In todays business, you need to rapidly adapt to change, achieve more with fewer resources driven by data, and work in a compliant manner. Modernizing your application landscape boosts your business innovation and keeps you ahead of the competition.

The importance of a modern application landscape

You aim to attract and retain customers with the latest products both now and in the future. At the same time, digital tools should optimally support your employees. This calls for an agile organization with a modern application landscape. It enables faster development of digital products and leverages data for value creation. This allows you to respond quickly to market changes, enhance customer experiences, and anticipate the future based on hard data. Moreover, it increases operational efficiency, reduces IT costs, and, most importantly, gives a boost to your business processes. 

Reasons for application innovation

Many organizations have one foot in the cloud while the other is constrained by traditional technology. It’s crucial to move forward and modernize your technological engine. Map your app landscape, update your applications and architecture, enabling your entire organization to work more efficiently and securely. How? Fully embrace cloud technology. Macaw is ready to accelerate your digital transformation through our proven MACH architecture. 

It’s people adding value with technology

Technology serves as a prerequisite, but it’s your employees who add value. This requires a well-coordinated partnership between business and IT within an innovative culture. We guide your organization and employees to leverage tools for maximum productivity, resulting in distinctive customer and employee experiences. 

Better and faster alignment with market demands

When your digital infrastructure is solid, everyone works with cloud-native apps, and all data sources are connected. For instance, building low-code and no-code apps with Power Platform is up to 8 times faster than traditional programming. As a result, your services and products align much faster and better with market demands. 

Sustainable data-driven work

With modern apps, employees accomplish more work, experience higher satisfaction, reduce IT management burden, and improve continuity. By bringing together data sources and discovering correlations, you continuously streamline business processes and identify new opportunities. This ensures your organization remains agile at all times. 

Macaw’s approach

Not fully transitioned to cloud technology yet? We are here to guide you with our successful, structured methodology. We identify the 6 R’s, each representing a possible application migration strategy applicable to all applications. We investigate the scenario that best suits your applications, creating a balanced application landscape. The 6 R’s are:  

  • Rehost 
  • Replatform 
  • Repurchase 
  • Retire 
  • Retain 
  • Refactor 

    Working based on added value through these six scenarios, we map your application landscape. Depending on technical and business characteristics, we determine the best way to continue or discontinue an application’s lifecycle. After the inventory, we create a plan, always focusing on added value. It outlines the care applications require to best support the business, minimize costs, and remain compliant. Many organizations quickly accumulate hundreds of applications, while multinationals may have thousands. We assist in establishing the right governance and management to create an agile and future-proof application landscape.
