Organizations are striving to take advantage of the latest cloud technologies. However, outdated infrastructures, legacy software applications, and a shortage of application skills hinder their modernization efforts.

2nd Watch Cloud Modernization Services

Our modernization experts work side-by-side with you throughout your digital transformation to ensure your applications and data are running the way your business requires – fast and effectively.

We help you move data to and between public, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments, create or update your application portfolio strategy and management, accelerate your time to market, break down monoliths into microservices, and build application applications.

The possibilities are endless.


Your first step to cloud modernization begins here:


Confidently move your IT operations and workloads from on-premises or co-location facilities to the cloud quickly while maintaining business continuity.


Take inventory of your business applications and construct an application portfolio that improves operational efficiency, reduces complexity, and lowers your reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).


Embrace and implement DevOps practices for increased speed to market, engineering efficiency, and improved product quality.


Go beyond the “lift and shift” by modernizing and optimizing your legacy applications to realize the full value of migrating to the cloud.


Prepare your organization for an agile data-driven future of improved productivity, reduced TCO, and enhanced data analytics capabilities.
