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 Platform Modernisation replaces or upgrades your outdated, slow, or expensive-to-maintain legacy IT systems & applications with modern, more agile and scalable solutions, giving your organisation better operational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?

It can be tempting to avoid investing in updating legacy systems - even if your  outdated systems cannot meet the majority of your business's needs.

However, the expenses associated with maintaining these legacy systems are likely to outweigh the costs of modernising them, and they come with much higher risks. In 2021, the average cost of data breaches for businesses was €3.72 million, resulting in an average loss of €1.39 million due to such breaches and other failures. Large enterprises bear maintenance, support, and replacement costs amounting to around €252 million for legacy systems.

Sooner rather than later, your legacy systems will become incapable of providing the necessary features and functionalities for your business to stay 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.
