Why Does Your Business Need Application Modernization?

Application Modernization is the practice of updating legacy applications by modernizing their frameworks, internal architectures, platform infrastructures and features. By integrating upgraded functionalities and enhanced features, application modernization revamps existing legacy applications and helps them function well.

A report by Markets and Markets says the global application modernization services market size is expected to grow from USD 11.4 billion in 2020 to USD 24.8 billion by 2025, i.e., 16.8% CAGR.

Scaling legacy applications and adding new features becomes complicated as the application or the software tends to become obsolete and outdated. This inability to integrate with upgraded functionality and new systems can affect the overall growth and expansion of businesses that use legacy applications.

Modernizing applications and legacy systems can propose multiple benefits, such as reduced operational costs, better scalability, improved customer experience and enhanced product value. Here are a few important reasons why enterprises opt for app modernization.

1. Provides the ability to add new features

Application modernization provides the ability to integrate new features and services that align with the business’s goals and objectives in a better way. Adding new features allows businesses to personalize their apps thus ensuring that legacy applications continue to deliver value.

2. Improves the productivity of developers

Application modernization helps in improving developers’ productivity as they now can save time by working with easy to use technology. App modernization eliminates reduced tedious chores of dealing with outdated features and obsolete technology by automating tasks and eliminating repetitive processes. It also helps in removing Microservices challenges during migration to the cloud.

3. Enhances customer experience
