Application Modernization

Solutions for modernizing legacy applications to today’s cloud architectures.  Organizations are transforming monolithic legacy applications to the latest infrastructures, databases and services to achieve the most cost-effective outcomes that are aligned with business objectives. Quest application modernization solutions provide the tools needed to model, migrate, manage, monitor, govern and protect the data and application ecosystem – before, during and after this transformation.

Application Modernization
As enterprises embark on their digital transformation journey, migrating to the cloud has become the norm, but not all applications can make the move without significant redesign and rearchitecting. Undertaking application modernization is a multi-step process that requires deliberate planning, modeling and an in-depth understanding of data assets across the enterprise. Without the right set of tools and processes, legacy application modernization could be time-consuming, expensive and risky.

Quest’s Application Modernization solutions provide high visibility and control across the enterprise in order to balance cost with application performance, data governance and security. They leverage the power of the Quest Data Empowerment portfolio to support today’s cloud infrastructure for maximum flexibility.
