Combine Design and Systems Thinking to Overcome Legacy Drag.
There is no such thing as a steady-state any more in any form of business or application. And thus, from ‘how to keep up with business demands’ to ‘extending business capabilities’ is a paradigm shift in the management of applications that every enterprise is facing in today’s agile universe.
While conceptually everybody understands how the impact is quite fatal, when technology creates a ‘drag’ on the business. What we also need to understand, is that these changes in business environment demand the extension of business capabilities, which the enterprise systems are expected to deliver in almost real time, a challenge that’s seldom met.
Today, business leaders are asking, ‘how much my application knows my business, understands me and tells me proactively where I need to be going? And, how do we ensure that “mission critical applications” are always business-ready?’
The answer lies in our ‘Business First’ approach to “Application Life Cycle Management”. The ability to provide an all-weather reliable system that is backed by a fast-response mechanism in anticipation of tomorrow’s business needs, by building responsive, elastic, efficient, user-friendly “Mission-Critical Applications”.
No enterprise today is exempted from the higher expectations of connected consumers. ‘Business-first Applications’ are scalable, responsive and secure with high user engagement and connectivity, when compared to the dated technologies which were non-scalable, non-responsive with high risk and cost of maintenance. We can start with giving extended life to these dated technologies via slow migration and minor developments and gradually transform into a “Mission Critical Digital Application Environment, and this being a continuous process, we thereon, maintain the cycle.
