The significance of IT has shifted strongly in recent years. The method of working has moved away from the reactive provision of technical resources and support, transforming into an “enabler” role. With the aid of IT, companies can deliver precious added value, which is essential to prevail in the face of competition. Above all, this added value includes software, hardware, data centers, cloud provision and securing expanding flows of data.
IT utilizes end-to-end IT modernization to create the prerequisites for recruiting new skilled staff, as devices and software provide key evidence of the status of digitalization within a company.
Legacy applications constitute the greatest challenge on the path to digitalization. In many companies there are specialized applications in use that have been adapted and optimized for precisely these work approaches and internal processes. Old applications (legacy apps) are often unable to keep pace with the transition in IT, suffering from performance weaknesses and a lack of interfaces in the new systems. The increasing requirements of contemporary data collection and processing as well as evaluation has either left the apps bloated or resulted in isolated applications, as workarounds are required.
