Legacy System Modernization

Most public sector organizations still spend 60% to 80% of their IT budget on maintaining existing legacy systems. Clearly, their 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 or any of the factors below that impede modernization programs:

  • Poor classification of existing systems and inadequate planning leading to the 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 key business rules in the modernization process
  • The complexity of legacy IT systems which leads to scope-creep, cost -overruns and playing technology catchup
  • Insufficient funds to execute the right modernization strategy effectively
