Challenge creates opportunity, and with the new abundance of opportunities for IT - now is certainly not the time to take your foot off the pedal. IT has the chance to shine as the enablers of a remote workforce, maintaining operations and becoming closer to the business than ever before. And for many – IT teams and leaders have seized the opportunity to modernize and innovate in a time of uncertainty. There is a need for many organizations to shift business models to remain afloat and competitive.
Mike Fitzgerald, Chief Innovation Officer at SoftwareONE, says, "More and more, we are seeing organizations reach out for support in overhauling legacy applications, shifting business models to engage with new customer bases, and driving innovation. IT leaders have the opportunity to be the catalyst for change, innovating business models to drive new revenue streams and create new customer experiences."
Legacy applications and infrastructure lack the responsiveness to meet the needs of an organization in times of change. Therefore, application modernization is necessary to facilitate flexibility, agility, and integration of technologies to drive future growth and foster innovation. This is just one example of modernization that we are seeing.
