Application modernization is the process of converting applications into a scalable cloud-based environment using the latest technology. Instead of totally replacing an existing system, modernization promotes the evolution of your team’s apps. A good modernization strategy extends the life of an organization’s applications. It also allows a company to secure its investments while refreshing its software portfolio to take advantage of new infrastructure, tools, languages, and other technological advancements.
What is Application Modernization?
App modernization is an ideal means of attracting customers and bringing in new business.
How Your Company Can Benefit
A smart modernization approach can reduce the resources required to run apps, improve resiliency and increase deployment reliability. As a result, an application modernization strategy is now a normal part of any company’s overall digital transformation. Top benefits include:
Bugs, application maintenance costs, and scalability are all issues with an antiquated system. An upgraded system helps you save money by decreasing the cost of having developers maintain code, in addition to the reduction of program incidents. When a company decides to expand its operations, it can add new services or procedures that add value to the demands of its consumers, thus bolstering their income stream.
If your organization continues to use out-of-date software or technology, your employees’ satisfaction will suffer, which will have a direct influence on their productivity. A modern system is easier to diagnose, and issues can be resolved without causing application to crash. This means there will be fewer incidents to be concerned about and the personnel on your IT team may detect and fix problems, as well as create new features.
Agility & Future Readiness
Businesses can use application modernization to create new features and services that correspond with existing business goals. Companies can also customize these functionalities to ensure that legacy apps continue to be useful. The majority of your apps can be managed more reliably if they operate on container platforms. Your vital applications, however, must evolve in order to stay up with changing technology, meet user expectations, and quickly offer new capabilities.

Depending on the size of your application portfolio, our Microsoft backed App Modernization Assessment can run from 3-6 weeks. Tallan uses a 3 phased approach, which includes a Strategy & Plan workshop, ideation and architecture design session, a CAF Gap Analysis, and a migration plan for modernization of Apps to PaaS. For your assessment, Tallan will provide a cost consumption estimate, reference architecture design, and a modernization plan. They key components that your organization can expect are:
Application Portfolio Rationalization
Tallan will analyze your organization’s entire application portfolio with identification of up to 5 application candidates to provide deeper analysis, including reference architecture and a modernization plan.
Microsoft Azure and Cloud Profiling
We’ll then conduct deeper analysis on up to 5 applications to develop a modernization plan and provide real-time data on server and application performance to support a more detailed cloud strategy discussion.
Finally, Tallan will help facilitate future planning through a team presentation and hand-off, with detailed performance reporting, virtualization architecture, cost consumption estimates, and support timelines to orchestrate end-of-life transitions and product innovation
