Legacy Application Modernization Services
Your legacy software is an asset, if you know how to leverage it.
With the right team, you can achieve your legacy modernization goals without a complete software rewrite. We approach software redesign and modernization services by starting small and releasing incrementally. The result is quicker wins, lower project risk and a faster path to ROI – while delivering the business agility you require.
You do not need to replace your software – you need to replace your software team.
You have a piece of software, custom-written for your business, that performs a critical function. You have a lot of improvements you would like to make, but the software already does most of what you need – that’s the good news. The bad news is you cannot count on your development team to take you any further. In fact, you feel completely stuck.
You know you are overpaying – your developers rarely deliver on their commitments and they are terrible communicators. Instead of adding valuable features, they introduce embarrassing defects you have to handle. But they, and they alone, understand how your software works, and there is zero documentation. You feel held hostage by people who do not maintain the same level of professionalism to which you are held accountable. You have explored other legacy app modernization options, but they all seem to involve scrapping your current software and starting over. Is that really the only option?
Finding the most efficient path for innovation
OPTION 1: SUPPORT
You have big plans for a software redesign, but also a steady stream of fixes and smart additions needed today – actually, yesterday. You need the work done right the first time and your developer must deliver on their commitments – “next Thursday” means “next Thursday.”
Praxent provides the engaged, hands-on service you need to ensure your software enhancements are done right and on schedule. We are not here to make excuses for your legacy applications – we’re here to help modernize things and solve your business problems with technology.
OPTION 2: REMODEL
Once you have the ongoing support you need, take your software to the next level by adding innovative features that really move the needle.
We begin by building an interactive prototype for your application modernization project This will allow you to experience your software before building it, reducing budget risk and increasing business value.
Once we begin development, you will receive a new software release every two weeks through our Agile software development process. You can deploy your new software immediately or wait to release bigger feature sets later. We measure our fulfillment of commitments weekly – we have a 96.4% success rate, or about twice the industry average.
Finally, you receive complete transparency through regular progress reports, published at the conclusion of each two-week development cycle. This shows our progress against plan in an easy-to-understand format using hard numbers, which leaves nowhere to hide.
OPTION 3: REBUILD
In some cases, major components of your software will need to be replaced to reach your business goals. In those cases, we begin our collaboration by carefully inventorying the mission-critical software features you rely on today. Replacing software components should not equate to re-inventing the wheel. Instead, we combine the design work present in your current software with innovative new thinking to move your business forward.
We leverage the collective intelligence represented in your current application to safeguard you from the all-too-common failure of repeating past mistakes when developing new technology. Whether your software is a web application, mobile app, legacy database application, or CMS-enabled website, we can provide the legacy application modernization services and support you need today while simultaneously innovating with you for tomorrow.
