Legacy systems have limits
A decades-old legacy system might still function as intended, but it wasn’t built with the modern enterprise’s needs in mind.
From developing scalable apps and automating processes, to building customer portals and beyond, modernization is a constant challenge when you’re reliant on systems that can’t adapt to changing business needs.
On the road to legacy modernization, you don’t need to ditch your old systems at the first rest stop. Low-code development helps you build the modern apps and functionalities your business has been waiting for, without disrupting the current operations of your mission-critical legacy systems.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I upgrade my legacy systems?
In some situations, maintaining a core legacy system makes the most sense. Modern technology, like low-code development, enables you to build modern apps and functionalities that connect to your core system.
This allows you to keep your legacy system running as needed while extending its capabilities and avoiding a massive system replacement project.
Should I extend or replace my legacy systems?
If your organization’s legacy systems and applications are still performing as needed, you can choose to extend their capabilities instead of completely replacing them. Replacement is recommended if legacy systems become risky and costly and no longer perform as required.
