Six Step Framework for IBM Software Modernisation

Optimised Software
= Optimised Business

Software applications are the backbone of modern businesses. Finding and implementing the best solutions is key to being successful. However, it doesn’t end there. 

Leading businesses don’t just invest in buying software. They understand that software needs continuous maintenance and modernisation. Applications that were best-of-class a few years ago are unlikely to still add optimal value to your business – unless you modernise and optimise them.

We can help you determine if your software solutions are still fit for purpose and identify the most significant opportunities for improvement.

Our Approach to Modernisation​

We apply a proven six-step framework to help you modernise your software applications. ​Importantly, this approach is designed to make the most of what you already have. We don’t want you to spend money on replacing something that’s working. Instead, we work with you to identify those areas where investments will result in the biggest returns.

​Throughout the process, we will bring in members from our partner ecosystem with capability in Data AI, Automation, Security and Asset Management, to ensure you have the most experienced people working for you. ​

Discovering Opportunities

Getting clear about where you are. And where you want to go.

We start the Modernisation journey by learning about your business, ambition and current software applications. Through a series of workshops, exercises and discussions with relevant team members, we determine the status quo and discover high-level opportunities for optimisation.

Ideating the Future​

Coming up with ideas – big and small – to deliver the best value.

Once we have discovered where you are at, and understand your requirements, we shift into brainstorming mode. We work with you to ideate what the ideal future solution for your business could look like. In this phase, the sky is the limit, and all ideas are worth exploring.

Building out Options

Scoping the details of different options to make an informed decision.

Ideas are great, but sooner or later, they need to be brought into reality. That’s what the Build phase is all about. We take the best ideas identified in the previous step and scope out the details, including cost, timeframes, pros and cons, and more. With that information in hand, you will be well equipped to make the best decision. 

In this phase, we often bring in other players from our Partner Ecosystem to provide you with the very best advice and solutions.

Futuring

Looking ahead into the future.

It’s easy to assume that displaying the solution would be the end of the engagement. However, there is one more important step in our modernisation journey: Futuring

In this phase, we look ahead to identify opportunities as well as risks to ensure your software solutions are best-in-class – not just today but for years to come.
