Legacy Modernization

Transform your legacy applications to be future-ready

Legacy systems pose significant challenges for organizations in the current digital landscape. As technology advances at an unprecedented pace, staying competitive and meeting customer expectations require businesses to overcome several obstacles. A diminishing talent pool, high cost of ownership, maintenance complexities, limited business continuity, and reduced agility hinder growth and competitiveness. The outdated technology stack and a shrinking workforce also contribute to soaring maintenance costs, impeding timely product releases and slowing down business growth and time to market.

Virtusa's Legacy Modernization solution enables businesses to accelerate their outcomes.

The transformation runs on three core pillars: discovery and assessment, migration/modernization factory and cutover phase and transition.

 A detailed two-pronged discovery and assessment also help identify functional and technical debt that helps rationalization before modernization. The discovery also facilitates cloud readiness and blockers for the portfolio under consideration. A factory model is implemented to create assembly lines for our modernization factory. Our services include:

  • Application, data, and infrastructure assessment
  • Cloud readiness assessment
  • Microservices architecture readiness assessment
  • Rehosting, refactoring, rearchitecting, replacing, or rebuilding
  • Reverse engineering and functional decomposition
  • Web-enablement
  • Database and data migration
  • Batch migration and optimization
  • Transition and support
