Legacy Application Modernization FAQs
The following are several classic signs of legacy software suffering from a high level of technical debt:
Every legacy system is different, but there is often one tier (often the data tier) that can be kept and evolved. From time to time more is possible depending on your needs and budget. At MercuryWorks, we’ll work with you through the discovery and assessment phases to minimize reinventing the wheel. If there are parts that are working well in your current application, they can definitely stay.
When it comes to software, we recommend that you leave the Big Bang to science class. A paced and concerted effort over time wins the day here. We can help you prioritize high-impact changes first and iterate over time. This means less downtime and faster time to ROI for you.
First, we can rearchitect a monolithic legacy application into smaller, independent units called microservices, which carry out functions independently. This reduces time for maintenance and troubleshooting and makes adding features easier moving forward. Second, legacy systems often don’t allow for modern test automation. During the modernization process, we implement unit and integration tests so you’ll know right away when you break something in the future.
