Enterprises have adopted a wait and watch approach thus far, to the changing dynamics of application development. There is too much at stake to disturb the robustness and stability of applications that have become the backbone of businesses. This is more true of COTS (Commercial Off-shelf Third Part Systems) with huge customization over the years and hence the tag “legacy” systems. In today’s world of hyper-competition, agility and flexibility have become keys to the successful transformation of software-driven organizations.
Development environments, programming skills, software tools, and technology disruptions have impacted enterprises so much that they are shaken out of lethargy. Cloud is making a big impact in the way enterprises now think of building applications, hosting them on virtual machines, scaling as needed and shutting down data centers. The SDLC processes have become agile for quite some time, but the operations have become nimbler with the adoption of automation, continuous integration and deployment paradigm.
Performance of legacy applications in the Cloud environment is often sub-optimal due to inherent dependencies between logical components or modules and or data access methods. There is a need to refactor or rewrite applications to leverage the different Cloud services and newer development tools like MVC frameworks, Serverless architecture, etc., Front ends need to be more responsive to preserve user experience and backend systems have to handle functionally independent services at scale (Micro-services).
