As more and more companies are starting to face a growing online market, their need for modern, customized software is also increasing. Organizations of all sizes are equally impacted.
Fortunately, as with most challenges, in this case, there is a solution – .NET App Modernization.
There are many advantages to such a process and there are many ways to achieve remarkable results. Of course, depending on the size and scope of your company, the methods will vary. However, we will review a few of the advantages applicable to most businesses worldwide with regard to this type of modernization.
First and foremost, affecting everybody to one extent or another, comes cost reduction. Applications and systems that have been in operation for a long time (also called legacy systems) usually require significant effort for support and new development.
Their maintenance and upgrade are rather costly in terms of training and employment. Modernization simply eliminates the whole issue, making the apps accessible to far more qualified professionals.
Automation is another relevant advantage, somewhat also pertaining ultimately to cost reduction. With the .net app modernization, services can be broken down into subservices, making these easier to manage, test, and deliver. IT staffing and training costs once more go down.
There is virtually almost no downtime at all when migrating to more modern apps. Everything can be done efficiently, avoiding disturbances in the regular business flow. No need for expensive licenses. While legacy systems usually require very particular and specific – therefore costly – licenses, many modern applications require alternative and usually cheaper one.
Oftentimes they require no licensing at all. It is easier, safer, and cheaper to use cloud-based technologies. No need for own servers, own staff to maintain the servers, huge server costs, and most importantly, immense security expenses. The cloud is a universally adaptable and efficient solution.
Larger talent pool. More people are familiar with the latest software and applications and cloud-based solutions than with legacy systems. Hence, there is far more talent to choose from, making the hiring process competitive and beneficial for the company
The examples could go on, this is only the beginning.
The core principle of modernization nowadays is the migration of whatever apps may be used into the cloud. This strategy purports two major points: cost reduction and business growth.
These are however, the basics. In close connection come other major benefits, of which we will only list a few. Breakdown of the company’s services into many subservices, which are easy to use and manage.
These become independent apps, so if one fails, there is no need to close shop for the day. This also makes downtimes rare and easy to fix. The system’s reliability guarantees high income and lower maintenance and repair costs.
Polyglot architecture, meaning the business can avail itself of multiple programming languages, thus becoming more adaptable and flexible.
Namely, at any given time,even if part of the system becomes obsolete or defective in any way, there will always be other parts of the system, in other programming languages, ready to take over.
Also, that means that the business will never need to rely on a single type of professional. Analysis and monitoring. The more insight into the company’s processes, the better.
A successful company is run with full knowledge of what works,what does not and what needs to be improved. Application performance management and analytics will do precisely that.
Adaptive solutions. Although the end goal would be to have most of the services cloud-based, this can happen in a flexible manner, depending on the organization’s needs and priorities. Many smaller companies opt for an incremental approach to this investment, and due to the sub-service breakdown made possible by the modernization, this is no longer an impediment to growth.
Cross-platform support. The benefits here in terms of cost reduction are not to be ignored. .NET can be operated on Linux, which saves very many costs in licensing.
Security. Cloudbased solutions are currently the most secure. Payments, information transfer, databases,and any other organization-related business secrets are no longer “open-source” to hackers due to loopholes, backdoors, system weaknesses, etc.
This system offers full protection and easy access in easy-to-learn processes. Depending on the particular organization, the benefits are far more comprehensive and varied. Our team will be happy to assist you with more explanations.
