The legacy architecture of some organizations’ data systems may need a serious upgrade to stay competitive. For example, the old architecture of a business may provide a clumsy fit when accessing cloud services and take longer to transfer data and perform tasks within the cloud. This results in higher cloud costs. Additionally, upgrading to a modern data architecture offers numerous benefits, ranging from faster overall system performance to improved customer experiences.
Upgrading the data architecture often includes upgrading or replacing software (possibly through the use of the cloud) and sometimes the hardware.
