Maintaining and supporting legacy systems, together with the inability to manage potential risks of retiring aging systems, are typical challenges faced by organizations. Keeping such systems up and running requires skilled resources in legacy technologies which are hard to find in today’s IT world. As a result, the IT landscape in organizations becomes cluttered and prevents business agility and innovation. Therefore, it’s high time to modernize your IT landscape to foster a better business environment.
With this in mind, we wanted to find out what drives the need for modernization of your IT landscape and how to succeed with a system migration. A Lumera Pulse survey was sent to 1 500 recipients working in the Life and Pensions industry in Europe.
With the lack of the right technology, businesses risk losing both customers and market share. However, modernization is challenging and when facing a system migration, the road can seem long and complicated. There may be concerns that the project will be more time-consuming and expensive than planned, and the fear of changing the system often causes businesses to postpone the decision until the situation with an outdated system becomes unsustainable.
But system migration shouldn’t be viewed as a necessary evil, rather a fantastic opportunity to boost innovation and efficiency. The use of modern technology in the operations and development of products and services will bring significant USPs to life and pensions providers’ products and services and enable features that competitors lack to satisfy the customer needs and expectations.
So how can you get started with modernization? Getting help from a Lumera, with migration expertise and a proven track record of successful transformation at scale, will give you access to more integrations and automated processes, as well as the very best conditions for building up the business of tomorrow.
