Application modernization has become of increasing interest to businesses, and there is growing recognition of its transformational benefits. On March 25th, 2021, NashTech hosted a workshop in cooperation with Microsoft, with the aim to bring digital modernization closer to business leaders in Vietnam.
The event was tailored to meet the needs of enterprises that wish to renovate their existing system to achieve more sustainable and efficient business outcomes. By offering an overview, as well as details on the process of digital modernization, NashTech aspires to bring about industry-leading solutions and facilitate consistent development for our clients.
This workshop also marks our first time co-hosting an event with our partner – Microsoft. We were pleased to have a chance to collaborate with Microsoft in organizing this engaging and well-versed event. This opportunity provides us with more insights into how we can strengthen our partnership and grow together.
Key takeaways from the workshop
1. What is application modernization?
Application modernization is the process of transforming existing platforms into more agile, secure and resilient applications. This transformation is accompanied by up-to-date languages, frameworks and infrastructure platforms.
Rather than eliminating or replacing an old system wholesale, application modernization allows a company to extend the lifespan of its existing application while also taking advantage of technical innovations. New and emerging technologies are incorporated into this process to facilitate a scalable and sustainable transition:
- Cloud adoption
- Evolution architecture
- System integration
- Interface modernization
- Incremental emerging tech
2. Why application modernization is coming more prevalent?
The existing applications are not ready or easy to upgrade but require enhancement to support the business needs of today, so that organisations can continue to be innovative and disruptive. This is when application modernization comes in.
Application modernization enables enterprises to effectively handle their businesses, become more accessible to their clients and intelligently tackle a range of critical business challenges. This applies to:
- Maintaining and upgrading existing systems
- Shifting to new business models
- Ensuing faster recognition and delivery of services in business
- Making the most out of the latest technologies
As a result, this process can significantly impact business growth and development through:
- Digital sales enhancement
- Increasing process efficiency
- Boosting consumer experience
- Maximising security standards
Digital modernization does not mean to replace the old applications with the new ones. We have some modernization options that gradually implement the effective upgrading journey but bring significant value to the business.
