Application and data modernization solutions

Move beyond migration to embrace modernization. Companies are looking for ways to rethink their business models and processes to drive more collaboration, respond more rapidly to fluctuating market changes and improve overall user experiences. With modernization, businesses can create even more value and accelerate their transformation through reinvention:

Reinvent what’s possible: Our application modernization solutions help your business rebuild and redesign new cloud architecture and operating systems designed to increase agility, flexibility and scalability across critical business functions. As a result, your business moves from an outdated legacy system to a modern infrastructure with on-demand resources.

Turn data into advantage: Our data modernization moves legacy databases to modern databases with advanced technology and capabilities. Your business can benefit from the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to create more intelligent and high-performing customer experiences. Additionally, data lakes and analytics can help improve decision-making, save time and increase efficiency by putting your data to work.

Our approach to modernization

We’re reinventing the way your applications and infrastructure are built using our industry expertise and leading cloud-native tools and technologies. With our iterative build approach, we help your business become more efficient and responsive to quick changes. We leverage our industry standard automation tools and cloud service providers (CSP) funding models to build a cloud modernization strategy that aligns with your business. Here are some of the modernization approaches we have experience in:

Monolith to Microservices

Microservices are a collection of smaller, independently running bits of code that make complex cloud applications faster and easier to scale. We can help you break up large monolithic applications into singular units for scalability and increased agility.

Containers and Kubernetes

Containers contain essential software components to run in a self-sufficient, isolated environment; they make your applications in the cloud work more efficiently. We have extensive experience working with open source platforms such as kubernetes to simplify the management of your containerized workloads.

Serverless architecture

Serverless architecture is a way to build applications without requiring server management. Serverless allows developers to focus on your application development instead of the headaches of managing and operating servers or runtimes.

Mainframe modernization

Mainframe modernization improves legacy mainframe infrastructure and applications. Our end-to-end solutions reinvent costly, traditional mainframes by bringing them to the cloud to ensure business agility and operational excellence.


Migration moves your most critical applications and data centers securely to the cloud. With a business-led approach, we go beyond the technical elements of lifting and shifting your workloads to focus on your end goals.
