What Is a Legacy System?

If you’re still in doubt about software modernization, tick how many of the following issues you’ve already encountered and consider whether they can exacerbate in the near future.

Too expensive to support

The search for the engineers who can keep it running and the fines for not meeting regulatory compliance are only a small part of how much legacy software devours.

Decrease in productivity

Inability to integrate your software with the new age tools of other departments will cause huge bottlenecks and become the reason to lag behind the competitors.

Poor accessibility

Legacy software is often bound to one device, and it doesn’t allow workers to access business data, hence they can't effectively work in remote mode.

Not compatible with modern apps

Incompatibility with modern apps will not only isolate your company and leave it all alone in the ocean of business, but create internal silos.

Discontinued by vendors

One day vendors will stop maintaining your legacy software and cease to update it, that will leave you stuck with an outdated software and lack of productivity.

Insufficient documentation

Security breaches, a lack of customer trust, and penalties are the consequences of the reluctancy to update a legacy system and make it meet every regulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is application modernization?

Software modernization is the process of updating legacy systems by rewriting their code, adding new features, changing their platform, infrastructure, or both. The aim is to enable outdated software to communicate with its younger counterparts, become more flexible, and streamline business processes in organizations. Moreover, application modernization serves to eliminate silos and bottlenecks caused by legacy platforms’ rigidity.

What is meant by legacy application and legacy system?

A legacy system or legacy application is the software that stopped bringing profit to businesses due to becoming outdated, hard to maintain, and expensive to repair. Most of the time, it’s more financially feasible to modernize legacy software rather than replace it with a totally new one.

One of the legacy system examples can be ten-year-old payroll systems that keep using the methodologies emerged even before their creation. In this case, business process automation tools can surely replace tons of hard copy files, the lack of automation options, mistakes in calculations, and outdated programming languages of legacy platforms.

What are the risks of running on a legacy system?

Although your legacy system can still work, sooner or later you’ll face the following problems:

  • inability to scale;
  • inability to integrate it with new tools and run it on modern browsers;
  • it can require outdated knowledge, hence engineers won’t know how to maintain it;
  • without updates, security breaches will occur and make your software exposed to cyberattacks;
  • financial losses due to penalties imposed for not meeting regulatory compliance and customer loss because of poor UI/UX.

What are application modernization services?

Fively provides the following legacy application modernization services:

  • Reviewing

What are some of the key technologies and approaches for application modernization?

The main approaches and technologies used in the process of modernizing legacy applications are:

Automation: replacement the manual labour and routine tasks with machines;

Microservices: creating the architecture that’s divided into small, independent parts and allows to add and get rid of some of them as needed.

APIs: facilitation of interconnectivity among programs by integrating a legacy system with other apps and devices within or outside your company.

Cloud services: migration to platforms that are hosted by third-parties and don’t require physical hardware to run.

Containerization: a special approach to packaging an app into a container that can be further run on any other device and on the cloud.

How can we move legacy applications to the Cloud without rewriting them?

There are three ways to migrate legacy applications and the first one, indeed, doesn’t require code rewriting:

  • Lift and shif

no changes to architecture or code: just installing your app in the cloud. But this solution poses several security and performance threats because the initial app structure was built to work in a different environment.

  • Rebuilding

this application migration service involves code changes and requires a larger scope of work, including workflow analysis. Such full-fledged app modernization ensures that new software is optimized specifically for a serverless infrastructure.

  • Refactoring

we can also rewrite the business logic part of a legacy system or only its front end without changing the whole chunk of code.

Can a monolith legacy application successfully adopt modern practices like Agile and DevOps?

Yes, it can, but it’ll still need app modernization services to adopt DevOps and Agile methodologies. For example, a monolithic legacy system should be divided into smaller components, or microservices. The reason is that monolithic structures contradict the basis of DevOps and Agile: continuous delivery and continuous deployment.

Migrating legacy applications to microservices is the best route to make your software more flexible, reliable, and efficient, but it may take some time for a team to adapt to a new culture.

How can APIs modernize legacy systems?

APIs are so-called doorways that allow programs to communicate with each other. One of the biggest problems of legacy platforms is their isolation from the rest of modern software, so with the right API integration, you can renew your software’s ability to exchange data with other apps.

APIs can integrate your app with blockchain, AI and ML, analytics tools, cloud storage, and even allow for mobile access to your business data, providing your employees with the opportunity to work remotely.

What is modernization strategy?

The application modernization strategy includes four simple steps:

  1. Evaluate your legacy system and determine if it meets your current business goals.
  2. Define what problems are caused by your legacy system and what should be improved.
  3. Through careful analysis of the problems, choose one of the legacy systems modernization approaches.
  4. Find the right partner that can provide app modernization services and maximize the productivity of your team exponentially.
  5. Update and maintain your refreshed software and enjoy the profits.

How do you estimate the cost of redesigning a software application?

The ultimate cost of modernizing legacy applications depends on the complexity of a particular project and the scope of work to be done. Leave us a message, and we’ll provide you with a free consultation on the legacy application modernization services Fively provides.
