The client was facing a challenge with their legacy applications, which were costing them more to maintain than the more modern elements of their portfolio. The majority of their IT budget was being consumed by the maintenance spend, leaving little room for innovation and growth.
Legacy applications are outdated software systems that are no longer supported by their vendors and can be challenging to maintain. As a result, legacy applications often require more time, money, and resources to keep running than modern applications. This can create a burden on a company’s IT budget and limit their ability to invest in new technology or initiatives.
In this case, the client recognized the need for modernization of their legacy applications to reduce maintenance costs and free up resources for innovation. By modernizing their legacy applications, they could improve their operational efficiency and competitiveness, and ensure that their IT budget was being used effectively.
