Transform Legacy

We help you transform your legacy technology and applications so you can provide systems and services that meet your users' needs.

The right

We have a proven track record in helping public sector organisations to deliver.

Your legacy
techno­logy problem

Legacy applications can lead to ineffective delivery of public services. But your users expect modern systems in keeping with those found in other internet-era businesses.

Through 5 phases of landscape identification, analysis & prioritisation, re-platforming, modernisation and finally capability transformation, we help you use technology to deliver services that meet the needs of your users.

"Made Tech have supported our strategic move to public cloud. We've found the calibre of their team to be very high, and we've come to trust them to support us in complex transformation work involving changes to how we deliver software."

Dave Rogers. Chief Technology Officer at Ministry of Justice


Our approach is to make incremental changes to your legacy portfolio, to give you confidence that we're understanding needs and testing developments at each stage. 

As we progress, you start reclaiming the time, money and effort your organisation was putting into the old way of doing things. Throughout the process, your systems are kept secure, resilient and compliant.

Planning is vital to execute any significant application transformation initiative. We work with you to define the incremental steps that move your systems towards cloud maturity as well as increase the automation in your software development lifecycle (SDLC).

Our approach is not only to upgrade your legacy systems but also to teach your team so that they have the skills to manage and optimise your updated portfolio.

Phases of legacy application transformation

Made Tech defines 5 phases that transform legacy applications into to cloud-native systems. In each phase, the cloud maturity of your application portfolio increases, as measured against our 36 maturity factors​.

Landscape identification

We start by rapidly mapping out the application estate, identifying the underlying technologies and dependencies on which the applications run. This helps us to draw a picture of your technology estate, marking out areas of complexity and identifying where we can make "quick wins".

Analysis & prioritisation

Next, we run analysis to score each application against 36 maturity factors. We plot these on a quadrant map to show business value versus technical effort. This helps us identify and agree on candidate legacy applications to move forward with.

Re-platforming applications

The next phase moves a set of legacy applications to a cloud platform. This is quick – taking weeks, not months. Re-platformed apps often don't yet comply with all 36 maturity factors.


The cloud maturity of re-platformed apps improves and larger, more complex apps are transformed. More complex, nonfunctional requirements, such as performance, security and compliance, are also addressed in this phase.

Capability transformation

The final phase involves helping your organisation to align around small, cross-functional teams that deliver software products from idea to production using a cloud-native approach. We coach your teams in the modern practices we've used, so they can be self-sufficient.
