The process of application modernization can take many forms. First on the agenda is to have a transformative experience rallying the organization around the transformation. Each stakeholder in the transformation can provide valuable input and should be made to feel ownership in the experience. A good method that we have used in the past for modernization projects has been to define a small scope of the initial project that will be demonstrative to the stakeholders the process and procedures that are required to bring about the modernization. This target definition becomes a proof of concept to the organization of the modernization process.
