IBMi Application Modernization

Why Modernize Applications? 

Poor management of technical debt affects the ability to compete

  • Complications created by outdated systems can make integrating new products and capabilities prohibitively costly
  • Hidden challenges in the system architecture can cause projects to miss deadlines, run over budget, and perhaps even fail to operate as desired

Technical Debt can account for up to 40% of the IT Balance Sheet

  • The sum of all work needed to modernize the entire Information technology stack represents the “Principal” on the IT Balance Sheet
  • The “Interest” is the cost to navigate nonstandard interfaces, and in your ability to adjust to evolving business needs
  • The “Opportunity Loss” arises from employees spending time managing tired complex systems, instead of innovating for future needs

In a recent McKinsey survey:

  • CIOs reported that 10 to 20 percent of the technology budget dedicated to new products is diverted to resolving issues related to tech debt.
  • CIOs estimated that tech debt amounts to 20 to 40 percent of the value of their entire technology estate before depreciation.
  • And things are not improving, 60 percent of the CIOs we surveyed felt their organization’s tech debt had risen perceptibly over the past three years
