"Never change a running system" - This wisdom from industry often leads to the slow but steady obsolescence of important core systems in companies that have to run around the clock. While IT and communications in a company evolve over the years, core systems that perform essential productive tasks often stay the same.
This may also be due to the very small time windows in which modifications would be possible. Some companies prefer to do without them altogether so as not to stop the entire process. However, this strategy is a fallacy. As a result, these legacy systems cannot benefit from the new advances in technology and run the risk of becoming increasingly obsolete. At some point, they simply can't keep up with new requirements and thus slow down the company's development.
The term "retrofit" covers all considerations and actions that bring old and running systems back up to the current state of the art. These systems generally intervene very deeply in a company's daily processes and in some cases hold vital operational functions. To make matters worse, there are also narrow time windows in which the systems can be accessed for repairs and upgrades. Expert knowledge is therefore required here when it comes to modernizing existing systems during ongoing operations.
Retrofit pays off! Depending on the initial situation, large and noticeable effects can be achieved with little effort, which have a lasting and positive impact on all business processes. The focus is on the best possible and economical implementation of the modernization, taking into account all general conditions. InnoLOG® supports its customers as a competent and experienced modernization partner in the as-is analysis of existing legacy systems, the design of suitable modernization scenarios and the subsequent implementation. Together with our customers, we develop implementation plans that restrict operations during implementation as little as possible, if at all.
