Definition IT modernization

The digital world is developing without interruption and new requirements are being created continuously – this particularly affects company IT infrastructures. System landscapes that have grown historically are often no longer able to fulfil strategic company expectations. Over the years in many organizations application landscapes have been constantly amended and enhanced. They now represent rigid structures. Complex interfaces, insufficient and opaque documentation as well as outdated development environments and obsolete technologies are a clear indication of the need to act.

IT modernization adapts systems to the requirements of digitization. The aims of a modernization strategy are often to restore corporate flexibility, to increase turnover and to reduce costs.

Fundamentally, modernization means the breaking open of outdated structures in order to re-design them to provide more dynamism, flexibility and efficiency. The modernization of IT systems goes hand-in-hand with the migration of legacy systems: in today’s world IT modernization and IT migration are unavoidable.
