3 determining factors for legacy app cloud modernization

Securing functionality while meeting the standards of the modern cloud can be a key part of legacy system modernization success. To transition to a more broadly accessible enterprise, organizations should plan out a solution that fits their cost needs and will result in a pure form of terminal emulation that integrates easily with standard web browsers. Before they decide to do this, though, there are several factors to keep in mind.

For optimal terminal emulation, the solution may have to be scaled to the current resources a company has, as well as the type of hosting it will need for application access. These following three concerns could possibly dictate how a business proceeds with modernization:

  • Consistent data policies: An article for Banking Exchange recently stated the importance not just of enterprise cybersecurity but maintaining the same standards for transmission and storage. The piece argues against applying "bandages" for legacy systems when business continuity is a serious concern.
  • Effort for access: If the goal of modernization is better access on all platforms, the client company is best suited by an option that won't require a browser systems overhaul. The number of devices that already use a certain browser and amount of use legacy apps will see can affect the best choice.
  • Onboarding support: Finding and implementing the right solution is just the beginning. Organizations of all sizes should give themselves time to perfect their applications. This can include customizing it to keyboard use preferences as well as company identifiers.
