Many organisations’ systems share similar characteristics: uncoordinated IT investments over the years, an incremental and tactical approach to development, resulting in a patchwork of pain points. Despite the problems management is often reluctant to replace systems due to the cost and risk, but we believe a business case for replacement can often be made and the risks of replacement managed.
As more sophisticated, compelling and cost effective solutions are developed, organisations are presented with an increasing choice of platforms and technologies. Only through core systems replacement can organisations reach new levels of capability and efficiency, polarising the market between those who decided to break the mould and those that didn’t.
