Characteristics Of A Transformed IT
Legacy IT is the accumulation of decades of evolving technologies, each additional system or application requiring people to create, enhance, and maintain it. This approach to IT cannot be improved; it must be reinvented and transformed.
Instant IT reinvents the way IT is developed to achieve business goals. This new approach features several characteristics important to business success.
A transformed IT focuses on business operations and results, not software and technology, to align IT and the business.
Custom business solutions
Instant IT® custom business applications increase IT productivity by 10,000% and reduce application costs by 60%.
Enterprise-scale IT solutions today use best-in-class technologies like open source software, containers, Kubernetes, and data streaming.
IT operational simplicity
A transformed IT simplifies its operations by automating technical work, eliminating technology lock-in, and reducing IT complexity.
Why IT Must Be Transformed And Automated
After decades of technology progress IT has become, for most companies, a hodge-podge accumulation of hardware, software, platforms, systems, and applications that must be maintained and enhanced until they are, if ever, replaced.
IT complexity is “the sand that grinds all innovation to a halt” and “a significant tax on IT value.” (www.cio.com)
Transforming IT applications, systems, technologies, and operations requires automating the technical work and processes that make legacy IT labor-intensive, time-consuming, and expensive.
Developing, supporting, maintaining, and refining IT systems is manual work performed by technical specialists. This requires IT to add people and skills whenever a new technology or application is added to the aggregation of technologies already supported. InfoNovus Instant IT automates this manual work.

Much IT work involves moving data to make it available for systems, reporting, or analytics. Because inconsistencies exist between different sources, data is constantly being standardized, corrected, integrated, and structured as needed. InfoNovus Instant IT eliminates this work by developing unified data and rules and ensuring they are used consistently.

For legacy IT, different technologies require different skills and locks legacy systems in to the technologies on which they operate. This results in duplication, redundancies, inconsistencies, reconciliation problems, and additional IT effort. InfoNovus Instant IT® automation avoids inconsistencies and removes technology lock-in, root causes of IT complexity, with unified data and rules and its ability to generate existing Instant IT® applications to operate using best-in-class technologies as they emerge.

IT complexity can no longer be tolerated in a world where businesses are challenged by the pace of change. Legacy IT, like a hundred-year-old house, can only be tended to by qualified technicians. And like some old houses, legacy IT isn’t salvageable. IT simplification through InfoNovus Instant IT® automation is the strategic choice for companies going forward.
