Staying ahead of the tech-curve is key to success and often that means updating and improving aging systems. At Profound Logic, we specialize in futurization—a crucial step toward transformation and business innovation.  

But what exactly does transformation entail, and how can your business benefit from it? Let’s dive into the essentials of transformation and how together we can make sure your business is ready for the future!

What Is Transformation?

Code Transformation is a multifaceted process that can mean different things depending on your needs. It could involve: 

  • UI Transformation: Enhancing the user interface to provide a memorable and engaging experience. 
  • Code Transformation: Improving application performance by transitioning to a new language or architecture. 
  • Full Digital Transformation: Futurizing the entire system for increased efficiency and success. 
  • Process Transformation: Moving from manual, paper-based processes to systematic, computer-based approaches.

Why Transform?

Wondering why your business should consider transformation? Businesses choose to transform their systems for several compelling reasons including: 

  • Mainstream Tools: Transitioning to a language like Node.js allows the use of industry-standard tools for testing, automation, and deployment. 
  • Larger Candidate Pool: Finding RPG developers can be challenging. By moving to Open-Source, you tap into a vast pool of JavaScript developers, enhancing your recruitment possibilities. 
  • Easier Integration with New Technologies: Open-Source languages facilitate seamless integration with cutting-edge technologies such as AI, machine learning, and IoT, essential for maintaining a competitive edge. 
  • Increased Developer Productivity: Modern tools and languages boost productivity, leading to better and faster development cycles.
