[EDIT] Cloud Readiness
In order to migrate a modern IT system to the cloud, the system has to meet several key prerequisites:
• system applications have been organized as a collection of services with a central data model
• communication between system components has been conceived and constructed in the sense of scaling and operating at high performances
• security has been systematically integrated into the applications and consistently implemented through platform components.
Understanding the importance of service-oriented architecture as well as giving priority to these solutions represent a step into the future. The first step in this direction is choosing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
