Major Client Drivers for Modernization

Fujitsu America Legacy Modernization

Throughout the years of experience Fujitsu has in Legacy Modernization we have seen a great number of drivers which have resulted in clients requesting us to undertaken Legacy Modernization projects. Some are admittedly quite unique whilst the vast majority have common drivers which occur in many organizations.

An important point to recognize is that the majority of modernization projects occur due to business drivers such as, business opportunities or the containment of business risk. Technical drivers also have a part to play in the decision of the organization but these are less likely to be the main overarching reasons to undertake a modernization project.

There is also a great difference in the decision as to whether an organization is going to try to undertake a modernization on their own or utilize a company like Fujitsu that does this sort of work day in and day out. Modernization is different from “Business as Usual” development and maintenance and we have seen many occasions where clients come to us after they have unfortunately failed in an internal modernization project which has proved to be expensive and time consuming.
