Working with legacy software systems vs focusing on digital innovation?

In the world of digital innovation, the question of whether to focus on legacy software systems or put more resources into digital transformation is an important one for businesses of all sizes. At Insticc Digital, we believe that both are equally important, and should be considered together in order to ensure the most successful outcomes. 

On one hand, most organisations have invested a lot of time and money into their legacy systems, which makes it difficult to abandon them in favour of a digital transformation. On the other hand, digital transformation is essential for staying relevant and competitive in today’s market.

The key to success is finding a balance between leveraging existing systems and investing in digital innovation. To do this, organizations must first understand the strengths and weaknesses of their current systems. This will help them identify which parts of the system need to be updated and replaced. Once this assessment is done, organizations can begin migrating their legacy systems to more modern, cloud-based solutions. This process can be lengthy and costly, but with the right expertise and planning, it is possible to make the transition with minimal disruption to operations.

It’s a difficult decision to make, however both options have their respective advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each approach.

While legacy systems are typically reliable and stable, they’re are not always compatible with the latest technology, can be difficult to maintain and upgrade, may require a significant amount of resources and are limited in their ability to be agile to changing user behaviours and preferences.

Legacy Systems:


  • Reliable and stable
  • High degree of control over the system
  • Low cost of implementation


  • Not compatible with the latest technology
  • Difficult to maintain and upgrade
  • May require a significant amount of resources
  • Can be costly to maintain
  • Ceiling on innovation, new features and expansion possibilities
