Application modernization, the process of taking existing legacy applications and corresponding data and modernizing their infrastructure, architecture, and/or features, is an $11 billion market expected to grow to about $25 billion by 2025. Application modernization is typically focused on monolithic, on-premises applications and how those applications can be brought into modern, cloud-native architecture.

The benefits of application modernization include speed of new feature delivery, exposing the functionality of existing applications to be consumed via APIs, and re-platforming applications from on-premises to cloud for the purpose of cost reduction, achieving scale, and reaping the benefits of new development tools. A cloud native Integration platform is critical for successful application modernization.
