What is Application Modernisation?
Application Modernisation is the practice of updating an organisation’s existing applications to a cloud-first model. App Modernisation can take many forms – as identified by the Garner “5 Rs” model.
Rehosting, also known as “Lift and shift”, is about moving apps into cloud platforms as-is. For example, moving an on-premises application server into an Azure Virtual Machine.
Take advantage of PaaS service scalability by re-platforming. For example, re-platforming a web application from self-managed web servers to Azure App Services or leveraging AKS.
Make changes to your application to leverage cloud-native offerings and empower future features. Adopt technologies such as CosmosDB, Azure Cognitive Services, Messaging Architectures with Azure Service Bus or Azure Event Grid and the latest Open AI offerings.
Assessment may reveal that an existing application is no longer fit-for-purpose. In this instance, a full rebuild may be required. This is a more significant undertaking that may be essential, and we have the capabilities to deliver a full rebuild for you using the latest technologies.
Finding a ready-made solution that better fits your needs can be faster than and more cost-effective than rebuilding and can also free up resources to be redeployed elsewhere. Both rebuilding and replacing involve challenges and risks, which we will help you navigate.
