legacy systems

What is legacy modernization?

Any software that no longer meets current business needs is considered legacy. Modernization is an integral part of digital transformation that aims to enhance legacy systems and create a more agile and secure business technology platform that delivers competitive value.

Convert legacy from a barrier to a blessing

Zoho Creator is a low-code platform that allows organizations to enhance their legacy systems and drive digital transformation.

Legacy software challenges

Zoho Creator solution

Hard to customize

Legacy systems have a large, monolithic codebase. This makes them incredibly complex and discourages developers from creating new features.

Extensive customization

Build applications exclusively for your business. Set up smart workflows for your core business processes, generate strategic insights, and accelerate your digital transformation.

Complex infrastructure

They require dedicated and expensive maintenance. It’s also hard to find qualified experts to work with outdated technology.

Improved IT productivity

You build your business, we'll handle the servers. Your apps run on Zoho's highly scalable and secure cloud, so your IT team can focus on creating value for your business.

Prone to threats

If not maintained well, legacy systems can be a gateway for hackers. As they accumulate patches over time, they can easily become a point of attack.

Better security

All Zoho Creator apps support federated logins and enterprise-grade SAML SSO, AD, and multifactor authentication, so IT can grant access faster and more securely.

Disconnected Data

With legacy systems, data is housed in silos. This means employees will not have access to a real-time or consolidated view of the data they need.

Integrated systems

Connect all the apps you use with APIs, and access the data you need in just a few clicks.

Lack of mobility

61% of organizations believe that without enterprise mobile apps, they're at a competitive disadvantage. A lost customer becomes a competitor's revenue.

Mobile and faster performance

Simplify and speed up business processes by storing 30+ types of data, like locations and signatures, on the cloud with instant access from any device.

Maintaining compliance

Keeping legacy technology updated with strict industry regulations is crucial. Failing to comply leads to millions in penalties.

Up-to-date compliance

We always update our compliance, so you can rest easy knowing your data—and your customers' data—is secure.

You realize it a little bit every day, every month, that it’s a good choice you made. And you also realize it when you're not complaining constantly and you're not thinking about changing it all the time.
