Modern businesses are increasingly moving towards cloud computing, as it benefits in variety, for example total cost of ownership (TCO), flexibility in usage through subscriptions, pay as you go models, data handling, improved security systems, high availability across multiple regions around the world and so much more to add on it. A need for application migration can occur once you have these multiple advantages for your system, and the only dilemma is which application to move, and which applications should not be on the cloud. Our team experts will help you solve your dilemmas and confusions, a technically sound system on the cloud is our goal to proceed.
What is application migration to cloud?
Process of transferring your software applications to the virtual space or from one environment to the other, which can be of various types, between servers, data centres, or moving from public to private to clouds, and the other way round.
Tour of migration path:
- Rehosting - Lifting and shifting
- Replatforming - Lifting, Adjusting and shifting
- Refactoring - Redevelopment of the application
- Retaining/ Retire - Retaining the best features of the application, keeping it in hybrid models and retiring the ones not in use.
Factors that one considers during migration, is being taken care of through the following ways:
Our experts analyse your current IT environments and build strategic goals.
Considering this as an important factor, it is important to estimate your resources and total cost of ownership (TCO), hence while planning our team budgets all the declared price per user and the price per usage.
Identifying the risks is something that comes after planning of migration as an end task, the potential risks are encountered during and in the following process of migration, while the process is going on, we keep regular checks on the system to provide a secure shift of applications.
Usually this factor depends on how big the migration is, and things get delayed if the requirements aren't met, hence our team plans out the requirement beforehand, so as to provide you best service.
Legacy application migration to cloud.
Speaking vividly, the older the application, more challenges it brings, henceforth becomes less worthwhile, has to be migrated to the cloud can be critical to the business, as its problematic in many ways, for example its not cost effective to maintain, can raise immense security concerns of data if its no longer patched, may start to perform poorly in modernised computing environments. The company has to be very thorough with the assessments of legacy applications before transferring them to the cloud, all the factors that are above mentioned have to be taken in consideration.
We look forward to all these factors, to ensure your firm is in the right hands, your job is to understand each application's value in terms of the following factors
- Impact on business.
- Ability to fulfil crucial needs.
- Timeliness and importance of data.
- Size, complexity and manageability.
- Cost of maintenance and development.
- Increased value from migration to the cloud.
Application modernisation service include custom development offerings that can make your legacy applications for use in the cloud by modifying them to your comfort of security and manageability so that they will run in containers or virtualized environments otherwise known as cloud
