How to incorporate legacy systems into your digital strategy 1

Digital transformation is a concept on many CEOs’lips.
It promises innovation.

But there are plenty of barriers to achieving digital transformation – not least the prospect of integrating legacy technology systems with newer ones. In too many organisations, the misconception still exists that introducing new digital tools and processes requires a complete removal and replacement of old systems, and with it an abandoning of all that initial investment.

Not so. By following some simple principles, you can make your legacy systems part of a digital transformation strategy.

Undertake an assessment

First, you need to thoroughly understand the current state of your legacy systems – a task that has gone unconsidered for too long in too many organisations. ‘Current state’ means a few different things. It means understanding precisely what value those systems have to your business – that is, which essential day-to-day operations they underpin, and which other business systems depend on them.

Identify integration points

Once you have established which legacy systems areactively going to be integrated into more up-to-date digital systems, you need to identify the points where that integration can best take place.

Given that efficiency should always be front of mind, tis can be a suitable point to implement a business rule management system (BRMS), if you do not already have one. These provide a single centralised and consolidated management platform for rule assets, and place control in the hands of actual business users.
