How to Ship Competitive Digital Products Faster

A Modern Approach to Faster Software Delivery for Technology Leaders: 500 Industry Professionals Surveyed

This white paper shows a connection between legacy systems and product development, as well as how firms can employ targeted tech transformation to reduce friction in SDLCs and enable their development teams to build competitive products.

Developing high quality software and delivering it to customers quickly is one of the clearest signs of success for modern businesses. However, a large number of companies still rely on legacy systems that hinder speed-to-market, product quality, and overall performance. Data shows there is a clear correlation between a company’s legacy dependence and their efficiency and speed in software development processes; modernizing systems, processes, and culture can improve these processes. But the data also shows that many companies struggle to modernize due to internal constraints and limited resources.

While replacing legacy systems remains a complex and costly task to undertake, Levvel has found that there is a way to apply modernization that accounts for business constraints —specifically, by following a piecemeal approach that spaces out implementation projects and associated costs while producing the quickest benefits. Instead of a one-time initiative that replaces legacy systems altogether, companies can strategically choose what aspects of their legacy to modernize first in order to effectively improve product development.

Identifying and adopting high-impact product initiatives is critical. This report shows a clear connection between legacy systems and product development, as well as how companies can employ targeted technology transformation to reduce friction in software development life cycles (SDLC) and enable their development teams to build competitive products.
