IT Modernization

NARTech helps modernize IT Application Systems and Platforms to enable organizations to better satisfy the needs and expectations of their customers, to work more closely with suppliers and partners, and to link their internal and external information systems more efficiently and flexibly.

CIO Review Dev Sec Ops Champion 2022 NARTech recognized by the industry's CIO Applications publication as one of the Top 10 companies that are at the forefront of providing Amazon Cloud consulting services and transforming businesses. NARTech has developed a "fast first view" approach that uses a combination of NARTech's application generation toolchain coupled with AWS cloud forming features. Traditional in-house application modernization effort takes 3-6 months for acquisition, setup, and deployment before the client may see anything. With NARTech's Agile toolchain running in the cloud, we can begin solution development for the IT modernization project on Day 1 of the contract award.

  • Design for Flexibility and Speed
  • Engage with Your Workforce and Culture

We believe in the following tenets regarding IT modernization for our customers:

  • Modernization is first and foremost about improving the customer or employee experience, improving productivity, and delivering competitive value.
  • Modernization is a customer journey that affects well-established business processes and customer experience. It must be done mindfully and gracefully.
  • Modernization is about agility. The real business value is the organizational agility that it provides enterprises as they must compete in a rapidly shifting marketplace.
  • Modernization is not an independent, discrete project. Instead, organizations must view it as a practical step in their digital transformation journey — a journey that the customer is driving.
