Why Do I Need to Modernize My Software?

Top 8 indicators of when it’s time for modernization

  1. Complicated interface

    The software does the job, but users complain about the interface, spend too much time doing trivial things, or cannot locate features.

  2. Performance is unacceptably slow

    The software is functional, but as the number of users grew, or the database became bigger, it started to work unacceptably slowly.

  3. Bugs

    The software is mostly working, but there are bugs the previous team cannot fix.

  4. Self-made prototype

    The software is a self-made prototype. Now you need a “professional” version.

  5. Not finalized project

    The software is partially functional. The team who started on it is unable to continue, or you have decided to replace them.

  6. Old version of CMS

    The software is built on the older version of the CMS. A user wants to benefit from the new features, but custom modules are written in such a way that they cannot be upgraded easily.

  7. New features are needed

    The software is working fine, but needs new features added and the previous team is not available.

  8. Legacy software

    The software is outdated and needs drastic improvement in a situation where you can’t simply replace it with new software.

Milestones in Modernizing Legacy Software

Important steps we take:


The first and most distinct part of the job is analysis. The deliverables are:

  • functional specification
  • technical specification
  • test plan

Project Proposal

On completion of the analysis phase, we are ready to come up with a project proposal and estimate the work that has to be done. The project proposal includes:

  • project assumptions
  • project team
  • detailed project estimate
  • hourly rates of specialists
  • timeline

Software Modernization

In most cases we will offer the Agile development approach based on SCRUM methodology. Depending on the project, typical changes include:

  • user interface transformation
  • code refactoring
  • extension of capabilities

Quality Assurance and Support

Besides standard quality assurance procedures, our documents everything in sufficient detail and in an easily accessible form for developers and other stakeholders.
