APPLICATION MODERNIZATION

Most large enterprises have aging applications that surround its core systems. These applications are typically difficult to integrate, modify and maintain.


KN Professional Services provides a complete set of services with a systematic approach to rationalize organization’s portfolio and identifies applications that should be retired, consolidated or modernized in order to eliminate redundancy and improve portfolio health in a very effective manner.

Our approach defines the shortest route to value based on assessment of the existing portfolio and rationalization targets. Leveraging KN expertise, methods and tools, we help our client better manage their application portfolios. We offer a broad portfolio of application modernization services from analysis and planning through conversion and implementation.

Application rationalization is the first step in gaining control of the application portfolio. KN’s Rationalization Approach identifies unused, redundant and out of date applications and trims down the portfolio through application elimination, consolidation and modernization.  Decreasing the number of applications in the portfolio can help reduce the scope and cost of testing and remediating applications for migration projects.

KN professional services team will conduct an Application Portfolio Assessment in the beginning of engagement.  The results of an Application Portfolio Assessment:

  • A list of all applications or functions needs to be retired.
  • Comprehensive functional, technical requirement for application to be consolidated or redeveloped.
  • Recommended plan for the implementation of Consolidation and Modernization.
  • Additional opportunities for leveraging the value of application transformation.
