What strategy is best for your organisation to take for modernising legacy applications? In this post, we introduce 3 strategies, their benefits, and issues you may encounter.
I’m really pleased to announce the launch of our latest book, Modernising legacy applications in the public sector. We have written the book to share our experience of successful legacy application transformations with technology leaders working across the UK public sector.
After you have mapped your application ecosystem as best as you can, you should begin work on prioritising which applications to modernise first.
