Application Modernization


Define your app modernization goals and strategy before taking action, discover and assess existing apps and environments with our cloud-first application modernization service to prepare for change.


During the implementation process, organizations develop new skills and modernize their apps through an iterative approach. This approach allows for flexibility to adapt the project scope and strategy as needed.


App modernization is a continuous process, not a one-time event. Once an organization has adopted a cloud-first approach, they can leverage cloud platform services and tools to enhance the security, governance, management, and optimization of their applications.

What is Application Modernization?

Application modernization refers to the process of updating and improving legacy applications, often with the goal of making them more efficient, secure, and easier to maintain. This can involve a variety of techniques, such as refactoring code, migrating to new platforms or languages, and incorporating new technologies like cloud computing or artificial intelligence. MDS empowers organizations stay competitive and keep pace with rapidly changing technology trends.

App Modernization Benefits

Faster Time to Market

By modernizing to a cloud-based infrastructure, organizations can free up resources and focus on innovation rather than maintenance. Cloud-based tools and services also accelerate the development process, resulting in a faster time to market.

Security and Reliability

Cloud-based modernization enables organizations to use built-in security and updating capabilities to protect their workloads. Other built-in features such as automation for tasks like high availability, disaster recovery, backups, and performance monitoring further enhance the security and performance of their applications.

Agility and Compatibility

By modernizing apps, organizations can ensure they are not only compatible with current technology but also able to evolve with future advancements. This allows for quick updates and changes that align with business needs. Automatic scaling capabilities also enable apps to maintain performance during high demand and reduce costs during low demand.

Effective Operations

Instead of starting from scratch, modernizing existing apps may be a more efficient and cost-effective approach. It allows organizations to capitalize on prior investments and retain current processes for continuity. Compared to introducing new apps, app modernization helps to maintain business continuity and minimize disruptions to existing operations.
