Between the need for business agility and cost savings, many legacy applications will need to embrace current technology standards.

Modernization can involve strategies such as re-platforming, re-hosting, re-coding, re-architecting, re-engineering, or replacing existing software to improve efficiency, reduce operating costs, and prepare the business for future growth.

Modernization is about upgrading the technology stack, transforming the business model, and adapting to a changing market environment.

The benefits of application modernization extend beyond tangible metrics such as cost savings, improved performance, or higher productivity. Intangible benefits include increased agility and responsiveness to market changes, improved alignment with business objectives, enhanced collaboration and communication within the organization, and improved employee morale and customer experience.

In April 2023, Techstrong Research polled its community of DevOps, cloud native, cybersecurity, and digital transformation readers and viewers to take their pulse on their progress, challenges, and technology choices for application modernization. In this briefing, find out what insights they shared.
