Questions You may have

RedCat:

The cost of legacy application modernization at RedCat is tailored to each project, as it largely depends on the complexity and scale of the existing system. For a standard modernization project, which may include updating the codebase, integrating new features, and improving security, costs can start from approximately $20,000.

However, for more extensive modernizations that involve migrating to new platforms, integrating advanced technologies like AI or Blockchain or Amazon Chime, or complete system overhauls ussume a full development from scratch and database migration, with an iteration of reverse engineering and requirements reverse engineering in the beginning.

Usually this type of products is additionally simplified my modern integrations, and the costs may be decreased after a proper research and replacement of some old pieces of functionality by a ready-made and modern 3d-party solutions. But for sure, it will take more than $50 000 if this software is worthy update, with no illusion around it.

Additionally, it’s important to consider ongoing costs post-modernization, like support, maintenance, and future upgrades. These aspects are crucial for the sustained efficiency and security of the modernized system. Our approach includes a detailed scope of work and a clear roadmap, ensuring transparency in costs and deliverables.

RedCat:

Overall, first we need to indicate what is the depth of intervention needed – redesign, refactoring, rearchitecturing, or replacement.

There are several key indicators that a legacy system requires modernization. These include decreased performance, where the system struggles with slow processing speeds or frequent downtime. Compatibility issues are another sign, especially when the software no longer integrates smoothly with newer systems or applications.

Security vulnerabilities are a critical sign, as older systems often lack the robust security measures required to protect against modern cyber threats. Also, if the system is no longer supported by the vendor, or if it’s unable to meet the evolving regulatory compliance requirements, modernization becomes essential.

From our experience, there are several more things to consider a full modernization before some critical breakdown or breach happens to a system aka risk factors:

  • the system is older than 8-12 years;
  • there are only 1-2 people who can maintain it;
  • you know that words “tokenization” or “hashing” is not something implemented in your project;
  • when you show your software to somebody else for a first time, you appologize for UX and UI;
  • content uploads more than 6 seconds and this fact triggers everyone.

RedCat:

Yes, usually it happens like that. Few examples:

  • New specs – new design – new front-end
  • Old back-end – move to microservices – optimize performance
  • Add new features and Refactor

RedCat:

  1. Define obvious pains (ask the sales team and marketers)
  2. Check what competitors have
  3. Think of how long you don’t want to get back to the modernization matter again.
  4. Ask us to do an audit.
  5. We will offer you one of 3 options to proceed with. Choose one.
