Although businesses are rapidly shifting their application portfolios to the cloud, most also remain heavily dependent on dozens or even hundreds of legacy, on-premises apps. Modernizing and cloud-enabling these older apps can be an exceedingly difficult task. Simply discovering all the applications in use within the organization and mapping their dependencies is a time-consuming manual process. Because it’s seldom possible to “lift and shift” applications to the cloud, organizations will need developers who have a working knowledge of older programming languages and development environments. Plus, there’s the risk that software modifications could lead to data loss or cascading failures of related apps and systems.
