Cloud-Replatforming for Businesses
Transitioning your organization to the cloud requires you to decide what to do with the legacy applications. Migrating to the cloud is a must-do for every organization that wants to thrive in the current market. Key benefits of cloud platforming include scalability, strong computational capacity, flexibility, better server maintenance, and much more.
WHAT IS CLOUD REPLATFORMING?
Broadly speaking, there are three paths for cloud migration: rehosting, rearchitecting, and replatforming.
Re-hosting is “lifting-and-shifting” an application without making significant adjustments, mostly used for large scale cloud migration saving up to 30% of cost. However, some applications are too complex or not scalable for this.
Rearchitecting is discarding legacy applications and developing using PaaS based solutions from the ground up, but this is time-consuming and costly, and companies might not be comfortable switching to the new application.
Re-platforming is “lift-tinker-shift”. While the core architecture stays the same, a few optimizations are done to achieve some benefits like migrating to some platform for easier database handling.
Re-platforming is the mid path between re-hosting and rearchitecting. It is the method of transforming an application from a desktop to a cloud-native application at the source code stage. Businesses that need end-to-end cloud support should consider re-platforming their operations.

BENEFITS OF CLOUD REPLATFORMING
Incorporate new cloud functionalities without going through the cost and downtime of a complete overhaul.
A replatform migration is equivalent to transferring software to the cloud, but it does necessitate some application improvements to take advantage o
