Modernization requires more than just technology change
If you modernize your capabilities like-for-like by moving them to a new platform, all of the existing complexity, issues and limitations will move to the new platform with them. Instead, teams must reimagine their capabilities and build what they really need today.
Programs should be tightly aligned to business goals
All too often, modernization programs aren’t tied to the right goals, or given the right measures of success. To deliver the right value, programs need to be built around desired outcomes that really matter to the organization, its people and its customers.
Think in terms of capabilities, not applications
Thinking in terms of apps leads to like-for-like modernization, which provides limited value. Instead, teams should think about the capabilities they need. That enables them to cut unnecessary apps, rebuild relevant ones and use off-the-shelf tech where appropriate to reduce time to market.
