Dealing with Legacy Systems is seen as the biggest challenge when implementing digital transformation programmes. Triad interviewed 38 IT leaders to discover what they see as the main drivers and challenges with modernising legacy infrastructure. Drivers mentioned include limited functionality, security, competition and compliance.
Pressure to change also comes from the C suite as business and IT objectives move closer together, and from millennials in the workplace and customers who expect the intuitive user experiences of modern applications. For established businesses, ditching legacy systems is not an option. A hybrid approach, using agile techniques within a motivated work environment is advocated, with a focus on the end user experience.
