FAQ on Modernisierung

What opportunities does software modernisation offer?

Modernising software offers many opportunities that go far beyond a simple update. Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Competitiveness: Implementing new technologies and features can give you an edge over your competitors.
  • Increased efficiency: Modernised software can automate processes and optimise workflows, leading to increased productivity.
  • Cost savings: Improved system performance and reduced maintenance can save you money in the long run.
  • Scalability: Modern software architectures are often more scalable, allowing your business to adapt flexibly to market changes and growth.
  • Security: Modernised software tends to be more secure and better protected against today’s threats.
  • Customer focus: Modernisation can introduce new customer-centric features that improve the user experience and increase customer loyalty.
  • Compliance: Modernising software makes it easier to comply with current regulations and standards.

Our modernisation workshops provide an ideal format to help you assess opportunities, identify and implement meaningful modernisation actions early, and embed modernisation as an ongoing process within your organisation.

What is the difference between software modernisation and software migration?

Although the terms software modernisation and software migration are often used interchangeably, strictly speaking there are differences. While software modernisation is about revising and improving the existing system, software migration is about moving to a completely new platform or technology. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages.

We will be happy to advise you on which strategy is best suited to your organisation.

Can I partially modernise my existing software?

Yes, partial modernisation is usually possible and is often a cost-effective way to improve the performance and security of your software.

You can read more about this in our blog post «Why software modernisation is often the best solution» (in German).

How do I measure the success of software modernisation?

The success of software modernisation can be measured using various KPIs and indicators. Some KPIs for measuring success are listed below:

  • Performance improvement: Monitoring system performance before and after modernisation to determine if there are improvements in performance, reliability and efficiency
  • Cost savings: Analysing operating costs before and after the modernisation to determine if the modernisation has resulted in cost savings.
  • User satisfaction: Conducting user surveys or analysing user feedback to assess the impact of the modernisation on the user experience.
  • Security improvements: Reviewing security protocols and measures to determine if the modernisation has improved system security.
  • Scalability: Evaluate the system’s ability to handle increasing demands as an indicator of successful modernisation.
  • ROI (Return on Investment): Calculating the ROI by comparing the cost of modernisation with the benefits achieved to assess the economic viability of the project.
  • Economic objectives: Checking whether the modernisation has helped to achieve specific business objectives, such as increased sales, improved customer loyalty or new product launches.
