Share Article

Nexaweb's recent survey on application modernization showed client/server and early web applications are the top two priorities for transformation by IT organizations today — ahead of mainframe and COBOL. More than 90% of the 220 IT professionals surveyed said they had a legacy application modernization problem, and more than 50% said it was a serious challenge. Respondents selected Java/J2EE more than twice as often as any other platform for their application modernization efforts, and said mobile and cloud computing were the most important technologies for application modernization.

“The results of this survey confirm application modernization is one of the most pressing problems facing IT today and reveal significant pent-up demand for client/server application transformation solutions,” said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb.

Nexaweb Technologies today announced the findings of its recent survey on application modernization – which showed client/server and early web applications are the top two priorities for transformation by IT organizations today – ahead of mainframe and COBOL.

In the survey of more than 220 IT professionals conducted in October, more than 90% of respondents indicated they had a legacy application modernization problem, and more than 50% of the total characterized their organization’s issues as a serious challenge. Respondents also selected Java/J2EE more than twice as often as any other platform for their application modernization efforts, and indicated that mobile and cloud computing were the most important technologies for implementation in the next 12 months and beyond.

The top four reasons cited by respondents as motivations to modernize their legacy applications were to:
1.    facilitate integration with other applications in their portfolio
2.    reduce maintenance costs
3.    meet user change requirements faster
4.    eliminate unsupported hardware and software

“The results of this survey confirm application modernization is one of the most pressing problems facing IT today and reveal significant pent-up demand for client/server application transformation solutions,” said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb Technologies, Inc. “It was also noteworthy that respondents said they had more early web applications to modernize than mainframe applications. We believe this shows the definition of ‘legacy’ applications is expanding to include relatively recent technologies.”
