“It’s going to take too long to modernise my legacy system”
Replacing and modernising entire systems may sound like it will take a long time – but it’s not always the case. The length of a project depends on several factors – build complexity, features and functionality, user priorities and so on.
That’s why it’s important to work with a development partner that does everything possible to speed up the process, whilst maintaining high standards of quality.
For example, we use pre-built modules and systems to deliver modern software and bespoke applications, so that you can get the full benefit of using the latest, up-to-date technology. But, we also pair this with working in an agile way, so we focus on the key parts that need to be modernised, saving time.
Every project we work on is unique. You may need your system to:
- Find a balance between practicality and technical ability
- Include functional and technical knowledge so that your entire organisation knows what’s happening
- Focus on consumer results
- Find the right KPIs and provide regular feedback from sprint reviews
We analyse the key points you need your system to focus on, and carry out the most important work first.
This means you can benefit from the advantages of a new system quicker than if we used waterfall methodology, where you would only see your new system for the first time at the end of development. This way of working would add time to your build, especially if a lot of changes were required.
Plus, it saves future time wasting too.
While the initial work of modernising your system may take some time, the benefits of your new system in the long term will be huge.
For example, our development may help you gain access to user research data quicker, helping inform your business decisions faster. This way, modernising your legacy system will save you and your employees time, not add to it.
