Migration of a Containerized Legacy Application to the Cloud

A legacy app is usually not designed to operate in a cloud services environment, not even as a container. You can’t refuse cloud adoption if you want to continue to be successful and open up new business areas. That’s why we took the plunge with our monolith, whose development began more than 2 decades ago. We also had to face an organizational challenge: From waterfall to agile software development using an enterprise framework.
• Which steps regarding to the implementation have we taken and why?
• Migrating a legacy app – is it worth it?
• What about the obstacles, we’ve faced?
