Insights on Legacy Modernization and Cloud Migration

Legacy Application Modernization and Cloud Migration

Legacy applications can benefit significantly from migrating to the cloud. The cloud offers improved scalability & reliability for your legacy applications, and improved security & durability for your valuable business data. There are several options for modernizing and moving an application to the cloud. You can make significant changes by refactoring, rearchitecting or completely rebuilding the application – or you can choose to replatform the application. Replatforming involves migrating the application to a new runtime platform, making minimal changes to the code, but not the code structure, features or functions. The choice you make depends on the criticality of the application, the urgency to make a change and the required costs.

This page provides expert tips and insights on legacy application modernization to take advantage of the benefits of the cloud.
