4 reminders about legacy modernization

Legacy systems remain critical to many (most) organizations and so legacy modernization is still a hot topic (which is why we have a webinar on legacy modernization coming up with our partner TechBlue). With that in mind, as at is has been a while since I blogged on this topic, I thought I would share a few thoughts. First, this week, four key reminders when modernizing legacy applications:

  1. You don’t need to modernize the whole application
    Often you can dramatically improve a legacy application by modernizing just part of it. Many pieces of legacy applications work just fine and have few, if any, change requests pending. Maintaining these pieces as legacy code is not expensive and replacing it all would be high risk so why not leave it alone while focusing on the pieces that don’t work well, especially the pieces that have high maintenance costs.

Webinar: Best Practices in Targeted Legacy Modernization in Government

I am giving a webinar on Best Practices in Targeted Legacy Modernization in Government March 5, 2014 at Noon Eastern with Claye Greene, MD of government solutions provider and Decision Management Solutions partner TechBlue.

Many government organizations are coping with aging legacy systems that are costly to maintain, difficult to change and lack the modern architecture needed to satisfy today’s consumer. Instead of trying to replace an entire system with the high risks and costs involved in such a project, these government organizations are instead adopting a decision management approach and business rules management systems to target their modernization efforts where they have the biggest impact.

In this live webinar we’ll share know how and best practices from their extensive experience helpi
