Legacy modernization business drivers


Legacy applications often have a negative impact on business responsiveness. Since “lift and shift” programs are often expensive, risky, and time-consuming, enterprises require a more systematic and iterative approach to legacy modernization.

A data product approach to legacy application modernization delivers quick time to value at minimal risk. Here are 3 key business drivers:

1. More for less
Legacy application modernization is a cost-effective and efficient way for enterprises to reap the benefits of newer, and more flexible, architectures, platforms, and tools.

2. Less is more
When a system is modernized to a microservices architecture, components are smaller, and more loosely coupled. They can also be deployed, and scaled, independently of one another.

3. Agility = value
Modernized applications can deliver value more quickly, thanks to more agile development and maintenance cycles. They’re also simpler, and more affordable, to operate.

K2View Data Product Platform

A revolutionary approach
to legacy modernization

product platform small@150x-80

K2View Data Product Platform continually syncs, transforms, and serves data via data products. Real-time data products deliver a trusted view of any business entity, such as a customer, order, supplier, or device.

Every data product integrates a specific entity’s data from all relevant source systems, into its own, secure, high-performance Micro-Database™. It also ensures that the Micro-Database is always current with fresh data, and instantly accessible to authorized data consumers across the enterprise.


Digital decoupling

K2View Data Product Platform lets you systematically decouple the data from your legacy systems.

Once data products are created, software teams can incrementally develop new functionality based on the data products and their APIs. When the new functionality is deployed, its legacy counterpart can be retired, with the Micro-Databases operating as the database of record for the new functionality.

By adopting a data product approach, organizations can decouple their legacy apps from their data, moving critical functionality and data to the cloud, as needed.

Look to application modernization

For many organizations, legacy systems are seen as holding back the business initiatives and business processes that rely on them. When a tipping point is reached, application leaders must look to application modernization to help remove the obstacles.
