staying on trend, ahead of time
The technology world seems to change annually. Once all desktops were dumb terminals; then they became smart; then they became terminals again using remote applications. Once security happened in the basement; not it happens in the cloud. But the cloud of the 2020s isn’t the Big Iron of the 80s; there are a thousand differences. And keeping you on top of them is Strypes application modernization.
Because there’s a middle area between maintaining older apps and building brand-new applications: modernization. Software development that may use the same data sources, the same databases, the same IT infrastructure as before – but doing it better. Perhaps a code refresh; perhaps a data migration; perhaps a move to a cloud version. Whatever approach is right for you, application modernization maintains your competitive advantage as you transform your business over time. So when do you need it?
It’s great that an application has been in use for years: your people trust it and know how to get the most from it. But with the IT world changing so fast, the costs of keeping it going simply don’t make sound business sense – so it’s time for modernization. Strypes can critically assess and execute the actions needed to update your applications for the modern world, digitally transforming your organization without needing a total recreation.
Just as best practices in custom software development change over time, the expectations of end users change too. And if your frontend (the part users see and interact with) looks outdated or obsolete, you can bet they’ll be less interested in using it. Strypes understands how this happens – and has the experience to change it, updating your application’s look and feel so it fits with your users.
It happens all the time: an application works brilliantly for 500 users, the company grows and succeeds as a result, and now – boom – 10,000 people need access. But the needs of a larger user group spread around the world are different to the needs of a smaller one in a single country. To meet this part of digital transformation, Strypes is ready to help you scale – redesigning and improving your applications to serve higher demand.
Sometimes total recreation of an application isn’t an option. Perhaps there are too many dependencies, or you’re legally constrained, or the code is simply too complex to comprehend. In these cases, where risk is judged too high for a complete rip-and-replace, Strypes can modernize your existing applications without surprises – leaving the core applications in place but improving their functionality and performance.
