Companies are beginning to shift to mobile, social and the cloud, and need ways to handle big data, as well. They need ways to transform their legacy apps, yet keep vital business functions intact. Sometimes this means transforming the apps themselves or transforming the ways they are maintained. More often than not, however, it means employing application modernization services to change the way applications are developed.
This is where cloud technologies such as platform as a service (PaaS) and containers can help. PaaS technology and containers are application modernization services that simplify the modernization process by allowing legacy apps to be easily and efficiently moved, updated, developed and tested without the loss of vital functions or data.
