Technology leaders face significant challenges, managing constantly-growing expectations from internal and external customers with limited resources available. At the same time, technology leaders must change the traditional perception of IT as a cost center and instead become an embedded, strategic C-Suite partner that drives organizational goals.
Cloud app modernization is one way that technology leaders can solve these issues; improving delivery and contributing, in a measurable, meaningful way, to business strategies.
What is Cloud App Modernization?
94% of businesses currently use cloud services. But a cloud journey doesn’t end when a migration is over. To maximize long-term benefits of cloud adoption, an organization must continually optimize, upgrade, and improve applications, processes, and infrastructure.
This is referred to as cloud application modernization.
When processes and data are migrated to the cloud, there is generally a strategy in place to make sure they operate efficiently. But over time, without oversight and optimization, wasteful spending increases. In fact, according to a recent study, 32% of all cloud spend is wasted.
3 Key Challenges Solved by Cloud App Modernization
Cloud app modernization improves process efficiency and employee productivity, so that resources can be channeled away from resource-intensive maintenance tasks, and toward higher-level strategic objectives.

Legacy applications pose a higher risk to data security than those that are modernized, monitored, and updated. Cloud app modernization helps reduce risk and ensure that vulnerabilities are resolved, and that data is secured with the appropriate security tools and solutions.
One of the main challenges facing IT leaders is transforming the perception of the technology team – from a cost center to a long-term, strategic partner of the C-Suite. Cloud app modernization can help with this by incorporating automation, streamlining, and data analytics into cloud processes. Automation and streamlining improve efficiency and allow resources to be channeled to higher level objectives. At the same time, data analytics support benchmarking and tracking KPIs and tying technology to long-term organizational strategies.
