Application modernization is the process of converting, rewriting or updating older software applications to make use of newer languages, frameworks or platforms. Also known as legacy modernization or software modernization, the typical goal is to maintain the value of the older application while migrating to a new platform that has added benefits, either for the user or the system.
There can be many benefits of application modernization, typically related to the new platform or technology that the legacy software is being ported to. Benefits for end users can include better interfaces, more stable environments, expanded integration capabilities and faster processing speed. Other benefits can include improving speed for new feature development, easier maintenance for DevOps teams, better options for redundancy and resiliency and improved scalability at a lower cost.
Common challenges in application modernization include the cost of modernization and ROI for the endeavor, change management and training on updated software, poorly refactored software that performs worse than the legacy version, overhead required for coexistence of legacy applications, and lack of holistic planning and strategy for the breadth of the application portfolio.
Some of the most common patterns for application modernization include:
