Application Modernization Should Be Business-Centric, Continuous and Multiplatform

white-angled

Gartner Analysts: Stefan Van Der Zijden, Thomas Klinect

"Modernization of complex, aging application portfolios tends to focus on the oldest platforms rather than on the most valuable business capabilities. This research will help application leaders adopt a business-focused, multiplatform modernization strategy to maximize value.

Key Challenges:

  • Whereas IT sees applications as the unit of management, business stakeholders value capabilities that often span multiple applications, platforms and ecosystems, which are often laden with technical debt.
  • Enterprise portfolios are far too large for a cost-effective and comprehensive inventory of all applications, in all locations, and how the applications and database are intertwined during a workflow.
  • Huge modernization programs are hard to greenlight and often fail to meet the planned outcomes with more than half never reaching the first significant program milestone."
