Frequently Asked Questions

Provided below is an FAQ to help you understand our services in more detail. If your question is not covered please feel free contact us.

Legacy Software Modernisation refers to the process of updating and upgrading existing, older software systems. These systems may still function effectively but often struggle to interact with newer technologies. Modernisation can range from minor upgrades to full system overhauls. Here at Software Development UK, we take a balanced approach to ensure your modernised software delivers the functionality you need without unnecessary disruption.

As technology progresses, older software systems may become incompatible with new technologies or fail to meet evolving security standards. Modernising legacy software enables businesses to keep pace with industry changes, increase operational efficiency, improve user experience and reduce maintenance costs.

While modernisation has many benefits, it can also pose risks. These can include data loss, unexpected downtime, compatibility issues, and overspending. A well-planned modernisation strategy, like the ones we design at Software Development UK, can mitigate these risks.

The duration of a modernisation project depends on the complexity of the legacy system, the desired functionality of the updated system, and the modernisation strategy used. On average, projects can take a few weeks to several months.

There are several strategies for software modernisation, including rehosting, replatforming, refactoring, rearchitecting, rebuilding, or replacing. The best strategy depends on your specific needs, resources, and the nature of your legacy system.

Modernisation can streamline business operations by automating manual processes, integrating disjointed systems, improving data accessibility, and enhancing user experience. It can also reduce maintenance costs and decrease system downtime.

Choosing a software modernisation service requires consideration of their expertise, track record, understanding of your industry, and the technologies they work with. Software Development UK stands out by ensuring a tailored approach to your unique business needs.

Challenges in modernising legacy software include understanding the existing system, ensuring data security during the transition, managing downtime, compatibility issues, and securing stakeholder buy-in. A well-managed project can overcome these challenges.

The cost of software modernisation varies based on the size and complexity of your legacy system, the modernisation strategy chosen, and the desired features of your new system. In the long run, however, modernisation can lead to significant cost savings by reducing maintenance costs and improving operational efficiency.

Preparation includes conducting a thorough system analysis, setting clear objectives, establishing a realistic budget and timeline, securing stakeholder buy-in, and choosing a reliable modernisation service. With Software Development UK, we ensure that each step is carefully planned to ensure a smooth transition.
