Frequently asked questions

Application modernization services deliver a range of benefits in the transformation process, including improved user satisfaction, enhanced compatibility, increased productivity, robust security, and higher scalability.

In the payments landscape, a typical example of application modernization is upgrading a card management platform to work on the cloud. Such a modernization project will include workflow automation, employing microservices architecture, upgrading to cloud-native code, and enabling horizontal scalability.

The goal of application modernization is to reduce dependence on monolithic applications that were meant to execute all tasks independently. This inherent behavior makes these applications code-heavy, less compatible with external solutions, and cost-inefficient. 

Application modernization is a process to upgrade monolithic applications for scale, efficiency, and security. The process involves examining the readiness of the application, identifying the right cloud service provider, automating workflows, testing it, and deploying the application in the cloud.
