Event Visualisation Environment of ALICE (AliEVE) is a tool based on the TEve module of ROOT. It was created over a decade ago and is still actively developed and used in production. Changing experimental conditions, evolving users' expectations and an increasing number of performance and stability issues required a major refactoring of the application during LS1 in view of Run 2. In particular the split of the visualisation and reconstruction code using zeroMQ and TBufferFile and the introduction of the so-called Storage Manager will be presented. In addition, a survey on other technologies and platforms which could be of use for the ALICE data visualisation is being conducted: web technologies, mobile platforms, augmented and virtual reality devices are envisaged to be used both in production and for outreach purposes. Thus we present the possible implications for AliEVE's ROOT-based code.
