“Update – Instead of rebuilding the old .NET application” – And we are saying this for obvious reasons.
If you haven’t heard of it, Microsoft will not provide updates on .NET Framework 4.8 or .NET Core 3.1 and instead developed a unified code base called .NET 5. It marks the transition of Microsoft from. NET’s older, proprietary, Windows-only framework to the most modern, open-source, cross-platform .NET Framework. This is good news.
This means that there will be only one .NET from now on, and you will be able to use it to target operating systems like Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, tvOS, watchOS, WebAssncil, and more.
This means that it is time to improve your infrastructure, but there is no need to rebuild. In fact, rebuilding your .net development services is not only risky, but also unnecessary and expensive.
And we at Integrative Systems can help you. Whether we do it for you (without touching your IP address) or in collaboration with your in-house development team, Integrative Systems can add maximum value to your business within your budget and time frame.
Update your Existing .Net Application using Azure Cloud
When you decide to update and move your .Net development services to the cloud, you do not need to re-engineer your application completely. But it’s important to consider the needs of your business and act accordingly. You must specify:
- Applications that require re-engineering.
- Applications that only need a partial update.
- Applications that you can “upload and move” directly to the cloud.
Cloud Path for Existing .NET Applications
Organizations generally choose to move to the cloud to enjoy the speed and agility of their existing setup. You can set up thousands of servers (VM) on the cloud in minutes compared to an on-premises server that typically takes weeks to set up.
There is no one-size-fits-all policy for migrating .net development services to the cloud. The right migration strategy for you will depend on the needs and priorities of your organization and the type of application you are migrating.
Each migration method has different advantages and reasons for using it. You can choose a method when migrating the .net development application to the cloud.
Three ways to update Dot Net Applications
In this migration mode, migrate or relocate your existing on-premises applications as infrastructure (IaaS). Your .net development applications will have the same configuration as before, but you are now deploying them to a virtual space in the cloud. This simple type of .net development services migration is commonly known as ‘lift and shift’ in industry.
You don’t need significant code re-engineering or modification at this level and can reap the additional benefits of running your application in the cloud with modern technologies such as additional cloud-managed services. Improve the speed of your .net development service offerings by optimizing your Enterprise Development Process (DevOps). You can achieve this functionality by using technology like Windows Containers based on Docker Engine. Eliminates friction caused by application dependencies when deploying containers in multiple stages. In this model, you can deploy containers on IaaS or PaaS using additional cloud-managed services related to the database, cache-a-service, monitoring, and continuous integration / continuous deployment (CI / CD) pipeline.
The third level is the best part about cloud, but it is optional for many applications and is not the main focus of this guide.
This migration approach is generally business-driven and aims to modernize your mission-critical applications. At this stage, you use the PaaS service to move your application to the PaaS computing platform. You’re implementing cloud-native applications and microservices architecture for long-term agile application development, scaling new boundaries. This type of update usually requires a unique design of the cloud. New code often needs to be rewritten, especially when moving to cloud-native applications and microservice-based models. This approach can help you reap the difficult benefits to achieve in a seamless and on-premises environment.
Here’s why you May be Reluctant to Pull the Trigger
- You need modern technology for a better customer experience, but there are many options, and they all are risky, and you don’t even know where to start.
- You have no time or are tight on budget to repair your mission-critical system.
- You do not know which technology to switch, or which technology will work with ASP.NET.
- You already have a development team, but they’re only working on ASP.NET, and you don’t want the bandwidth for hiring more full-time developers right now.
- You can’t afford to bind your best and brightest developers for more time while working on this project.
- You can hire an agency, but you are concerned about the security of your data.
The Approach from Integrative Systems
Our dedicated .NET software development experts work with you – no matter where you are in the process. To help you update your legacy .Net development services, so you don’t lose many years of investment.
Also, we will work as an integrated team for you to renew your old .NET application or create a new application for you, or we will work as your extended team to speed up the process.
Why Modernize .NET?
There are several reasons why you should update your mission-critical .net development applications. See here:
Tested and reliable
Net Core has a proven history of balancing innovation and reliability in the industry and around the world. It is a reliable framework for cross-platform applications and is evolving into new technologies over time.
.NET Scalability is easily enabled by a comprehensive and powerful class library that accelerates development by providing proven, usable capabilities for data access, networking, coding, workflow, and more.
Enables easy, secure interoperability of managed code on the .NET Core platform. It’s built from the ground up, with Dependency Injection (DI) – it’s included as a first-class native (a technology that helps you track code-driven features). Future integration, maintenance, and testing capability.
Built for change
Just as old technology can be slowly removed, so can your older system. With Microsoft phasing out the .NET legacy for .NET 5, you need to prepare for the future without having to spend a lot of time investing.
Why Choose Integrative Systems?
We work with organizations worldwide to create architectures that can meet your needs, whether those needs are for highly scalable web services or independently scalable microservices. Using frameworks like WebAPI, industry standards for REST / RESTful APIs, and powerful command-line applications, our .net development services provides, enables you to meet complex business challenges and eliminate complications.
Instead of taking a one-sided approach to rebuilding your app from scratch, we take a structured approach to splitting your app into portable components over time. This means that instead of waiting years to upgrade, you will see immediate results, which will result in a faster ROI.
