According to a recent article at TechTarget, enterprise IT executives see two paths ahead for their IT services: optimization or modernization. “IT services will bifurcate into two main types of projects: optimization efforts extracting more value out of what businesses already have and modernization programs preparing them for future expansion.”

What are Optimization and Modernization Projects?

Optimization projects are focused on making an existing IT system or process more efficient or effective. The goal of an optimization project is to improve performance by identifying and addressing bottlenecks or inefficiencies. This may involve streamlining processes, implementing new technologies, or making other changes to improve the efficiency or effectiveness of the system.

Modernization projects, on the other hand, are focused on updating or upgrading an IT system or process to make it more current or relevant. The goal of a modernization project is to bring a system or process up to date with current technology or best practices. This may involve replacing outdated equipment or software, introducing new technologies, or making other changes to bring the system or process up to date.


What are some considerations when choosing between optimization and modernization?

Here are some things to consider when deciding between a modernization project and an optimization project:

  1. Current state of the system or process: If the system or process is outdated or no longer capable of meeting the needs of the organization, a modernization project may be necessary. On the other hand, if the system or process is relatively new or performing well, an optimization project may be a better choice.
  2. Cost and resources: Modernization projects can be more expensive and resource-intensive than optimization projects, as they often involve more significant changes to the system or process. Consider the budget and resources available for the project when deciding between the two.
  3. Timeframe: Modernization projects can take longer to complete than optimization projects, as they often involve more significant changes and may require more extensive testing and deployment. Consider the timeframe for the project and whether a modernization or optimization project is more feasible.
  4. Goals and objectives: Ultimately, the choice between a modernization project and an optimization project should be driven by the goals and objectives of the organization. Consider what improvements or updates are needed to meet the organization’s needs and choose the project that will best help achieve those goals.
