success factors for IT modernisation

– Strategy and cooperation are key

A modern and accessible IT environment is a prerequisite for running a fast-paced and flexible business. At the same time, many companies are struggling to keep up with the rapid technological development. Therefore, a successful IT modernisation requires a clear plan and strategy – and that all relevant stakeholders are involved in the process.

For a successful transformation project, it’s important that your business units, development teams, data teams, security teams, infrastructure and operations teams work together. The goal is to create digital platforms that are customer-centric and deliver clear business results.

Strategic alignment is key to a successful outcome. Let your organisation’s goals for growth, innovation and customer experience lead the way and align your IT investments accordingly. In other words, start with projects that have high business value.

Get it right from the start

Start with a thorough inventory of the existing IT landscape. Which systems are outdated? Where are the gaps in security, performance, and scalability? For this inventory, we recommend Nexer’s automated software, which you can read more about here.

The next step is to set up an it modernisation strategy. Which systems should be decommissioned, and which existing systems and applications can be updated? The goal is to improve performance, security, and user experience, while at the same time optimally managing and analysing your business data. When in doubt, let the lifetime cost of the application guide your decision.

Ten tips for a successful IT modernisation

There are many aspects to consider for an IT modernisation project. Once you have set the strategy and taken stock of your IT landscape, it’s time to consider if cloud-based IT, microservices architecture and containerisation are a good fit for your business. It’s also important to invest in cybersecurity and, not least, employee skills development.

Many businesses still have older legacy systems. These are expensive to maintain and it is difficult to maintain competence on systems built with outdated technology.

To modernise these systems, we recommend a four-step approach:
  • 1. Business process: Focus on the main process and identify dependencies to related processes.
  • 2. Data: What data is created by the process and owned by the main process? What data is distributed by other processes?
  • 3. System: What systems/functions are used within the framework of the main process, as well as to create and store data owned by the process?
  • 4. Integration points: What integrations are required for the main process to receive the necessary data, or to release data to other systems?
