Forrester Now Tech: Application Modernization and Migration Services, Q1 2019
Modernizing legacy systems and migrating to the cloud can help improve your digital journey, but it is a huge undertaking. When you decide to embrace the change, you need to make sure you do it right. Modernization and migration activities can fast-track your digital transformation journey and accelerate migration to the cloud while reducing costs associated with legacy technologies. But to achieve these benefits, you must either turn to a service provider with years of experience or attempt to build a team with the right skills in-house. With scarce legacy and cloud-native development skills, application modernization service suppliers not only help you accelerate cloud migration strategies, but also optimize applications for your unique business requirements.
In the recent Forrester Now Tech: Application Modernization and Migration Services, Q1 2019 report, principal analyst Bill Martorelli explores how service providers are helping businesses optimize applications to capitalize on modern technology and digital requirements, not just move them, which is a key source of business value. Through their experience working with cloud-native technologies for multiple clients and use cases, service companies help customers “containerize” their applications and leverage microservices, cloud and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) platforms for agile innovation and digital business needs.
