The application modernization market is projected to reach $16.7 billion by 2022, and according to recent data, nearly 50% of decision-makers planned to prioritize app modernization tech this year. That said, almost half of those CIOs also say that the most significant barrier to modernizing processes or systems is cost – a barrier that might pose detrimental in the future – and Modern Systems is working to help change that narrative with customers.
While the industry clearly understands how imperative it is to remain agile and modernized in the digital world, not all realize the importance of app modernization as a critical first step in that process. Brandon Edenfield, Managing Director of App Modernization for Modern Systems, an Advanced Company joins me on the podcast to further explore the topic.
Modern Systems was acquired last July by Advanced — the UK’s third-largest provider of software and services — and the two have melded to create a global modernization powerhouse. It has 35+ years under their belt transforming legacy environments, whether on the mainframe or locked in outdated UNIX environments.
It has also completed 500 application modernization projects and 2.5 billion+ lines of code. The company’s approach for the mainframe to cloud transition is an incremental one, and they leverage their unique Modernization Platform as a Service (ModPaaSTM ), a collaborative cloud-based platform.
Clients of both Advanced and Modern Systems include The New York Times, GE Capital, Hargreaves Landsdown, Deutsche Bank, the US Department of Energy, the State of Utah, and CIBC. We discuss all this and much more in today’s episode.
