The Synergy Application Maturity Model

The Synergy Application Maturity Model is a tool that our experts use to help you identify a modernization strategy for your business-critical applications. By knowing realistically where you are today and what you aspire to, you can create a plan for modernization that will serve you today and far into the future.

Developed based on our 45+ years of experience in legacy systems evolution

  • Describes current best-in-class states of modernization across five key phases/vectors
  • Guides you in dispassionately assessing your current level of maturity in each phase/vector
  • Leads to a baseline maturity snapshot as a navigational aid to a functional modernization journey
  • Stimulates an aspirational but practical discussion about modernization
  • Often used as part of a Synergy Application Assessment, a discovery project that evaluates your technology systems and overall environment and recommends effective modernization initiatives to help you meet your business goals
  • Serves as an ongoing guide / report card against best-in-class modernization, to keep your modernization journey on track
