UPTO: UPDATING LEGACY SYSTEMS

RECOVER THE AGILITY OF YOUR STRATEGIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Many of the information systems operating in organizations, especially in the most complex ones, do not integrate the most recent technological developments. The fear of evolving is associated with the risk of losing functions that have been introduced in the system. And though this system is technologically outdated, it is adjusted to the organizational reality and, therefore, fundamental to the business. In the past, it was often this now obsolete system that gave the organization competitive advantages. By keeping with the organization’s practices and culture, the system is an asset but lacks flexibility.

Almost all IT budgets are still captured today by the operation and maintenance costs (OPEX) of old/obsolete information systems. This prevents investment in innovation (CAPEX) and removes competitiveness, efficiency, and agility from organizations.

obsolete systems costs

In addition to the high financial costs, there are other significant costs of maintaining obsolete systems:

  • Increased risk of security breaches
  • Demotivated employees
  • Productivity with breaks
  • Deficient customer service
  • The reputation of the organization is negatively affected
  • Difficulty in analyzing data
  • Limited innovation due to lack of flexibility

Through Genio, Quidgest ensures that an organization’s obsolete information system is recreated with all its features. It also provides a peaceful and secure transition from outdated technological platforms to the latest technologies without losing its overall coherence and functionality.

UPTO (Updating Obsolete Technological Platforms) is a controlled process of automatic development that creates the conditions for the rapid technological evolution of information systems. UPTO overcomes the usual restrictions and constraints in this type of transition, which are estimated to be responsible for losses of millions of euros: in arrears, in data loss, in the inadequacy of the system, in reduced productivity, periods of inactivity, and in hidden costs.

Through UPTO it is possible to:

  • Maintain existing processes, business rules, and practices to ensure your employees and customers can keep working as usual.

  • Mimic the old system’s interfaces and functionality by creating the relevant models and automatically generating it. The user interface can also be upgraded to create a more intuitive experience for users.

  • Have the new solution accessible on any web platform, ensuring a smooth transition for customers, and able to evolve with changing business needs and customer demands. 

UPTO is supported by Genio and the rest of Quidgest’s technological system, based on the latest generation platforms. It guarantees the replacement of technological platforms of expensive maintenance, dependent on a single person or difficult evolution.

The transition takes place using the stored data and improving the functionality of the old system. UPTO migrates technologically obsolete solutions in practice, recreating them with all their features in the most modern technologies, architectures, programming languages, and development methodologies.
