Legacy systems are still widely being used especially by many federal agencies. These systems are mainly slow, prone to attacks, and usually do not have the flexibility to adapt to the required changes. With cybersecurity attacks on the rise in the past few years, employing legacy systems seriously threatens critical mission programs, essential functions and daily operation of businesses and agencies. Moreover, the associated costs of maintenance and operation for legacy systems are significantly higher than their alternatives. However, modernizing legacy systems can be risky, challenging, expensive, and very resource intensive where there is no one single instant modernization solution.
To successfully modernize legacy systems a robust strategic plan is highly recommended to help businesses and agencies to consolidate their infrastructure step-by-step. Moving to cloud computing and shared services, adopting Agile development and DevOps, and modular contracting are among the steps taken by decision makers to modernize their systems.
