Legacy .NET Application Modernization with Microsoft Azure

Datavail White Paper

In the face of an ever-shifting enterprise IT landscape, businesses need to preserve their competitive edge

Releasing new products and services, satisfying customers, and boosting revenues are all much easier when your employees have access to cutting-edge digital technologies.

Unfortunately, companies are often held back by their dependence on legacy applications and systems. Many organizations are even spending a majority of their IT budget on these legacy technologies. On average, 78 percent of a bank’s IT spending goes to legacy applications, while the figure is 58 percent for retailers and 79 percent for the U.S. government.

The pain points of legacy applications have led many businesses to try modernizing these technologies. Key drivers of app modernization projects include cost savings, faster innovation speeds, better performance, greater scalability and distributed processing, freedom from restrictive software licenses, and providing the customer, or end user, a better overall experience.

In particular, legacy applications created with Microsoft’s .NET Framework can greatly benefit from modernization. First released 20 years ago in 2002, the .NET Framework has now largely been replaced by .NET Core, the open-source and modular successor. Beyond moving to .NET Core, businesses can also take advantage of cloud elasticity and scalability by migrating these on-premises applications to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
