Legacy Application Modernization Services
Transform your old software into an efficiency engine
Combine advanced technologies and streamlined processes to transform your old application into a highly efficient system.
Legacy software brings more trouble than benefits
An outdated system bogged down by years of ad-hoc changes and quick fixes. Result: increased maintenance costs and inefficiency. Sounds familiar? Then modernizing your legacy application is crucial to reduce technical debt and restore profitability.
23% of developers' time is wasted on working on technical debt
Because of legacy applications your development team must invest their time in fixing bugs and patching holes, instead of developing your product and making it better.
It's costly to maintain
70% of IT bugets are consumed by legacy system maintenance
Legacy systems generate costs instead of profits. You can't optimize your revenue and get the maximum return on investment if you have to constantly pay to maintain non-functional software.
It's a blocker for scaling
87% of companies plan a software modernization within a year
Legacy systems block business growth and scaling because they are difficult to develop and modify. That's why handling tech debt is one of the most important strategic goals of leading companies.
"Modernization needs to be prioritized with a quantifiable value."
It's crucial to understand the impact of the change and from that drive the initiatives with as many and small deliveries as possible to minimise both the complexity and the disruptions.
Modernization needs to be prioritized with a quantifiable value if at all possible. It needs to be a first class item of work, not extra background work, or it will fail. It has to be funded, time-boxed, and put on a product roadmap as a full fledged project or initiative.
I could imagine that for some companies discussions on investments in modernization will not get easier with the current market conditions and more focus will be on creating direct, tangible user impact.

We were looking for flexibility and engineers that would be able to think through the problems and really come up with the best solution.
When I think of you, I think of painless team augmentation.
(...) You're gonna save yourself problems and money in the long term with software done correctly.
Our previous native app had bugs due to the development we’d done on the website, and Brainhub resolved all of those issues.
The team has been great at achieving our goals; thanks to them, we have a well-performing mobile app.
We contacted Brainhub because we wanted to have the best people on board with the shortest time.
We don't treat Brainhub's people as contractors but as other team members.
Probably any company would benefit from working with Brainhub, but if you have more complex issues like dealing with technical debt or have some big challenges you want to tackle but don’t really know how, I would definitely think of Brainhub for that.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much it costs to modernize an application?
Modernizing a legacy application involves various cost factors similar to other software projects. These include the application's complexity, desired features and functionality, the project timeline, and the team size required for development.
Each modernization project is distinct, and to provide an accurate cost estimate, we need to understand your specific needs and objectives. This involves a detailed discussion about the project's scope and any technical specifications.
We aim to offer transparent and reasonable pricing for our services. We can develop a tailored pricing plan that aligns with your budget, ensuring you receive maximum value from your investment.
If you're interested in further details about our pricing or how we can assist in modernizing your legacy application, feel free to contact us.
I have been working with an external team and would like to change it. Do you work with such projects?
Absolutely, we're equipped to take over projects from external teams. We know switching development partners isn't easy, so our focus is on a smooth transition.
First, we dive into your project's details - scope, requirements, architecture, and code. This includes a code review to spot any issues or improvement areas. Then, we'll plan the transition with clear timelines, milestones, and communication plans. We prioritize open communication to keep you in the loop at all times.
We're aware of the challenges in adopting a project with different coding styles or tools. So, we'll align with your preferences to ensure our work meets your objectives. Our experience in handling such transitions ensures top-notch software quality and service.
Can you guarantee data security?
As a software development company, we take data security very seriously and implement best practices to ensure the safety of our clients' data. However, it's important to note that no system can be completely immune to threats, and guaranteeing 100% data security is not realistic.
That said, we follow a range of security measures and practices to mitigate the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access to our clients' data. These measures include:
- Encryption: We encrypt all sensitive data at rest and in transit, using industry-standard encryption protocols.
- Access Controls: We implement strict access controls to limit access to sensitive data and ensure that only authorized personnel have access to it.
- Penetration Testing: We conduct regular penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in our systems and applications and to proactively address potential security threats.
- Compliance: We ensure that our systems and processes are in compliance with relevant security and privacy regulations, such as GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA, where applicable.
- Employee Training: We provide regular security awareness training to our employees to ensure that they are aware of security best practices and are equipped to identify and respond to potential security threats.
While we cannot guarantee 100% data security, we are committed to implementing the highest standards of data security and to continuously monitoring and improving our systems and processes to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our clients' data.
Do you sign NDA and NC agreements?
Absolutely, we are prepared to enter into Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and Non-Compete Agreements (NCAs) with our clients. Recognizing the critical nature of confidentiality in modernizing legacy applications, we prioritize safeguarding your proprietary and sensitive information. Our approach includes signing NDAs and NCAs, limiting access to confidential data to only those who are authorized, and enforcing robust security protocols to prevent any unauthorized access or leaks.
If you have your own NDAs and NCAs, we're more than willing to review and sign them. We treat all legal agreements with the utmost seriousness, ensuring that all parties' rights are respected and that the terms are fully adhered to. In summary, we are fully committed to maintaining the highest level of confidentiality and security for our clients' information and data throughout the application modernization process.
