What is software migration?

Some people think of software migration as a process of system transfer from one technology to another. That is just half of the deal. Software migration is like rebuilding the system from scratch, implementing the same features and functionalities with modern developing technologies.

Software migration refers to software modernization. During this process, you can rebuild your old software with the new technologies, change the design, and add some new features.

Why migration?

There are times of your software when:

  • The technology on which the system is developed is no longer supported.
  • The system becomes too pricey and resource-consuming.
  • The software does not correspond to the renovated business processes
  • The legacy systems cannot be integrated with modern tools…

Constant technology evolutions usually lead to outdated systems, low performance, and higher costs of operation & maintenance. These problems may stop you from gaining an edge over your competitors. That’s why Luvina Software’s system migration services come into place to help you modernize your applications and improve business efficiency.

FAQ about SOFTWARE System Migration serviceS.

In our experience building and deploying new cloud environments for most of Luvina’s clients, one important part of the mission is to help our clients overcome challenges in shifting workloads and addressing key points that are not fully optimized. The challenges of cloud migration we most often see are:

  • Lack of a clear strategy determined by business objectives.
  • Cloud sprawl is caused by not having a clear understanding of the full scope of cloud environments.
  • Exceeding the planned budget.
  • Security weak points and failures of critical services.
  • Human error and a lack of required skills to operate the new infrastructure. 

The good news is Luvina has already researched and designed the solutions for those challenges. Let’s discuss how you can overcome the challenges in cloud migration and make your transition as smooth as possible.

Typically, there are five phases of an enterprise’s cloud transformation journey: Plan, Review, Optimize, Modernize, and Measure. Each phase individually contributes to increase agility and innovation and driving successful cloud adoption:

Phase 1: Plan

For many traditional enterprises that are planning to migrate to cloud environments, planning is their first phase of the cloud adoption journey. At this stage, enterprises need to first create a blueprint and establish a working foundation for executing a successful cloud strategy, then use a cloud pilot to evaluate success.

Phase 2: Review

After planning the cloud migration strategy and instrumenting everything, detecting and troubleshooting potential issues that could occur before and during the migration is essential. Companies also need to validate the migration by measuring app performance and soliciting customer feedback. The overarching goal of this phase is to accelerate migration and reduce risk.

Phase 3: Optimize

The cloud optimization phase is a process to analyze the allocation of cloud resources and right-size your environment to optimize costs. This process ensures you receive maximum value from the cloud migration process and minimize cloud spend.

Phase 4: Modernize

Many of today’s legacy businesses need to evolve quickly to meet changing business needs and remain competitive. Successful digital transformation depends on applications’ efficiency and productivity. Application modernization enables organizations to make smart, data-driven decisions and respond rapidly to market changes by utilizing modern technologies and processes.

Phase 5: Measure

The ultimate goal of cloud adoption is to accelerate innovation while delivering excellent customer experiences. This requires continuous optimization and real-time analytics of applications and infrastructure. Measuring business impact with KPIs is also a vital element to digital business flourishing.

It’s reasonable for businesses to concern about possible vulnerabilities during the migration process. A key part of the migration process involves understanding application dependencies, setting up a test environment, and performing stringent testing before the migration takes place. Luvina’s migration process will be in place to ensure that, in the event of any problems, the ability to “roll back” to a prior state is available.

And with cloud migration, one of the most advantages of professional cloud platforms like AWS or Azure is the inherent security protections that are always being updated and monitored to protect from evolving threats and attacks.
