Application Re-Engineering

When data collected over time has a high business value, but the technology that uses the data is obsolete or out of date, application re-engineering brings new life, fresh value, and business longevity to proprietary assets.

The Supra ITS application development team of consultants, analysts and developers, has an incredible range of experience and record of success in re-imagining and re-engineering business applications. The first stage is often the most important, and engaging our Application Consultants puts an experienced perspective and valuable insights in your hands. What better place to start?

Application re-engineering can be part of an integrated, organization-level upgrade of technology resources, or a specific project with a clearly defined goal, and in each case, Supra ITS will help plan and support a seamless migration process.

Re-use it, don’t lose it.

  • Continue to extract value from data, outdated systems and investments
  • Speed-up time-to-market with fresher, faster applications and processes
  • Avoid expensive and unnecessary net-new IT implementations
  • Increase investment on strategic initiatives and technologies
  • Reduce risk exposure and lower productivity caused by obsolete applications

Remarkable re-engineering

As an extremely cost-effective method of leveraging a company’s most valuable asset – its knowledge and experience – well-directed re-engineering investments create new efficiencies and business opportunities and results.

We work with clients and help them understand where re-developing a legacy investment makes business sense. With every re-engineered application, there’s a question of its impact on current strategy: do you replace, revise, retire an architecture strategy, or do they co-exist. In more cases than not, they can happily co-exist, but our expertise will help you know the difference and make the right call.

An initial and detailed analysis will be conducted of their application environment, and identify flaws in some legacy applications while recognizing the latent potential of others. We then construct and demonstrate use cases for the shortlist of most valuable applications, including budgets, timelines, migration and business impact processes, and anticipated benefits.

Key questions

  • How will business and technology continuity be managed during migration?
  • How do I measure and manage ROI?
  • What data and metrics do I base my investment decision on?
  • How do I incorporate the strategy into the Enterprise Architecture vision?
