Application Modernization: The Big Three

Architecture, Infrastructure and Delivery

The discussion around application modernization today is focused on three core areas i.e. the architecture (Monolithics), infrastructure (on-premises physical servers), and delivery (DevOps). Organizations today need help with how these legacy applications can be brought into cloud architectures and release patterns in a reliable and efficient manner.

Digital Transformation adoption is the way for an organization to survive in today’s fast-changing environment. Modern infrastructure is necessary for a digital transformation since outdated infrastructure might impede the development ability of a business to produce fast and flexible work, hence increasing the downtime to market.

Organizations are employing agile methodologies to take advantage of automation and data processing technologies to remain competitive. Utilizing innovative, futuristic technologies, businesses are able to provide groundbreaking customer experiences, spur innovation, and quickly adjust to constantly changing market demands. 

Businesses are transforming towards cloud-centric solutions where Application Modernization plays a vital role to improve operational efficiency and cost reductions. The capacity of developers to create apps with cutting-edge features and deploy them rapidly with the adoption of new cloud-native technologies is crucial to the success of the digital transformation.

-Transform The Monolith Into The Cloud

Application Migration to the cloud is often done by following VM-base (lift and shift) process. Containerization is considered the best way to move an application to the cloud due to its rapid and exclusive adoption of Kubernetes platforms. The concept of containerizing is to get the application to run inside the container. Applications are hence enabled to function reliably on any computing platform. Operational activities using containers, include as deployment, scaling, and networking, are referred to as orchestration. Containers make it possible to deploy and process software components at scale (both legacy applications and microservices) and allow portability between two environments. 

While adopting containerization, the focus is on cost reduction, simplified operations, and streaming cloud migration to the Kubernetes platform. Additionally, on achieving a single operational model that both cloud-native applications and legacy applications may utilize. Microservices and containers provide both speed and simplicity, and their use is growing quickly.


-Use of APIs To Make On-Premises Assets Visible

Assets that are challenging to enable the cloud are permitted to use APIs. New applications are given access to use the features by externalizing the applications with an API. An Open API-Specified (REST) interface is typically required for this activity in order for the interface to be detected and managed.


-Refactor The Monolith Into Microservices 

In Refactoring, large JavaScript files and the monolith are broken down into smaller, loosely, coupled collections of deployable components as suggested by the programming model. These smaller components are not independent microservices from the perspective of end-to-end delivery. By using this approach, individual microservice paths can be decoupled and can enable the strangler process


-Incorporate Capabilities As Microservices 

A great method to reap the benefits of application modernization for the cloud is to enhance an application with additional business functions. The application can use a wide range of cutting-edge cloud services, including AI, industry, analytics, and domain services.


-Enable Monolith Strangling 

Replace functions with new implementations to gradually remove the monolith from service. Container-focused application modernization is consistent with the large enterprise usage of hybrid clouds. It enables multi-cloud deployments that can span private, various public, and on-premises clouds using Kubernetes-based container platforms like Red Hat and OpenShift
