Back to Where it All Belongs: Welcome the Enterprise Application Goliath

The differentiation is straight and clear. While its other three global leaders in the hyperscaler cloud space initiated with legendary consumer-faced software that shaped the computing and internet worlds, Oracle achieved arguably a similar feat for the enterprise vertical. Historically famed for its business solutions suite across the globe including databases, ERP, CRM, EPM, and related solutions, Oracle’s foray into the cloud segment with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) was bound to shake up the enterprise modernization industry. And, so it did. Today, OCI remains a critical choice for enterprises to migrate, transform their on-prem applications, businesses willing to create a harmonious environment on the cloud for their third-party and custom-built apps, and ISVs delivering their unique solutions to millions of enterprises globally. Development, re-architecture or modernization, multi-ecosystem connectivity, and delivery of business applications to end users has never been more agile and scalable. Add to Oracle’s deepening focus on inspiring application environments that function seamlessly across the OCI, private clouds, hybrid ecosystems, and other multiple cloud solutions, the deal is further sweetened for end user firms and providers alike.

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 OCI 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 OCI application modernization services

Retire

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.

Oracle 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.
