Imagination and innovation drive the software industry. This is particularly evident as there’s going to be an 11% shift away from traditional modes of IT delivery. Moving onto a cloud platform is the solution you must consider to revamp your business. If only it was easy as a whistle, a swish of your hand and your cloud appears. Every software business should ask some smart questions before making the switch - why should you move to the Cloud, and how should you do it?
Alternatively, you could look to the “lift and shift” option - that is, simply transfer your legacy software to the Cloud through simplistic cloud migration tools, without taking the opportunity to optimize or innovate. Or, you could do the opposite, and completely rewrite your system for the Cloud platform. The only issue with that is that, over time, you will encounter the same issues of a non-iterative system that you did before your legacy migration.
And then there’s your fourth option - using the magic of the cloud to build your cloud system on the Codebots platform. An aPaaS option can grow with your business, can change and adapt as you need it to, and each iteration of your software application from aPaaS can represent a new opportunity to learn and respond to the needs of your customers. It’s faster, better, and reusable.
It’s faster because generation can create up to 60% of the code you need to get your application going. It’s better because you’ve got quality infrastructure and strong testing practices to make sure your product runs as smoothly as possible. It’s reusable because the core components and capabilities of your new application will be transferable to new projects you may wish to release in the future.
So, what have you got to lose in transferring your legacy software to a Cloud platform? There really is no ‘why’ and ‘how’ of cloud migration - only a ‘when’ and ‘now’!
