Very often organizations feel pressure to move to the Cloud without fully understanding the level of their readiness to operate in a new infrastructure paradigm. It’s true that during migration from the traditional data-center approach to the Cloud, applications need to be tuned up for the new environment and requirements like security and scaling should be taken into account. Such changes need a specific competency which is not often present within traditional development teams. Sometimes it’s due to limited experience with Cloud architectures and frameworks, or lacking the best practices in combining Cloud-native features with traditional container-based on VM-based applications. But a reliable Cloud software development partner can fill this gap. Cloud offers numerous possibilities in terms of agility, scalability, and performance. But to fully leverage its immense potential and keeping the cost efficiency, oftentimes application modernization services are required first.
