Even a recently developed package may require a redesign of its software, if it does not satisfy all the user's needs, and, consequently, needs to be modernized. The leader in “horizontal” coding is Microsoft. Today its products are installed on practically all devices. Apple is another mega-producer, who predetermines the future of the market. To support their continued existence, corporations are regularly compelled to release new versions of operating systems, creating a situation where software quickly becomes outdated and must be updated.
Many specific packages for finance, accounting, retail, production automation, insurance and health care are not as prone to obsolescence caused by updated operating systems. Specialist software becomes outdated because of changes to legislation and industry standards.
Advantages of software redesign

|Development for a certain configuration||Modernisation can help to avoid the time-consuming and sometimes unsuccessful process of software deployment to company equipment.|
|Simplicity of implementation||There is no need to adjust one's activities to working with standard software. The client knows exactly what kind of outcome he is going to get, since modernization is conducted according to a requirements specification which covers all aspects.|
|It saves time||Having received a unique package of applications, a client can start work immediately. Staff training in the case of customized redesign also goes faster.|
|Guarantees||When modernizing software the contracting company bears all the responsibility for its correspondence to the functionality requirements. Any possible defects are quickly eliminated.|
