Take a strategic step to solve legacy system issues

Transparity can help you to re-imagine your enterprise applications making them once again fit for purpose.

With enterprise technology being an ever-evolving landscape, it proves cost-effective to modernise legacy systems to benefit from newer innovations and increase business agility. As important as the modernisation itself, is the team you task with the responsibility of implementing it.

We understand that the cloud is not feasible for every organisation, with IT assets perhaps sitting behind corporate firewalls, or highly regulated and very proprietary. Our strong foundation in on-premises technology means that we can cater for every enterprise need, cloud or otherwise. 

Our experts will help you determine the right path to modernisation and implement the latest in Microsoft enterprise technologies, wherever it resides.

We offer a range of application innovation services, including custom software development, application integration, and application managed services. Contact us today to see how we can help you.

“The Royal Horticultural Society’s objective was to create a cloud-based integration platform to leverage data across the organization and integrate IT systems. 

Transparity worked with RHS to design and deliver the RHS Integration platform that underpins our first application using Microsoft Azure. The Digital Membership App has been a great success for the RHS, eliminating paper forms and moving to a native digital solution.

Transparity delivered a quality solution that was built on time and within budget.  The best practice solution was clearly documented and the internal development team fully trained for ongoing support and maintenance.  Transparity was a great partner and we would actively seek their participation in future projects”

The Advantages of Application Modernisation

Optimize and Modernize your Legacy Systems for Modern Business.

Companies across all industries are facing an ever more competitive market. With newer, more modern and often cloud-based products and services regularly dominating the market. Your traditional system, though excellent in its time has now become an outdated legacy application. Patches which worked in the short-term have now created slows and incompatibilities. The functionality of your system is being compromised and you need to do something about it.

As technology advances, consumers and employees alike expect smoother interfacing, better performance, faster transactions and larger data requirements. Simultaneously data and privacy standards have increased. In short, out-of-date legacy systems can risk your spot in the marketplace.

Application Modernisation is the strategic step organisations are taking to solve legacy system issues. Though all enterprises have different application modernisation needs, the outcome will always be a smoother system and better functionality with easier maintenance and scaling.

What is application modernisation?

Application modernisation is a process of updating a business’s current applications to a cloud-first model. It’s also known as legacy modernisation, and is designed to take advantage of technical innovations and extend the lifespan of an organisation’s current apps.

What is the goal of application modernisation?

There are several goals of application modernisation, including:

  • To update existing applications so they benefit from technological innovations
  • To increase security, efficiency, structural integrity, and more
  • To improve user experience

What businesses would benefit from application modernisation?

Businesses that benefit most from application modernisation are those that have significant investments, both financially and operationally, in an outdated application portfolio. In such cases, organisations are often unwilling to retire their applications and start again, as the costs can be too high. Application modernisation offers an alternative solution where organisations can update their legacy systems to benefit from more modern technology without the need to start from the beginning.

Features of successful application modernisation processes:

  • Reliability
