In simple terms, cloud migration of legacy applications is a process of moving existing applications and their components from on-premises infrastructure to a cloud-based one.

With the help of cloud migrations, businesses will gain benefits like better scalability, security, efficiency, speed, team collaboration, less upkeeping cost and better end-user satisfaction.

The legacy application is not replaced but only moved to a new platform, the functions and features of the systems remain almost the same. However, businesses will also have an option to add additional features to the system as the new cloud platform will be more compatible with the latest technologies.

Since we are not replacing the entire system, the overall cost of modernising legacy applications is less compared to replacing them with a new one or rebuilding them entirely.

It is also more beneficial to maintain the legacy application as the compatibility, uptime, and the cost of upkeeping legacy systems will be on a downward trend each day.

How much cheaper is cloud computing?

Even though it’s a time-consuming process, the cloud can provide extensive financial benefits like budget savings and increased workplace productivity. Companies can save an average of 15% on all IT costs by migrating to the cloud. To learn more, drop us a message.
