Action on legacy software

Make the right decision to get your Legacy Systems up to date.

Is your software holding you back?  Is your technology a driver of change, or is it limiting you in the progress you would like to make?

If your technology did a great job supporting the organisation in the past, but it has problems supporting your future strategy, you might have Legacy software.

Legacy software is technology that was conceived and built in a distant past. It did a good job supporting business-critical processes before but now it is holding back innovation.

For many types of Legacy software, it becomes more and more challenging to support, or integrate with new systems because of its outdated design and structure. Moreover, the software can no longer handle current and upcoming innovations, while customers are continuously increasing their expectations and demands.

If your company’s IT systems are starting to become an inhibiting factor that affects your business, it means that you have to take action.

Plan of Action for Legacy Software

The solution for your Legacy System by Trifork

At Trifork, we develop and implement customised solutions for Legacy systems. We understand the uniqueness of every situation that we deal with, this is why we have developed a solution process distinctive and applicable to different business needs.

Our solution will be custom made based on your current situation and the strategy that your organisation has, by reassuring that your upgraded systems will serve your strategy and will be able to deliver.

We are well aware of the obstacles of Legacy systems in relation to the needs and requirements set by modern customers, clients in the global market. These insights are analysed alongside your companys’ requirements, that enable us to make your systems both future and business ready.

We offer a variety of high-end services for actioning on the different kinds and forms of legacy systems. The solutions will be custom made based on your current situation and the strategy your organisation has.


We start the process by doing a thorough review of your current systems. During this review, we discuss with you the technology and functionalities that you need in order to support your strategy for now and the future, knowing that your solutions should be flexible and scalable.

Together we review the software in 3 steps:

Step 1
We map an overview of your IT landscape where we identify the strategic and operational domains
Step 2
We identify the top 3 – 5 most inhibiting factors/systems/ and/or (lack of) functionality
Step 3
We create a plan of action in which we include the process from prioritisation till implementation

During this process, we partner with you and see what the options are to update the system, and what the optimal process would be within your organisation, depending on available resources, reaction to change and adoption of new systems and interfaces.

With the completion of the review steps and after careful consideration of all parameters relevant within your organisation, we will suggest one of the following directions.

Construction: The existing system remains intact, but instead of allowing users or other systems to be used directly from the system, a layer is built around the current system for the parts where innovation is most needed.

Partial Rebuilding: Parts of the existing system are being rebuilt in separate applications. A large part of the existing system remains intact, but some parts of the old system are “carved” for new functionality. the new landscape will be future-proof.

Modernisation: By making the right adjustments your current systems can reach a new level of supporting functionality and new development can be supported faster and safer.

The Big Bang: Full replacement of the system that includes new functionalities that require new system capabilities.

Once we have gone through both the review process and the final selection of the available solutions for your company, we can then progress with its implementation. At Trifork, we make sure that every implemented solution works with the parameters and needs defined at the beginning of the project. In this way, you can rest assured that your new technology situation will align with your set goals, capable of pinnacle performance both for the present and into the future.
