I’m still here at HP’s Pathways to Cloud road show in Boston. I am listening to one of the speakers talk about different pathways to cloud. Whether you’re considering moving to private cloud, virtual private cloud, or public cloud, we see that your applications are front and center both as an opportunity and as an obstacle.
Some of the issues are the traditional ones we see with applications, including:
- The IT platform they run on
- The languages and technologies used to build them
- The databases that support them
Some of these issues, though, are tied to your implementation of the applications. These include things like:
- The stability of the application
- The volume of support requests received for the application
- The change in velocity of the application
- The interface complexity it may have
If either or both of these types of issues are present in your applications, you have to address them if you want to move these applications to cloud computing. How do you do that? It’s no surprise that the answer is Applications Modernization. In particular, choosing the right modernization strategies for your applications will help you address both the traditional technical applications issues and the implementation-specific issues that we find with applications. So how do you get started?
I would recommend the Applications Transformation to Cloud Workshop, which is designed to look at specific applications in depth in order to fully understand what the issues are in moving that application to cloud and the recommended actions that can help you successfully move it to cloud and take advantage of cloud delivery for the services you provide to the business.
