Challenges

Our client’s legacy system was more than two decades old and was based on out-dated technology. The existing system was not dynamic, scalable, and did not offer quick data visualization access for accurate decision-making. The company wanted a revamped system designed with the new-age and advanced software platforms to offer best-in-class User Experience. An automated and strategic report generation system for a variety of health claims was required to design the most-suited plans at affordable costs for various businesses.

Our Strategy & Solutions

Legacy Modernization

The continued process of transforming Legacy Systems aims to reduce IT environment complexity and costs, while increasing data consistency, enabling collaboration across platforms and improving process flexibility. We studied the existing system to retain and extend the legacy investment value through migration to new media. One of the major challenges was to ensure that the modernized system has similar capabilities with compatibility with existing data formats. Our developers successfully transformed the old IT system into a new digitized environment and improved business agility using the latest technologies, contributing to rapid results with reduced costs. It also added more flexibility across diverse organizational processes, according to their client requirements.
