Your company has grown successfully. And your investments in IT to date have created a competitive advantage in many ways. Maybe you have created more efficient systems cutting operational costs? Maybe you are delivering service and product features your competitors cannot match? Maybe you have been able to scale your business efficiently to capture market share? But while these legacy applications have helped you succeed, they can just as easily sink your company if you fail to invest at the right time to modernize your applications; and take advantage new and emerging technologies. Challenges faced by companies with outdated legacy systems include:
- High Costs: Cost to maintain and expand applications and associated hardware to develop new functionality and features – maintaining legacy systems can often consume 75%+ of the capacity of your IT resources.
- Finding Resources: You require help you maintain legacy systems with outdated programming languages and these skills are hard to find.
- Higher Risk: Incidences of system failures are higher with legacy applications – this often exacerbated by lack of documentation.
- User frustration and Reduced Productivity: Using applications with old/poor interfaces and poor performance can frustrate employees and hamper their productivity.
- Falling Behind Competitors: Inflexible legacy apps are hard to adapt limiting your ability to respond quickly to changing business conditions.
- Missing Out on New Opportunities: Integrating new technologies for your organization due to lack of compatibility between legacy and new operating systems means you cannot take advantage of new technology.
