Application Modernization in a Nutshell
Application Modernization is the process of converting monolithic line of business (LOB) applications to modern apps that allow organizations to swiftly translate their business requirements to scalable solutions.
Most organizations are reluctant to change their business-critical, on-premise and legacy applications fearing an adverse impact on revenue and customer experience. But these fears are unfounded, in fact, a modern cloud architecture not only drives revenue and improves customer satisfaction, it is free of the complexity and massive expenses associated with legacy technologies.
App modernization offers usability and scalability, by providing the fundamental building blocks such as identity and access, asynchronous messaging, highly scalable distributed data architectures and complete platform independence. Cutting-edge technologies like Azure Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) not only drives business transformation but also offers a way to build fine-grained, independently scalable micro-services. These can be packed efficiently into customizable bundles, allowing continuous development and integration underlined by rapid iteration and constant evolution.
Who needs App Modernization services?
Organizations that are losing money running an outdated combination of legacy and on-premise applications need to modernize their applications and adopt server-less computing on Microsoft Azure to reduce their time-to-market, optimize their cloud spends, and improve performance and scalability.
They can shift their focus to the development of ready to consume (out of the box) solutions that can be scaled as the application matures. With Azure PaaS services, businesses can modernize their applications with cloud-native development, containers, and micro-services while server-less computing provides the additional benefit of a ‘clean’ code base in production, making it infrastructure-agnostic.
