Legacy Software Modernisation

More About Us

What is Legacy Software?

Many organisations still rely on legacy IT systems and products, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep these systems maintained. Skilled personnel are becoming scarce in older technology stacks, and the systems often run on legacy hardware which is unreliable and expensive. The system security is in doubt and upgrading it all seems daunting.

Our legacy modernisation service means you do not have to struggle with the daily challenges of outdated legacy systems.Ventureside will seamlessly replace or rebuild legacy systems to enable your business to continue without disruption.

Cloud Migration Services at Ventureside:

As an accredited Microsoft CSP (Cloud Solution Provider), Ventureside can help your organisation to plan and execute a successful cloud migration. We can take an application written for a Microsoft environment, such as a .NET web application (Web Forms, MVC, Web API) and SQL Server, that sits on physical servers or a virtualised environment, and make it work in Microsoft Azure. This usually involves upgrading some code, reworking SQL queries, reworking background processes and then going through the process of migrating code, migrating data, testing and ultimately launching and running it.

Vantureside’s Modernisation Process

  • Research and Businesses Insights:
  • We know that our clients understand the need for modern software to support a growing business, but we are always aware it is a daunting prospect. Our clients are in safe hands. As a first step, we’ll spend time with your employees and partners to understand the business, its current issues, and what the new system needs to be able to deliver. We also take on board suggested improvements they suggest for the workflow process as well as any functionality that must stay to enable them to do their job; this is crucial as the process of modernising client technology is unique to each company. We also spend time thoroughly analysing and documenting existing systems, ensuring no stone is left unturned. In our experience, this is the key to a smooth system changeover. At this early design stage, we supply a prototype of the new system to help clients visualise how it will look, feel and work.

  • Modernisation Options
  • Clients have two options available:

    • We can bring across certain functionality – for example, proprietary business processes or formulas – on to a new system that’s able to interface effectively with newer technologies.
    • Or, build a completely new system with the option to “switch off” the old legacy system at the end of the process.

    If upgrading your legacy system, in most cases data in the old system needs to be “migrated” or moved to the new system. In some cases, the data needs to be synchronised between the old and new systems to ensure a side-by-side system rollout can occur. We’re well versed in managing complex data migration scenarios, so clients can rely on us to ensure the process goes smoothly.

    Whichever option is chosen, we’ll use the very latest, powerful technologies to build a blueprint for a system that drives efficiencies by:

    • Controlling the input of data.
    • Streamlining how the data flows through the workflow stages.
    • Ensuring that your team completes tasks effectively.
    • Warning you when something appears abnormal.
    • Guiding the user through each task so nothing falls through cracks, is misinterpreted or incorrectly entered.

    The outcome will be informed management, productive users and happy customers.


Ventureside is a Microsoft Gold Partner, so our technology of choice is Azure, .NET Core, C# programming and SQL or Cosmos.
