What Is Application Modernization and Why Keep the Tech Stack Up to Date

According to Flexera report, most software products have a lifecycle of five years. It gets harder and costlier to support older software—companies may spend from $7 to $19+ million per year on legacy applications. And still deal with bugs, errors, and outages.

Application modernization may be the solution. It's the process of converting a legacy system into a modern app which helps to improve its security and scalability.

What Is Application Modernization?

Business application modernization isn’t just about rewriting an app from one programming language to another. It’s the process of converting a legacy system into a modern infrastructure, architecture, and features.

Let’s say your company uses an outdated CRM system from the times the business was relatively small. As the company grows, you may need to add new features like searchable invoice history or quick invoices to clients.

Old monolithic suits are not capable of upgrading—you’d either have to use a different tool or continue to issue invoices manually. Not to mention errors and critical issues the old software starts throwing in time.

In this case, application modernization may refer to moving to cloud-based architecture to introduce new modules and features faster, changes in the security model, and UI update.

UI/UX design often has to change to adapt to new standards and business requirements.

When we were modernizing RetailOps, a SaaS retail platform, our clients asked to make the platform easy-to-use for workers with vision issues. We reengineered the app and completely changed its UI/UX design, making the app not only performant but accessible for any employee.
