As your business and technology evolve, it’s important to stay on the lookout for new tech solutions that best suit your needs. In some cases, your company will need to clean house and start from scratch. Other times, you may just need to simply upgrade your current technology. If the latter is the case for you, you’ll need a plan to update your existing tech stack with minimal interruptions to your current workflow. Here’s what Ascendle CEO, Dave Todaro, suggests for legacy system modernization.
Upgrade a Little at a Time
“ ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ Identify small, discrete parts of the technology platform that can be upgraded. Leveraging contemporary cloud technology and microservices can be very helpful in allowing a clean separation of the old from the new. Finally, be sure to prioritize business value. Many legacy features are likely not leveraged by a majority of your users.” – Dave Todaro, Ascendle
