What you should know about application modernization?

Application modernization — what does it mean in practice?

Application modernization involves transforming existing software to extend its utility in a new technological and business context.

Adapting currently owned applications to new technologies is based on the following action strategies:

  • changing the architecture (rearchitecting);
  • rebuilding components (rebuilding);
  • rewriting software code (recoding);
  • refactoring existing code (refactoring);
  • transferring applications to a different physical environment (rehosting);
  • moving to a different PaaS or SaaS platform (replatforming);
  • replacing with a new (more modern) application (replacement);
  • retiring applications whose functionality is no longer justified in business terms (retirement).
  • Deteriorating security — legacy applications are based on old programming libraries that lack security updates, increasing the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches.
  • Unsatisfactory system performance and reduced responsiveness of applications due to the use of outdated user experience (UX) standards.
  • Lack of a mobile service channel version of the application or the need to create an independent application.
  • Decreased solution stability — limited availability lowers the credibility of the service.
  • High costs — old applications use outdated solutions, programming languages, and compilers that are no longer supported, or the support costs are very high.
  • Lack of compliance — old applications often do not comply with new regulations, standards, or data exchange formats, and the lack of complete documentation and limited contact with the author and licensor further complicates the situation.
  • New user behaviors—a significant indicator to consider is a decline in application traffic, which may result from an outdated system or a product that is not well-adapted to its users.
  • Improved scalability and efficiency.
  • Faster delivery of new applications and updates through CI/CD.
  • Enhanced security through multichannel and multi-stage authentication, and risk dispersion via microservices.
  • Architectural agility through the use of microservices architecture.
  • Simplified portability through containerization.
  • Easier management through automation.
  • Openness to innovative solutions in the future.

Application modernization — how can we help you?

Assessment and planning of modernization

We begin with a thorough analysis of your current application and IT infrastructure. Based on this, we develop a personalized modernization plan that considers your business and technological goals. Our aim is to create an efficient and realistic transformation pathway.

Consulting and technology selection

Our experts assist in choosing the most suitable technologies and tools to be used in the new environment. This ensures that the modernization carried out will be based on proven solutions.

Architecture analysis and decomposition

We conduct a detailed analysis of your application’s architecture. We identify dependencies and prepare a transition plan to a microservices’ architecture, including designing APIs and other key components.

Rewriting and adapting applications

We collaborate with your development team in the process of rewriting applications to the new architecture. We provide recommendations and technical support to ensure everything goes according to plan.

Implementation and testing

We develop an implementation strategy and conduct comprehensive tests, including unit, integration, and load testing. Our goal is to ensure that the new architecture is stable and meets all requirements.

Orchestration and containerization

We implement management and orchestration tools, such as Kubernetes and service mesh, to facilitate the management and scaling of your application in the new environment.

Deployment and monitoring

We provide support in the deployment phase, including monitoring the performance and stability of applications. We also introduce solutions for logging and error tracking.

Integration with DevOps and CI/CD

We introduce DevOps practices and implement CI/CD solutions to streamline the developmental and operational processes in your organization.

Optimization and continuous improvement

After deployment, we continue our collaboration, monitoring the effects of modernization and introducing necessary optimizations and improvements.

Documentation preparation

At the end, we create comprehensive technical documentation so that everyone can understand how the infrastructure works.

Dedicated training

We organize training sessions for your team to ensure efficient management of the new environment.
