Application Modernisation

Application Modernisation

Help realise all the benefits of cloud by modernising your applications.

Application modernisation is more than a technical necessity.

The world is moving at a faster pace now more than ever — and business moves at the same speed. The greater use of real-time data, as well as growing expectations from customers, is backing the old IT model into a tight corner.

When you work with us, there’s no IT platform alliance or vendor lock-in. We’ll work with you and our industry-leading partners to bring together the best cloud technologies to create the right solution for lasting change.

We can help modernise your legacy applications to help deliver all the benefits of cloud—and help your business become more agile, efficient and secure, whilst driving innovation based on rich insights.

Our expertise

For any application modernisation, we’ve developed an approach guided by your business needs and the application to ensure that you get the right solution at the right cost, and reaping maximum value from the cloud.


We lift an app unchanged from your existing environment to the cloud—also known as a “lift and shift.”


We change some design and code when lifting an app to a new environment, so it can run on cloud natively.


This involves fundamental changes to an app’s architecture, or consolidating multiple apps to make you future-ready.


We completely rebuild an app from the ground up to incorporate your new technologies or needs.


We can decommission an app because it’s no longer necessary or useful for your business requirements (e.g. another app can perform better).


We replace your app with an off-the-self software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, which can be consumed as a software subscription.
