application modernisation cloud

Application modernization with Azure

Many organisations use a patchwork of outdated and therefore limiting software to run their core business processes – a risky and costly practice that puts them at a competitive disadvantage. We can help you avoid that trap and any potential security issues.

To maximise your growth potential, we will modernise your digital legacy applications. We will analyse your digital landscape, conduct technical assessments, and then refactor your old system or redesign your new systems and software architectures. 

As a Microsoft Gold Partner (Cloud Platform), Zühlke helps you to choose the best approach aligned with your organisation’s growth requirements. From consulting to migration to management, we cover all aspects of your journey into the cloud, ensure a smooth transition and, of course, help you reduce costs and leverage the opportunities presented by the cloud.

Microsoft Gold Partner


To help you build the best cloud solution, we combine our expertise in cloud projects with recommended guidelines such as Microsoft's Cloud Adoption Framework and tailor it to your needs. From this, we then derive a strategy to get you ready for the cloud and prepare the migration of your application to Azure.



The Azure cloud offers a comprehensive list of platform services that can significantly accelerate a migration and make operations more cost-efficient.

We assess your workload to be migrated, check the possible uses of PaaS and serverless architectures for you, and put together a suitable migration plan. To this end, we build on what you have, foster reuse, and integrate your existing and future products.



We transform your application into a scalable and production-ready cloud application and store your data where it best serves its purpose. We help you evolve towards agile DevOps processes by integrating existing capabilities and new tools into reliable deployment pipelines.

Security and data protection are our top priorities throughout the whole process and are taken into account during each step of the migration.



A successful migration to the cloud opens up new possibilities, such as the ability to process and analyse data with the help of modern AI and data services. We help you further leverage such opportunities and ensure that the solution is efficiently operated in the cloud.
