Modernization process

The goal of a phased approach to modernization is to provide incremental value by using modernization dimensions, to apply these to a subset of core, business-differentiating applications, and to accelerate modern technology adoption. The phased approach consists of three steps:

  1. Evaluate the maturity of applications by using a modernization diagnostic playbook. Take a comprehensive approach to adoption, and develop processes that are aligned to intended business outcomes.

  2. Start small and prepare to deliver an MVP to gain momentum by driving business results early and incrementally. This phase typically takes 12 to 16 weeks.

  3. Create a scalable modernization roadmap to work in a split-and-seed model.

The following sections discuss these steps in more detail.
