Modernizing old software to work in line with the business today.
Your business is running on an outdated set of systems that manage your in-house operations. Your internal collaboration tools are used sparingly and your employees end up using their own forms of communication. There's no centralized document repository for you to manage workflows and revisions.
Odds are, you're running a set of outdated legacy software systems that are no longer meeting the needs of your business. This scenario is all too common today – business across the world are moving rapidly just to barely keep up with trends in mobility, security, and cloud infrastructure.
Legacy System Migrations (Overhauls, Modernizations) tend to happen infrequently within businesses – but when they do occur, it's an expansive effort. At SwipeTrack, we work with businesses that realize overhauling their existing technologies is just as much about educating their end users as it is about adding new features.
Whether you're doing a partial or complete move from one system to another, you'll need to migrate massive amounts of valuable corporate data from one system to the next.
BUSINESS PROCESS TRANSFORMATION
New software is only half the battle. New systems, by default, should rethink how your business gets done. That means taking the time to analyze your existing strengths and inefficiencies to use your tech for growth.
Out-of-the-box software eliminates the need to build everything custom. Using off-the-shelf CRMs, CMSes, and other products will decrease your software costs, go-to-market time, and ultimately, your risks of failure.
The best software in the world doesn't guarantee that your employees will use it. Training users, socializing new platforms, and ultimately, having a protocol for rapid feedback and response ensures you don't suffer from dreaded software abandonment.
SERVICES ORIENTED ARCHITECTURE
By architecting your solution with scalable pathways to growth, expansion, modification, and alteration, you can ensure that you don't ever have to re-write your technologies from scratch. SOA allows you to do this with much less risk of software obsolescence.
Rather than removing key systems all at once, the gradual removal of legacy systems, combined with the gradual incorporation of new platforms ensures that a more phased approach to replacing an older system increases your chances of success.
