Application Modernization

Business-Focused Application Modernization Services

As enterprises are modernizing, legacy applications are often the elephant in the room that create the inability to meet today’s business and customer needs. The task of modernizing these applications can be daunting which is why our application modernization services recommend you start simple and prove the value of a broader enterprise application modernization initiative that will support your interlinked experiences, active innovation, and continuous momentum.

Adapt to change and accelerate time to market

Your digital future relies on your application modernization efforts today.

Be ready to support constant change, embrace emerging technologies, and exceed customer expectations while accelerating your time to market.

Legacy applications tend to sit on islands that support a culture of fear of change since the cost and impact are often high. Todays need for applications are highly connected with deep interlinked experiences that embrace continuous momentum and active innovation supported by the efficiency and performance of adaptable software, automated delivery, and aligned cross-functional teams. Our application modernization approach will help you realize these benefits by prioritizing applications and capabilities that balance your organizational goals, risk, investment, talent, and timing.

Benefit #1 lorem

Increase Happiness

Yes, happiness. Both employee and customer happiness. As an application lead, marketer, or developer working with applications that provide restrictive capability, are bug prone, and constantly feeling like they are having to put out a fire, drains the fire in your belly to innovate. Customer's often feel similar pain but from their inability to do what they need done in the most convenient and least amount of effort way. Application modernization must put the customer first and reconsider the experience and how it makes people feel when its delivered.

Benefit #2 lorem

Increase Performance

An application modernization initiative will address performance bottlenecks or ability to scale by leveraging the native benefits of cloud and ensuring the software design can provide modular capability scaling. This often also reduces the cost of performance as well. Say goodbye to having your entire application come to a stand-still when a single capability is incurring high usage. There is no need for a bad customer experience because of software design.

Benefit #3 lorem

Reduce Cost

A pain often felt with dated applications is the high cost of change. These applications are usually littered with technical debt, lack of automated testing, manual deployments, restrictive quality assurance capability, and more that all increase the cost of change. To reduce this, a proper application modernization approach will ensure operational efficiency needs are designed from the start instead of a bolt-on later.

Benefit #4 lorem

Make the Experience Matter

When have you ever used a legacy application and were happy with the experience? Was it mobile friendly? Often the user experience during application modernization is put aside for more technology related drivers - those are very valuable as well but we mustn't forget who the application is serving, when, where, and why.

We believe the value of migrating your applications to Microsoft Azure cloud is realized with modernization. However, there are situations when lift and shift migrations make sense such as meeting data centre contract renewal deadlines or software license expiration. We help with both, but with modernization always as our primary goal.

02

Our focus is developing custom Azure cloud modern software applications. We've been building custom Microsoft based applications for over 15 years with our team of Microsoft Azure certified software developers. Our development approach uses modern practices with microservices, single-page applications, ASP.NET MVC, Identity Server, .NET based CMS applications such as Sitecore, and older .NET web form applications. We have the capability go deep in your applications and understand the impact the software design has on infrastructure.

We will help you get to the most appropriate answered tailored to your organization.

05

Yes. We have multiple ways we support helping you operate in the cloud. We can provide full responsibility with our "Operate with Assembly: Azure Cloud Managed Services" offering.
