There isn’t one agreed upon definition of what constitutes a replatforming program. It can vary from a straightforward “lift and shift” migration into a new environment to a complete architectural rewrite. Usually, a pragmatic approach to replatforming for most businesses lies somewhere in between these two extremes.
At Intelliware, we’ve undertaken dozens of successful replatforming projects, and we are seeing the demand for such efforts increasing enormously. Our clients often ask us for our opinions on how to approach these systems modernization projects, so we thought it was a good time to get our thoughts down in a format that would be helpful for them.
Replatforming is a big topic, and as a result, we’ve decided to take a look at it from a number of different perspectives. In this first whitepaper, “What is Replatforming?”, we take a look at the range of different replatforming options, discuss the business and technical drivers behind the need to replatform, and link incremental and iterative agile development practices as a pragmatic approach to undertaking these large, complex programs.
