An Alternative to Modernizing Legacy Systems: The Airbus Story
This IDC study helps CIOs and their staff members explore an alternative strategy to modernizing legacy systems using Airbus' Greenhouse as an example. It explores the why, what, and how of the creation of the Greenhouse and also provides advice to CIOs who are struggling with legacy system challenges. This study answers three questions about Airbus' approach to modernizing legacy systems:How can CIOs harness and leverage the resources and knowledge that business units can provide in modernizing legacy systems?What advantages can Greenhouse-like approaches bring to IT organizations and their businesses?What steps can CIOs take to help ensure the success of a Greenhouse-like initiative?"More than a place, a process, or a function, the Greenhouse is a mindset," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network. "It embodies the new reality that 3rd Platform technologies in combination with emerging low-code development and citizen developers have created a new era of opportunity for IT organizations that can 'think different.'"
