Application Modernization Strategy

Define innovative ways to extend the life of the application portfolio, gain agility, mitigate risk and lower total cost of ownership.


Business leaders have never been under greater pressure to do more with less. But improving competitiveness and corporate agility while 70 percent of a typical organization's global transactions run on legacy applications is an ongoing challenge. Having an application modernization strategy may be the answer. An efficient, up-to-date application portfolio can drive business results and support innovation while keeping costs under control.
