    • Study the as-is architecture and business requirements of legacy applications in order to assess legacy applications for cloud readiness by examining characteristics, such as loose versus tight coupling, statefulness versus statelessness, dependencies on enterprise service buses or message-oriented middleware, hardcoded API calls, licensing, network latency, and processor architecture.

    • Design an intermediate architecture for cloud-suitable legacy applications to allow migration to the cloud prior to extensive modernization efforts. • Collaborate with subject matter experts in areas such as wide area networks, directory services, etc. to solve integration challenges as required. • Provide consulting services and recommendations on the modernization of legacy systems
