Ten Criteria to Use for Application Modernization Service Provider Selection

Ten Criteria to Use for Application Modernization Service Provider Selection

This IDC study reveals the results of 23 in-depth telephone-based customer interviews that IDC conducted in 2015. Through the course of the interviews, IDC sought to gain insight into the key criteria that the organizations deemed most critical in comparing and selecting an application modernization service provider. The interviews spanned a variety of organizations across 12 industries — financial services, construction, government, telecommunications, aerospace, energy and utilities, healthcare, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, professional services, consumer packaged goods, and high technology — across North America, Europe, and Asia."Modernizing applications has grown to be a major enterprise initiative, and organizations are hard at work transforming their applications portfolios to build business agility and achieve digital transformation objectives. Many early adopters of application modernization services have achieved business benefits from their modernized applications, and those successes have sparked other enterprises to make application modernization a higher priority within their digital transformation imperatives." — Pete Marston, research manager, Application Development, Testing, and Management Services (ADTMS) at IDC
