Application modernization is not an option anymore. It is a necessity for any business to be able to respond quickly to changing market environment and deliver enhanced digital and customer experience.

Along with new age applications, a typical enterprise applications landscape consists of number of inefficient legacy applications that are nearing obsolescence. These inflexible legacy applications are in turn leading to:

  • Lack of agility of enterprise application landscape
  • High legacy application maintenance costs
  • Inefficiency of business processes
  • Integration challenges with new age applications

Although legacy applications are severely affecting business agility, a complete rip and replace of legacy system is impossible. Espire is addressing this multi-layered problem with its impactful application modernization strategies.

The core focus area of our application modernization strategy is to retain essential legacy applications and modernize & optimize (upgrade or migrate) them effectively to enable modern functionalities and ensure agility.


Re-platform | Retire | Re-host | Extend and consolidate

  • Platform Modernization: Porting, migration, re-architecting applications and data to a modern, cost-effective technology platform. For instance, UNIX to LINUX and *NIX to Window
  • Database Modernization: Delivering comprehensive and cost-effective migration solutions, across a wide range of databases. We have deep experience in migrating hierarchical database of enterprises to modern and relational database. For instance, Oracle legacy to MySQL, Oracle to PgSQL and legacy to MS SQL
  • Transitioning to cloud: Rapid provisioning and scalability along with self-service capabilities of the cloud environment is one the key reasons why Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are deciding to migrate enterprise applications to the cloud environment

But to do this, your applications need to be cloud-ready. Our expertise enables businesses to transition their applications, seamlessly, to the cloud environment.
