Modern Application Migration


Application migration is the process of moving software applications from one computing environment to another. This can include migrating applications from one data center to another, such as from a public to a private cloud, or from a company’s on-premises server to a cloud provider’s environment.

When companies decide to modernise web applications and move them to the cloud, or create new mobile or API applications, they have to evaluate the needs to fully re-architect existing apps and select the best approach to design modern new ones. Re-architecting an application by using an advanced approach like microservices could be an option but this depends on cost and time restraints.

Depending on the type of application, some lift & shift activities could be done without re-architecting. Lift and shift is the action of moving a workload to a newer or more modern environment like public or private cloud without altering the application’s code and basic architecture.

To optimise the cost-effectiveness of one organisation’s cloud migration strategy, it’s important to consider the needs of the business and requirements of the apps. It’s needed to determine:

  • Which apps require a transformation or re-architecting.
  • Which apps need to be only partially modernised.
  • Which apps to “lift and shift” directly to the cloud.
  • Which apps should be created with a cloud-native design.
  • Which applications are candidates for migration to cloud computing.

The following list could help to select the application candidates:

  • Applications that run infrequently but require significant computing resources when they run.
  • Applications that require rapid provisioning of infrastructure.
  • Applications built to provide and use APIs.
  • Applications that would require a capital expenditure and for which a recurring operating expense is preferred.
  • Applications used by mobile workers to manage their time and activity, and which contribute only limited information to the company’s broad management information databases.
  • Applications that are run in a time zone different from that where your company’s IT personnel are located.
  • Development, testing and prototyping of application changes, even if the final applications will be run on your own infrastructure.
  • Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications.
  • Loosely coupled applications.
  • Evaluation projects for which it is not certain that the application will be retained and licensed.
  • Business-to-Consumer (B2C), Peer-to-Peer (P2P) and Peer-to-Business (P2B) applications used by a broad base of consumers, where you do not know how many users will connect and when (i.e., they require rapid scaling of resources).
