By undergoing legacy application transformation, your company can gain huge time and cost savings thanks to optimizing the way your technology and software are managed.
Application transformation drives you to obtain resiliency and enables your enterprise to operate more effectively. Cloud native applications empower consistency and provide you with confidence in delivering software.
Moving from the legacy software to modern applications enables you to implement automation into your delivery process. Using automation tools, you gain agility, accelerate the release cycle and work smarter.
Your company can go through application transformation with ease by using the help of digital transformation consulting teams. The process requires expertise and proficiency in both - cloud infrastructure and a culture of building cloud software.
Grape Up provides own way of transforming legacy software into modern apps. The practice consists of three stages:
During this process, an application is verified on what has to be done to provide a successful transition. You have to identify key workloads that need to be migrated to the cloud and evaluate the app’s compatibility with the 12-factor app methodology. To avoid delays in the transformation process, identify potential bottlenecks ahead.
On this stage, you are going through iterative application refactoring that uses 12-factor principles and microservices pattern. The transition to cloud native requires incremental decoupling of the monolith into a microservices-based application. Your legacy apps are broken down into smaller units and packed into containers to accelerate its orchestration.
A successful legacy application transformation is completed with ensuring long-term resiliency and maintainability of your application through setting up CI/CD pipelines. Implementing CI/CD automation provides you with improvements in delivery, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
Depending on your technology stack, state of your software and your business goals, your applications may need different solutions.
The simplest process of transforming software comes mainly to lift-and-shift the app from an on-premise or existing environment to a new cloud infrastructure. This approach allowing fast migration, without disruption to users, and is a smooth introduction to further optimization.
To preserve the way an app works while moving it to the cloud, companies decide to reshape and modernize software through re-platforming. The process focuses on implementing the basics of Twelve factors and moving an app from its existing environment to the cloud infrastructure.
The fundamental software transformation is achieved by breaking down the monolith and its waterfall architecture and rewriting the app using twelve principles methods and implementing proven cloud native patterns - microservices, containers, and automation tools.
By providing you with an experienced digital transformation consulting team, we empower you to deal with the most challenging aspects of legacy application transformation.
Selecting the right one app - this one that is the most representative to your software and the easiest to replatform at the same time enables you to start the process with ease.
While working on transforming your software, you need both - experts in cloud native and people how understanding your infrastructure or are able to gain that knowledge within your organization.
As the app modernization may be done differently - re-hosting, re-platforming or re-architecting - you have to make the right decision on how advanced should be your software transformation.
Moving to cloud native gives your company agility and resilience that couldn’t be reached with legacy architecture. To get the most out of the quality shift, you have to master the monitoring of app performance, security, and network traffic, which need proven expertise.
Some enterprises narrow down the transformation to moving their servers to the cloud instead of focusing on deploying cloud-native apps. It's a tendency that can’t provide a sustainable competitive advantage.
Making sure that your software will be working effectively while re-platformed and after the process is vital to providing your services without disruption. Choosing partners that ensure their commitment to service-level agreements is the key to go through the transformation without risk.
To enhance the power of executed transformation to cloud native, your company needs to implement DevOps, Agile, Extreme Programming, Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Delivery. These approaches not only allowing to properly develop software in a new environment but also make it easier for your employees to adapt to the changes in technology.
