Monoliths Are Massively Complex
in All the Wrong Ways
Although mission-critical for many businesses, legacy systems are costly, risky, and time consuming—and that’s just to keep the lights on.
Simplify with a low-code legacy migration
Low-code development presents a clear, streamlined path to legacy migration.

How else can legacy systems be modernized?
Migrating legacy applications and processes may not be the right choice for every organization, but there are two other options to consider.
You can opt to extend the capabilities of your legacy system, which is ideal for those with core systems that still function as needed. Extending allows you to maintain your core system while you build new, modern processes and applications without disrupting current operations.
Replacing a legacy system is another option. This can be a time-intensive investment since it involves completely replacing your legacy system, but in many situations replacement can be the best option in the long run.
