Modernization makes you ready for the evolving digitized future


Your apps and software might work just fine, doing what they are supposed to do. However, they lack the flexibility and agility needed in today’s digital arena.

Modern customers have modern demands which are often dynamic in nature. Hence, your legacy systems would not be able to fulfil those requirements. Your organization needs a modernization applications process to fulfill the new needs and requirements. 

Legacy application modernization is the solution

App modernization is an approach that allows companies to update their legacy systems with the latest technology stack. It enables organizations to align with their business goals. Apart from offering operational excellence, the process ensures 30–50% lower maintenance costs. 

Rearchitecting legacy apps helps companies to leverage benefits likes scalability and agility offered by innovative technologies. Modernization is cost-effective and improves collaboration and productivity.

Some of the key drivers that lead businesses to legacy modernization are:

Increased maintenance cost: Maintaining traditional software architecture and IT infrastructure costs a lot. As it is based on old and obsolete systems, the maintenance and support cost increases significantly. 

Frequent software crashes: Companies start experiencing more bugs, resulting in recurrent software issues. It also deflates the processing power and speed. 

Increase in hardware dependency: Relying on hardware for data storage and processing affects flexibility and interoperability.

Modern problems require modern solutions

To address the challenges mentioned above, you need an app modernization strategy in place. Start with defining the use case. This includes understanding what part of your IT ecosystem needs modernizing. Prioritize the requirements accordingly and look for the technology stack that can best assist you with your goal.

There are several approaches that enable you to overcome the legacy conundrum. Let us understand a few of the aspects in detail.

Modernizing data through app modernization

Siloed data is incompatible with other data sets. You often end up with incomplete and incompetent data which no longer can be used for further analysis. 

With data modernization, you can transfer outdated or siloed data to modern cloud-based databases, including structured and unstructured data. It helps you to enhance data security on the cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid IT environments.

Migrating to a new architecture

Legacy architecture makes it difficult for you to support breakthrough features such as API-based integrations, third-party products, etc. It also makes it challenging to add new features and customization according to customers’ demands.

The app modernization process allows you to migrate to a new and more advanced architecture using state-of-the-art solutions. You can provide your consumers with a high-performing application based on modern architecture. This process can also ensure a reduction in hosting and infrastructure maintenance costs.

Shifting from monolith to microservices

With single blocks of software like desktop apps, distributed architectures such as tier-2, tier-3 and so on, monolithic architecture has been the most used for software development. The key challenge with using monolith is the lack of scaling the solutions. While adding new features or making changes in the coding, the major drawback is increased system downtime.

With microservices, you can split your application into a set of smaller and interconnected services with microservices. Such an approach is beneficial for complexes as it simplifies the process for continuous development and deployment. The key advantage of using microservices is that it allows you to work on one module without hampering others during the process. 

Re-hosting to the cloud

The top reasons why you should consider to re-host your applications to the cloud include:

  • Aging servers
  • Potentially unreliable firewall appliances
  • Lack of optimum operational capacity

If you are not sure about adopting the cloud approach, you can also opt for a hybrid cloud infrastructure.
