The business environment is changing all the time and businesses have to evolve to keep their relevance to their markets. With technology advances, existing legacy software systems need to change with the times too, evolving into state-of-the-art IT solutions that cater to today’s business needs, while preserving established business rules and practices coded in the old system.
Evolution can take many forms. Typical business-driven reasons are
Making a version of your web application that works well on mobile browsers
Developing a mobile application that runs on the mobile phones itself
Adding e-commerce to a site
Adding m-commerce to mobile apps
Developing a customer login area
Adding RSS feeds
Re-design to keep the app fresh and interesting
There can also be compelling technical reasons to evolve a system
Vendors’ basic software evolves (e.g. .Net). This means that eventually, a system needs to be brought up-to-date to be able to be supported as well as to take advantage of new capabilities.
Systems that have been continually been enhanced over a long period eventually become complex, unwieldy and difficult to manage. There comes a time when there are substantial advantages to be gained from redevelopment.
System may become slow with poor response
While these reasons may be seen as technical, ultimately they affect the business and that is the reason that evolution has to be an essential part of any business’s strategy. The main objectives of software evolution are ensuring the reliability and flexibility of the system, and above all, its fitness for purpose as a business system.
Porting to modern platforms is the right step for unique software which is hard to replace or when the technology used becomes outdated and the system is slow and not effective.
