Application Modernisation

Work with the experts to unlock business opportunities

Make your assets cloud-ready

When planning a move to the cloud, don’t leave your applications behind. Our ethos is simple: we make legacy applications cloud-ready to increase their performance, scalability, and security.

Customer experience is more important now than ever. It determines whether your company takes flight or crashes. Let Cloud Direct help you engage your customers, transform your products, optimise your operations, and enable your employees.


Got a legacy application you need to make cloud-ready? No sweat.

There are many options for your application within Azure, whether you are migrating your application for the first time or looking to innovate further, are you looking to use containers or App services? Microservices? What about Azure DevOps and security?

Our team has the flexibility, agility, and scale to work in the way that suits you. Whether you have an in-house development team that needs cloud infrastructure experts, or you want to make use of our cloud-native app development team. We’ve got you covered.

How do we modernise your applications?

There are several ways to bring legacy applications into Azure. Our team of software development engineers are accomplished in each and understand the right time to apply them.


Lift an application into Azure, making no changes


Modify an application to enhance performance


Rewrite code to optimise an application to run in Azure


Rebuild an application from scratch to be cloud-native


Retire an application in favour of a new, cloud-native alternative
