Application Modernisation

Modernise your legacy systems

Invest in your legacy software applications

Over time legacy software applications often form the backbone organisation and are ingrained and woven into the very DNA of the organisation. While at the time, these software applications were able to propel and revolutionise the organisation, they also become the very thing that stop or hinder progress in the future.
Today, we find organisations unable to benefit from advancement or leverage new digital technologies to create modern engaging and profitable experiences for customers and partners. Such as :

connect legacy systems to modern applications

minimise disruption to existing business systems

Application modernisation is a project designed to generate additional business value from existing, ageing, legacy applications by updating them with modern features and capabilities. By migrating your legacy applications, you can include the latest functionalities that better align with what your business needs to succeed.
Maintaining & supporting legacy applications while still being able to meet current day needs can be a time consuming and resource intensive affair. Especially when software frameworks and platforms becomes so outdated that it may not even be compatible with modern day systems.
Application Modernisation typically updated by making use of Cloud Architecture and Microservices to extract the really useful aspects of the application into smaller reusable components and exposing them via HTTP API endpoints or interacting with via Messaging or streaming based systems.
The benefits of application modernisation include improved velocity of new feature delivery, exposing the functionality of existing applications to be consumed via API by other services, and re-platforming applications from on-premises to cloud for the purpose of application scale and performance as well as long-term data center and IT strategy.
The most notable challenges with application modernisation are:
Trying to migrate from on-premise to cloud architecture or cloud native implementations with no consideration for the actual Return On Investment (ROI) can seriously conversely affect your organisations. 
When first attempting to migrate your applications to cloud native architectures you may only then discover the nature of their tight coupling to other existing systems and infrastructure. This could incur far more expense and significantly outweigh the benefits of the initial application modernisation efforts.

Key approaches for application modernisation

Achieve greater scalability and flexibility while reducing costs and ensuring system reliability.  Migrating high volume service loads to the cloud or re-host your applications to modern cloud environments.
microservices-based architecture implies decomposing large software components into smaller, loosely coupled pieces that can be operated independently. Microservices allow for faster deployments, efficient scalability, fault resistance, and flexibility, while experimenting with a new technology stack.
Adopting a Microservices approach requires implementing a containerisation strategy. Containerisation provides benefits such as portability across different cloud environments, efficiency in using compute resources, and scalability.
operating at scale, and the number of containers reaches hundreds of thousands, container orchestration comes to the rescue. It becomes possible to automate the deployment, management, scaling, availability, and networking of containers, while reducing human error.
