Moving beyond lift & shift to modernize critical applications is a high-stakes, high-anxiety affair for IT leaders, especially when looking at refactoring and shifting them to cloud. Lack of accurate knowledge and insight into the inner working of the applications further exacerbates the challenge during the migration process. These are just a few of the complications organizations face during the cloud migration and application modernization process.
