Application modernization takes existing applications and data sets that run businesses and makes them more useful, productive, and attractive. As I stated before, some see application modernization as “putting lipstick on a pig,” but it should not just make applications appear modern, it should make them look and be modern.
To that end, I see several mistakes being made that will have to be fixed at some point in the future. My advice to friends, colleagues, and clients: You really want to do this once. Don’t get something wrong the first time and then have to fix it down the line.
