Application incompatibility rife in three out of four businesses

New research discovers that many businesses are unprepared for modernisation

Over three quarters (77%) of organisations have at least one application that is not compatible with the latest version of Windows, reveals a new survey of UK and US CIOs commissioned by Cloudhouse, the application compatibility packaging and configuration management solutions provider. In 89% of organisations, up to 25% of all applications could be incompatible.

This is potentially a problem as 32% of respondents report that 16-25% of their applications are critical to their business operations and 24% say they are either ‘not at all’ or ‘not very’ confident in their ability to fully upgrade these platforms to be 100% compatible with the latest version of the Windows operating system

Half of all businesses (50%) feel that there is a significant amount of work to still be done to modernise applications for compatibility with newer Windows versions. Additionally, 25% concede that while they’ve ironed out most issues, there is still some work to be done to ensure modernisation. Only one in five (20%) currently has a comprehensive modernisation plan in place.

Mat Clothier, CEO and Founder of Cloudhouse, said: “Our research has discovered that application incompatibility is, unfortunately, a common occurrence among businesses and if left unchecked can impact the platforms that are absolutely critical to operations. It’s vital for these organisations to make use of specialist tools that allow applications to be transplanted to new Windows operating systems, without losing any functionality or impact on the user experience.”

More than half (55%) of organisations say they plan to increase their 2022 budget for application modernisation by more than 25%, with 17% planning to increase it by more than 50%.
