IT modernization strategies: Proactively evolve your IT portfolio

As IT systems age, they become costly to operate and more susceptible to faults. Discover how creating a modernization strategy for your IT infrastructure can eliminate outdated, inefficient technologies that pose high risk. And free your team to focus on innovation most important to your business.


Out-of-date systems cause unexpected and inflated expenses, including costs of extended support, lost productivity, and the unplanned replacement of components or platforms. In addition, the lack of available application services can pose a competitive disadvantage, impacting the organization's bottom line.

Planning a proactive modernization strategy that continuously evolves segments of your IT infrastructure as systems age, particularly as they reach the final phases of production-level support, can eliminate pockets of outdated and inefficient technologies.

In this webinar, you will learn the best practices and tools for assessing the current state of architecture, organization, and business objectives. Discover practical strategies for planning and implementing an IT modernization roadmap, including:

  • Building flexible architectures on commodity hardware.
  • Implementing open standards for flexibility.
  • Creating scalable deployments.
