The term application migration is the method or activity of relocating the organization's application from one source to a new destination or environment. Previous procedures to application migration is to transfer application workload from one data-center to another. With the increase in cost that involves physical workloads, assets, and utilities, business leaders have migrated to the cloud.
The need to cut application workload costs is one of the primary reasons to adapt to a new method of practice. Additional reasons are the opportunity to rethink, refactor, re-architect the process to achieve an optimal solution that is secure and scalable.
Power and efficiency emerge from shared online service platforms
Although cloud initially emerged simply as a scalable storage space, it was not long before companies like Microsoft and Amazon realized that the same principles of scale that made storage affordable could be applied to raw processing power. The numbers add up, and today cloud-based applications power many important software tools operating everything from Fortune 500 companies to startups.
Scalability cuts application workload - With hundreds of on-demand virtual machines waiting to crunch your data at all times, the workload can be dramatically reduced in cloud-based applications.
Offers single-point of deployment - With a cloud-based application, your IT services team only needs to deal with a single point of deployment and a unified monitoring system. Through IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, you have the flexibility in how you approach application structures without compromising on control.
Secure, stable and redundant application platform - The cloud offers globally diversified hosting, which gives your corporation unprecedented stability and high availability.
Global reach - With compute power scattered around the world, you can deploy application instances to areas where they are most in-demand, reaching your worldwide workforce with fast, efficient processing.
While delivering all these advantages, cloud-based applications also present new challenges to companies in terms of geographic distribution and compliance. Latency and network issues, as well as challenges in scale, can make application migration a tough call for most corporate IT departments.

We were early to recognize the full benefits of cloud-based applications and have developed a structured framework for moving applications to the cloud successfully – one that assesses critical factors and creates a sequential plan and develops a clear migration roadmap. We follow multiple application migrations. For instance, lift and shift, re-architecture or transform to fit the hybrid cloud environment, and so on. Our application migration strategy, and approach has following parameters:
- Cloud readiness
- Application release cycles
- Application platform and architecture
- Security, integration, and risk
Trianz orchestrates this transformation by leveraging our multidisciplinary teams' vast technical and business experience. Our holistic, big picture approach results in strategic initiatives, often over-delivering in terms of business results, while meeting the traditional project metrics of migrating applications to the cloud.
