Turn outdated systems into modern software

Inflexible systems are increasingly leading to slower innovation and are deemed a poor fit with new processes and requirements, resulting in the business's inability to keep up with modern market demands. However, companies can refrain from software modernization because replacement is simply not feasible due to the risk of data loss or incompatibility with internal processes. Betty Blocks offers organizations the ability to incrementally improve and augment without disrupting business operations, resulting in safer application modernization.

Improve processes

Eliminate manual processes, forms, and sheets by adding modern features with low-code. Improved workflows lead to the business being more agile.

Reduce costs

Keeping legacy systems operational is costly, low-code offers a speedy solution by providing developers with pre-set templates.

Extend flexibility

Add branding elements or extended role-based permissions to existing applications without going through full-scale migrations.

Deliver at scale

Use the cloud-based visual code builder to quickly create and iterate on the desired solutions, delivering projects at enterprise scale.

Patch security risks

Unsupported systems can pose a significant security risk. Use low-code to increase security and mitigate compliance issues.

Future-proof solutions

Scale existing solutions, such as HighQ, effortlessly to grow with the business in a secure and governed low-code environment.


Examples of systems modernized with low-code

Off-the-shelf or no-code solutions are good for improving workflows on a departmental level but don’t lend themselves well to optimizing enterprise core systems. With Betty Blocks, development teams have the necessary tooling to compose extended functionalities on top of existing systems and gradually update outdated systems to fit modern requirements, thanks to the platform’s powerful integration capabilities.

Augment existing IT systems

Organizational systems need to be maintained and updated continuously to keep up with business demands. More often than not, any work done to legacy software comes with lengthy development cycles and is carried out too late. This means that it is harder for businesses to stay ahead of the curve and be competitive. With Betty Blocks, development teams are able to extend existing systems with new functionalities on an as-needed basis at a fraction of the time and cost, thanks to the platform’s intuitive visual coding environment.

Custom and AI integrations

Betty Blocks is the only low-code platform for business-led IT that gives you true freedom to integrate with legacy applications in a no-code way. All developer roles can connect to any web service and database via the Block Store in just a few clicks, making it very easy to use. You can connect with existing core systems using any API REST / SOAP. In the Block Store, users can find a myriad of popular third-party APIs. Skilled developers can also add their own custom APIs here, so they are only available for their organization. This helps to customize and innovate solutions to fit modern core systems, resulting in unique products and services. 


Cloud system modernization

Since most ERPs and other core systems were built in the 1990s, they run on on-premises hardware, making migration to the cloud lengthy and expensive. Maintaining outdated hardware is costly and can significantly slow down the business and hamper technological innovation.  With remote work and hybrid work becoming more prevalent, employees need to be able to access systems from any location.


Companies urgently need to move their data, tools, and systems to a cloud-based environment, but doing so can temporarily impede business operations. Betty Blocks offers a seamless transition to cloud-based solutions by allowing developers to build the desired functionality or solution on the platform first. Here, it can be tested and validated thoroughly to fit the requirements needed to augment the outdated system. This type of software modernization means that organizations will not experience any downtime in their services while legacy migrations are being carried out.

Fits seamlessly in every enterprise architecture

The Betty Blocks platform fits seamlessly into your enterprise architecture and internal standards. Betty Blocks likewise integrates into the existing enterprise software development life cycle (SDLC) and adds value by delivering apps in enterprise environments. Enterprises have a standardized way of working and often do not want to adjust to the tooling they buy. When a new tool or solution is built, it needs to fit into the architecture and working processes the organization already has. The Betty Blocks platform fits perfectly within existing enterprise IT architectures, as we comply with enterprise-level delivery standards, making it fit seamlessly in the SDLC and CI/CD pipeline.
