Review the application to fix the application
As organizations pursue agility, agility, and performance, evaluating the capabilities of existing data center products becomes critical as the first step to building synergy with the cloud. . Conduct a distance analysis to determine whether an application should be renewed, redesigned or simply improved is where the journey begins.
This application evaluation should include an evaluation of the application architecture and identify specific components as part of this phase. Functional authentication is another important step to keep track of if all functions are up to scale. Ultimately, these application components need to be mapped to the cloud-specific workflow in order to get resource scaling / scaling back efficiently and considered cloud-ready.
Consider application migration
Some data center applications take a little more work than fixing the application to fit into the cloud. This usually occurs in the case of applications inheriting due to their architecture and related variables. When fixing an application that does not modernize the application to the desired state, organizations must consider migrating the application to a more standardized ecosystem.
In this situation, having a robust application migration plan is essential to ensure business continuity and productivity among business customers. Along with re-archiving, redesign, and factoring applications, migration planning must also consider migrating applications from a traditional architecture to a microservice-based architecture.
Evaluate architectural factors and development methods such as containerization, cloud-based application development, and application integration with the cloud platform is crucial. Look at application deployment, CI-CD pipeline, intelligent monitoring, analytics, UX / UI, and more. There are also important aspects to consider in the application migration process.
Ecosystem integration is key
Incorporating processes and implementing new and legacy technologies into product plans are also the main imperatives of the organization to enable enterprise digital transformation initiatives. These consolidations are also essential to boost productivity by allowing for easy automation of repetitive tasks. Building the ability to integrate diverse systems and data sources has also become an important consideration to help customers speed up time to market, improve efficiency and reduce costs.
To build synergy between cloud products and data centers, organizations must also manage storage subsystems seamlessly to easily provision storage and resolve tasks that No need to switch between multiple management interfaces. For ISVs building data center products, this is an opportunity to create management interfaces to simplify the ecosystem. Developing custom plug-ins for virtualisers such as VMware, Microsoft, Linux, and Citrix allows the management of these subsystems from a single user interface, essentially becoming a cog in the wheel to drive push ecosystem integration.
IDC predicts that the global data range will stand at 175 zettabytes by 2025. To meet the world’s demand based on data, ISVs must develop their data center products to function well. to public cloud. Developing synergy with the public cloud therefore doesn’t seem to be an option anymore, but an imperative that will help ISV reach that required competitive differentiation.
