 Application Modernisation

When an application is underperforming, unstable, unable to scale or just plain outdated, how do you transition to the next generation?

Modernising an application involves bringing technology up to current standards with an eye towards future innovation. By modernising your applications, the goals should include making the application modular so that discrete pieces can be easily exposed to other technologies (via APIs etc.), restructured or replaced; to improve application deployment and maintenance to accelerate innovation; and to make an application elastic, scalable, highly available, simplify disaster recovery and BCP. Other goals include:

  • Lowering development and operational costs
  • Incorporating latest responsive web technologies to allow seamless use across a variety of platforms and devices.

When to consider application modernisation:

  • Antiquated application landscape
  • Frequently troubled and problem prone application(s)
  • Legacy inherited systems
  • Reaching the end of life or support for applications
  • Undergoing ‘Fit for Future’ reviews
  • Looking to migrate workloads off premises to the cloud
  • Running into fundamental capacity limits
  • Applications that won’t integrate with others
  • In need of Mobile or device specific applications
