Market Challenges

As technology becomes even more integral to how we work, the systems that have long underpinned our businesses now need to be assessed against the goals and challenges of the future. Legacy technology can hold your organisation back if it's not managed effectively, and will also increase your costs.


High costs

Maintaining and operating legacy applications can be incredibly expensive, statistics suggest they can consume between 60-80% of corporate IT budgets. This is because integrating and modifying them is complicated and risky.


Skills shortage

The employees that have spent decades managing legacy applications are now beginning to retire – taking the vital skills they have acquired with them. A new generation is now reaching employment with a skill set based on modern programming languages.


Difficult integration

Lack of standardisation means legacy applications struggle to integrate with modern technologies and platforms. This can halt your digital transformation strategy, particularly if it includes Cloud consumption.
