desired returns either by being too limited in scope or too slow to keep up with evolving technology.
So why is this? Key factors impeding the modernization process include:
- Inadequate planning – poor classification of existing systems leading to implementation of the wrong modernization strategy.
- Lack of documentation, limited system knowledge and/or a shortage of experts all of which increase the risk of losing business rules in the modernization process.
- The complexity of the legacy IT systems which leads to scope-creep, cost -overruns and playing technology catchup.
