Migration to PaaS
Migration to PaaS offers companies access to all of the benefits of the Cloud
It allows businesses to retain control over how their software applications are designed to meet their unique requirements and needs.
Smooth full transition
The most important feature in PaaS adoption is the transition of the entire life cycle management of applications to the Cloud.
It also allows you to embrace components of cloud computing, which you can develop on top of.
This model lets you customize apps to your specific business needs while enjoying benefits like scalability, high availability and more.
End user experience monitoring
There’s one responsibility you’ll have, however, regardless of your migration model, and that is end user experience monitoring.
Ways to migrate to PaaS
There are two approaches to migrate existing enterprise applications to PaaS:
Direct deployment to PaaS with little changes (either the entire application or part of it)
Deployment on PaaS with some level of architectural and/or design transformation
Short term vs Long term
PaaS provides flexibility, agility and cost optimization of applications in the long term.
However, in the short term, complexities in migrating the applications to PaaS may slow down PaaS migration. Because to realize the full potential of PaaS, apps’ architectures must be adapted to accommodate the desired cloud model.
