Application Modernization

We continuously research emerging technologies and practices to help our clients leverage the latest and most reliable tools when modernizing their applications


Helping our clients solve their most complex problems

I need to quickly move my application to the cloud to cut costs and become more agile

I want to decompose my monolithic legacy application into microservices and re-engineer in cloud native tools

What it takes to successfully modernize your application on the cloud?

Right Solution Approach

Plan and implement the right solution approach that best meets your business objectives

  • When moving to the cloud for cost savings, use an accelerated Lift and Shift migration process that keeps the application ‘as is’ but rehosts on the cloud.
  • Use a Refactor approach when taking an initial step to the cloud by making some changes to the application design, but no wholesale changes to the application code.
  • To take full advantage of modern capabilities and re-imagine the user experience, completely re-engineer the application in the cloud.

Future Flexibility

Provide a solution that is flexible to future business growth and technology needs

  • Use a cloud agnostic solution that allows for easy portability between different cloud providers or operating in multi-cloud environments.
  • When rehosting your application on the cloud, use vanilla Kubernetes implementation and infrastructure setup to avoid dependency on cloud provider specific services.
  • Re-engineer your applications with cloud native and open source tools where possible.

Advanced Technology

Enable access to the latest technologies and practices.

  • Build solutions using advanced analytics technologies including Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Services and Machine Learning which are readily available with the leading cloud providers.
  • Leverage microservices and API based architectures.
  • Create enterprise pipelines and establish best practices for CI/CD.

Bitwise Lift and Shift Cloud Application Migration Services

When considering a migration to the cloud, challenges like vendor lock-in, deployment management, application design, local storage, security and compliance can be prohibitive in the decision to move forward. To address these challenges, Bitwise offers a specialized Lift and Shift Cloud Migration approach that accelerates the migration process.

Solution Approach


Cloud migration using Lift and Shift approach with help of cloud native services such as Docker and Kubernetes


Bundle the on-premise applications and dependencies as Docker images, an OS container


Setup HA k8s cluster on the preferred cloud environment which will be used for container orchestration


Deploy the Docker images to the k8s cluster


Setup GitHub/Jenkins pipeline for CI


Setup Spinnaker (OSS) to perform CD and Integrate Jenkins/Spinnaker pipelines


Advantages of Bitwise Lift and Shift Cloud Application Migration Services

  • Bitwise delivers a solution that avoids cloud vendor lock-in.
  • Our approach uses vanilla k8s implementation, so there is no need for your team to have knowledge or dependency on cloud provider specific services like Anthos for GCP or AWS SMS.
  • We setup and deploy k8s clusters from scratch using vanilla packages without usage of additional cloud offered services (AKS, EKS, GKE) which results in lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
  • Spinnaker is cloud native, so it can run on any cloud provided we have a k8s cluster available.
  • Docker is cloud native, so the baking of images will stay same for all cloud solutions.
  • Bitwise sets up CI/CD pipeline to aid in future blue/green deployments.

Bitwise Refactor Cloud Application Migration Services

We use a Refactor migration approach to enable your application to take advantage of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) products without major code changes.

Solution Approach


Creating deployment pipelines to enable mid-day releases using blue-green, red-black or canary deployments.


Creating audit compliant CI/CD pipelines to continuously deliver business capabilities to production.


Applying best practices for the full lifecycle of application design to installing and supporting in production.


Creating extensive documentation/recipes to  enable application transformation across your enterprise.


Modernizing or re-engineering applications from various legacy technology stacks to industry standard platforms such as spring / spring boot-based technology stack or Node.js based full stack applications.


Advantages of Bitwise Refactor Cloud Application Migration Services

  • Our CI/CD pipelines enable collection of test evidence to meet audit requirements if needed.
  • Our Refactor solution approach focuses on helping you realize the dream of CI/CD in a secure and compliant manner to meet your audit requirements.
  • Post-deployment DevOps support: We care not only about delivering business capabilities to production, but also supporting them as and when issues arise and making sure best practices for DevOps are followed in maintaining the applications.
  • Bitwise has extensive expertise with private cloud including the Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) platform with other clients.
  • Our team has extensive expertise with the spring and spring boot ecosystem. We can create custom autoconfigure components as required to accelerate application modernization as per your enterprise needs.
