How APIs can Modernize Legacy Systems

How APIs can Modernize Legacy Systems

Published by: Research Desk Released: Feb 26, 2020

Legacy systems, which form the backbone of many enterprises, are holding organizations back from leveraging new digital technologies and creating new experiences for their customers, stakeholders, and partners. Many organizations find it difficult to modernize or extend their legacy systems in a way that enables them to create an IT strategy that supports the quick adoption of newer technologies such as cloud, big data, IoT, and mobile. When they do attempt to modernize their legacy systems, many organizations connect new systems to their legacy databases and software with point-to-point integration–– leading to tight dependencies between systems and creating a brittle, costly, hard-to-maintain infrastructure. For a better legacy modernization strategy, organizations must move beyond point-to-point integration and embrace an APIbased integration strategy: API-led connectivity.
