Modernizing and Transforming Legacy Applications: Key Steps and Preparatory Actions
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation examines some of the key tactical steps end-user organizations should consider when modernizing their portfolio of legacy applications. The IDC Tech Buyer Presentation examines developer survey data about legacy applications and modernization techniques such as rehosting, replatforming, refactoring, rewriting, and integration with modern development tools. In addition, the presentation reflects on the importance of application assessment, understanding modernization-related benefits, the development of a modernization strategy, and a talent management plan. The Presentation notes that a multitude of modernization pathways can be used in parallel and that modernization often proceeds incrementally, in phases, as opposed to by means of an abrupt cutover from a "legacy" state to a "modernized" one.
