Where Transformation Truly Conforms: Mastering the Application Wave on the Journey to the Cloud

There would be over 500 million apps in the next few years, up from 3 million today. The internet would constitute 5 billion websites by 2023, up from 1.7 billion currently.

Those are colossal numbers, vehemently highlighting our digital-first lifestyles and the exploding inclination of enterprises to adopt digitally augmented business models. The latter has been conventionally accomplished with enterprise operational platforms and applications such as ERP, SCM, HRMS, Billing, Accounting, CRM, and more. However, historically, such applications have been acquired on on-prem licenses and run from the acquirer firm’s private datacenters. In short, these businesses remain fully responsible for application operations, maintenance, security, and even upgrades to an extent. That’s a significantly lot of administrative overhead, de-focusing tech leaders from their core responsibilities and visions. The market, on the flip, demands agility. How can enterprises indulge in delivering frequent innovations enveloped within neat digital experiences for consumers if the core platforms and applications running their internal functions encounter frequent delays, downtimes, and are hugely expensive to maintain and upgrade?

Application modernization on the cloud solves that dilemma. And, that's exactly how and why the above projected digital reality would truly conform.

A transformation is imminent.

65% organizations would aim to aggressively modernize applications by 2023 around the world

Application Modernization saves 15-35% annual infra savings including upto 70% costs on hardware, software, and resources

Automation is the Top priority for enterprises adopting application modernization

refactor modernization strategy icon in aws cloud application modernization services

Refactor/ Rearchitect

This phase or approach involves the most effort and expenses as the existing on-prem applications, databases, and workloads are significantly over-hauled, often at the codebase levels, to move them to the cloud. A common approach in this phase is to break up monolithic structures into microservice architectures for advanced performance on the cloud. Hence, such an approach ensures leveraging the best features of the cloud as the software is redesigned to match the cloud’s native environment.

retire modernization strategy icon in aws cloud application modernization services

Retire

This practice involves the recognition of applications or platforms that are redundant and would cause unnecessary load/overprovisioning on the cloud thereby shooting up operational costs. Under such circumstances, firms might opine to retire and replace the application altogether in favor of a cloud-friendlier version.

retain modernization strategy icon in aws cloud application modernization services

Retain

Businesses might opt to keep some legacy, on-prem applications running as they are delivering high performances and linked to critical projects. In such a case, the other core systems might run from the cloud and the retained on-prem applications might operate standalone or in sync with the cloud apps via APIs.

AWS Application Modernization - FAQs

  • What is meant by App modernization on the Cloud?

    -

    Application modernization on cloud entitles customizing, rearchitecting, or fine-tuning applications to seamlessly integrate and run with the adopted cloud platform.

    Legacy applications are often hardwired to specific systems, kernels, or backends and hence perform poorly on cloud if simply lifted and shifted.

    To leverage the best of the advanced cloud architecture and ensure high workload performance, modernizing applications should be on the top of the bucket list for enterprise owners.

  • How do you achieve application modernization?

    -

    Application modernization could be done in six fundamental approaches or the 6 Rs: Repurchase, Rehost, Replatform, Refactor, Retire, Retain.

    The first approach involves simple transition of the usage of an on-prem software to its cloud version, essentially changing licenses.

    Rehost involves lifting and shifting applications as is to the cloud environment while Replatform includes the same methodology but with a few customizations for better performance on the cloud.

    Refactor or Rearchitect involves a complete overhaul of the applications, including breaking down monolithic structures into simpler modules or microservices and redesigning codebases to not only migrate them to cloud but making them cloud-ready end-to-end.

    Retire and Retain involves practices to replace worn-out, redundant software or retaining existing, highly critical on-prem applications as-is, respectively.

  • What are the main components of application modernization?

    -

    Application modernization impacts the entire app’s lifecycle, inputs, and outputs.

    Hence, to fully modernize applications, enterprises must also refactor app databases, fine tune database management platforms, modify application networks-protocols-libraries, customize servers, integrate with DevOps, and streamline app security.

    Firms can leverage services of application modernization partners like Cloud4C or native cloud-tools to achieve the above without disruption.
