A cloud migration can give organizations greater cost and operational control. Beyond moving from a Capex to Opex model, cloud offers the flexibility to turn resources up or down based on business demand and the need to control costs. Yet, simply lifting and shifting applications to the cloud doesn’t guarantee these advantages. To maximize cloud benefits, application modernization may be needed.
Application Modernization Strategies
Modernization efforts can take several forms, such as replatforming and rearchitecting – also referred to as refactoring. Both can be good choices for strategic, business-impacting applications. A cost-benefit analysis is the preferred method to determine which of these approaches is best for each application to be modernized.
