About Platform Modernisation

To stay competitive, you must innovate. Platform Modernisation replaces or upgrades your outdated, slow, or expensive-to-maintain legacy IT systems & applications with modern, more agile and scalable solutions, giving your organisation better operational efficiencies, faster system performance, fewer time-consuming tasks or processes, and much lower operating costs. These broad upgrades deliver 100% business security and free up your IT and development teams from firefighting, retaining valuable staff.

What If I Don't Modernise?

If your current legacy and older systems still can still provide most of the things your business need, it can be tempting to save on capital investment by doing nothing. 

However, the cost of keeping legacy systems “alive” is highly likely to outweigh that of modernising - and carries a much higher risk. In 2021, the average business cost of data breaches was €3.72 million, with businesses losing on average €1.39 million due to these and other failures. Legacy systems cost large enterprises around €252 million in maintenance, support, and replacement costs. 

Sooner rather than later, your legacy systems will not being able to provide the features and functions your business needs to remain competitive. 

What are the Expected Benefits from Modernising?

Platform modernisation benefits every layer of your organisation, from your developers, management, and administration, to your clients and end users. Modern development tools allow fast, seamless building and deployment for smoother business operations.  The added layers of data security, improved User Experience, and automated reporting make life easier for everyone on the system, whether they're inside your team, or doing business with you.


Your Staff & Customers

When you bring your legacy systems up to date with the latest technology, and provide a more stable, scalable and more secure environment for IT operations and organisational processes, everyone benefits. The back end of your systems are faster, more secure, and easier to maintain, with vast improvements to your front end customer-facing operations and CX. Overall, Platform Modernisation means a reduction in the total cost of ownership, as well as an improved business continuity plan.
