Modernization of Applications

Application modernization is the process of modernising outdated software to interact with newer infrastructural platforms, frameworks, and programming languages. The term application modernization is frequently used to describe this technique. It is comparable to remodelling an older home to benefit from advancements in efficiency, safety, structural integrity, and other areas in software development. Legacy modernisation extends the lifespan of an organization’s applications while simultaneously utilising technological advancements, as opposed to completely replacing or retiring an existing system.

At Wmad, we help businesses by updating their current portfolios and supplying future-proof features to help them realise the true business value. Our Center of Excellence creates a strategy and plan for application modernisation after evaluating the portfolio on a number of criteria. Our enterprise application modernization services let enterprises innovate swiftly and grow quickly while guaranteeing business continuity by using advancements in Cloud, Web, Mobility, Blockchain, and Analytics.

Application Restructuring

Our process for transforming legacy applications involves creating new code, transferring data, and re-architecting software. With specially designed applications, we help you save time and drastically reduce IT and maintenance costs.

Raise and move

Rrefers to shifting an existing application from an outdated infrastructure, such as an on-premises server, to a more modern one, such as a public cloud platform. By using this method, you simply move the application “as is,” making few to no modifications to its architecture or underlying code. This indicates that while it is typically the least time-consuming option, depending on the application, it may not always be the best approach.


This method of application modernisation comprises taking an existing programme and overhauling a sizable portion of its underlying code to make it more compatible with a new setting, typically cloud infrastructure. This strategy frequently necessitates rewriting code in addition to a significant restructure of the current codebase. If a development team wants to divide a monolithic application into more manageable, independent parts—an architectural option known as microservices—it may choose this strategy. To exploit the advantages of cloud-native infrastructure and techniques, like containers and container orchestration, they might use microservices.

Why modernisation of applications?

By updating its deployment and protecting its investments, an organisation can benefit from modern infrastructure, tools, languages, and other technological advancements. Among other advantages, a strong application modernization plan can lower the amount of resources needed to run an application, increase the frequency and dependability of deployments, and enhance uptime and resilience. As a result, an enterprise’s overall digital transformation strategy frequently includes an application modernization plan.

Essential tools for modernising applications


Cloud Computing

When individuals talk about modernising existing apps, they often mean converting them to work in current cloud environments. Public cloud platforms, private clouds, and hybrid clouds—generally speaking, on-premises systems combined with public and/or private clouds—are some of these.



Containers are a cloud-focused approach for packaging, delivering, and running workloads and applications. Greater scalability, mobility, and operational efficiency are some of the broad advantages of containerization, which make it ideal for cloud architecture, particularly multi-cloud and hybrid cloud systems.



This is more of an architectural choice than a technology. You decouple separate components into smaller, distinct pieces that may be deployed, updated, and operated independently rather than creating and running an application as a single, comprehensive codebase, often known as a monolith or monolithic development.


Automation and Orchestration

In the context of software development, orchestration refers to the automation of a variety of container-related operational operations, such as networking, scaling, and deployment. To ensure that the development, operations, and security teams can sustainably manage their modern apps at scale, automation in general is a crucial idea and technology.

Modernization Trends

Multi-cloud and hybrid cloud are two of the most prominent developments in legacy app modernisation. Utilizing two or more public cloud services for cost reduction, flexibility, availability, and other purposes is referred to as multi-cloud. The term “hybrid cloud” refers to a combination of on-premises infrastructure, public and private clouds, and both, typically with integration between these environments.

Instead of forcing software teams to completely rewrite their most important programmes, modernization enables them to improve current apps for these increasingly dispersed computing models. Multi-cloud and hybrid clouds are therefore two of the most important drivers of legacy modernization.

The use of containers and orchestration by the IT sector as tools for packaging, deploying, and managing workloads and applications is a related modernization trend. Although a classic app can be containerized, microservices architecture, which takes a more detached approach to development and operations, is seen as the best fit for containers.
