From legacy to leading-edge: Navigating the Challenges of Cloud-Based App Development

In today’s dynamic app development ecosystem, industry professionals grapple with the need to scale mission-critical apps amidst escalating data volumes and customer acquisition goals. Transitioning from legacy systems to cloud-based platforms and multi-cloud configurations is no longer optional—it’s essential for handling billions of requests per minute while ensuring speed, geographic scalability, and 24/7 availability. Market disruptions and volatility have only intensified the urgency to deliver high-quality apps and services.

Moreover, established businesses across sectors must deal with heightened competition from digital-first players and platform-centric models, while also staying compliant with emerging industry-specific regulatory guidelines. To remain competitive, many are streamlining their technology infrastructures and operational complexities, focusing on improving apps and services as well as retaining and growing their customer base.

  • What are the primary challenges in cloud-based app development and maintenance across industries, including technological obstacles and adapting to market innovations?
  • How can organisations ensure high availability for critical applications even as they scale to meet customer demands 
  • What strategies can organizations adopt to retain and attract customers during their transition to the cloud, and how can they prepare for upcoming industry-specific regulatory directives?
