This white paper was sponsored by Ciber and draws on Ovum’s existing research on the application modernization space as well as Ovum’s proprietary tools and databases. The views expressed in this white paper are based on Ovum’s ongoing research into the technology and services markets, including ongoing conversations with vendor, advisory, and enterprise customers.

Legacy modernization

Key messages:

  • Ovum carried out extensive research to understand the various options available to enterprises that are approaching the problem of modernizing legacy systems.
  • Our research concluded that modernization, though a very important aspect of enterprises' efforts to enable business agility and digital transformation, is often sidelined due to the high risk and high costs involved in modernizing legacy systems.
  • At best, enterprises make halfhearted, piecemeal efforts to modernize, but these do not offer optimum results.
