Application Refactoring to Cloud

Application Refactoring to Cloud

A microservices architecture is a set of small services that exist in an ecosystem, operating autonomously to accomplish certain responsibilities. Each of these services is unique due to the following:
  • Formulated throughout business boundaries
  • Separately portable
  • Can stand on an individual basis and has the least amount of pairing with any other service
  • Remarkably manageable and demonstrable
CCT programs microservices for application refactoring to cloud in a wide range of languages, such as Java and Python. By default, these are decentralized in nature.

Why Opt for Microservices?

Before you move from monolithic applications to microservices, consider the in-depth overview of microservices, its features, and why there is a need to adopt them. Here is why you should take advantage of application refactoring to cloud.

Transforming for Innovation and Sustainability securing future COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE


Microservices refer to an ecosystem of smaller and autonomous services. This way, we can help you to scale one or more services without affecting other services. Additionally, it is easy to scale a team and assists with rapid development.


With small functions, it is convenient to debug or test your applications on varied levels. Moreover, our team reviews errors and can make debugging cost a lesser amount of resources. Therefore, increase the ability to create error-free deliverables.


Microservices make it easy to incorporate changes in a function without affecting other organization’s services. Besides, monolithic applications have tight coupling, which means any change can disrupt other functionalities.


You can achieve robust monitoring with the microservices architecture. Meanwhile, as each service is developed in multiple APIs, platforms, and languages. Several teams are working on a single system, which makes it easy to monitor the progress, testing, and debugging.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Microservice is the breaking up of traditionally tightly coupled application components into small specialized services that communicate through HTTPS REST and HTTPS API interfaces.
Since Microservices are small specialized services, they can be quickly and efficiently rearranged to accommodate future capabilities unknown at the present time.
Microservices are independent and modular which allows for significant flexibility in communications patterns and often prevent cascading failure.
DevOps is the combination of development and operations into a single function of software development and infrastructure management. The main priority of DevOps is the reduction of barriers to speed of delivery.
DevSecOps empowers everyone in the development process using a security focused tool set to address timely security decisions at speed and scale of each development stage. The main priority of DevSecOps is risk reduction through DevOps security accountability and governance.
Security automation in DevSecOps increases speed of code releases while reducing the risk using static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), and code dependency checking.
High business value is realized from quick and efficient response to market opportunities and challenges, optimization for innovation, and reduction of technical debt all lead to superior competitive advantage.

How Does CCT Work with Microservices?

CCT helps your application refactor to cloud with the following workflow.

Break Down Services

CCT’s cloud engineers will dismantle the system at first. They will offer valuable operational insights to your team, allowing you to separate less complex services in the beginning.

We refactor services that are usually coupled from the monolithic architecture and don’t modify the application’s front end. The delivery team optimizes the delivery process and creates the relevant infrastructure to use self-served API for separately deployable services.

Restrict the Monolith Interdependence

Once we decouple the microservices, we make sure that dependency on the remaining monolith is minimized. A major benefit of a microservices architecture is the self-sufficient and fast release cycle, which cannot be achieved in the monoliths. Remember, the actual motivation for leaving the monolith architecture is the slow speed of changes performed and large maintenance costs. With CCT’s assistance, you can change your development realities.

Disconnect the Capabilities

There is a limit to decoupling. At a certain point, there are conditions due to which additional decoupling is not viable anymore. This happens when the monolithic application is buggy and lacks proper definition. For these scenarios, you need to identify the system’s viscous capabilities, rebuild them with a well-planned domain, and then split them into individual services.

Split the Vertical Capabilities

A monolithic application consists of different strongly coupled layers that are needed to be discharged at the same time and have a hardcore dependency. We split the capabilities to discharge them separately from the monolithic application. This is done to separate capabilities vertically, disjoining the root capabilities and take all the front-end applications to the new APIs. The main concern in disjoining the services is having manifold applications, which depend on centrally shared data. Therefore, it is needed that the team utilizes strategies for data migration that meets their system.

Disconnect the Major Business Functions

One of the key processes in monolithic applications is to release a capability, involving extracting front-end components, data, logic and then redirect it to the next service. This is a large amount of work that your team will have to execute.
This is why the team is required to continuously determine the decoupling cost and the benefits emerging from the transition. If the goal is to speed the modifications in the current capabilities sealed in the monolithic application, CCT’s team can help separate code areas that have been evolving at a rapid rate.

Detach Capability Over Code

There are two methods for extracting a capability from the current architecture – by rewriting it or extracting it. Usually, the extraction is done by reusing the code. Often, development teams choose costly resources, both labor and cost, for code reuse. However, they neglect the significance of rewriting.
We prioritize rewording the capability as a new code rather than using the old code. Rewriting assists businesses in revising the business capabilities and adjusts them as per the prevailing needs.

Move to Micro with Application Refactoring to Cloud

We help your team identify the domain perimeters and train them to practice domain-oriented strategies. Maintaining consistency is key to determining the domain perimeters. Too big or too small of a microservice can disrupt a system, which can lead to unsuitable functioning.
We recommend creating boundaries by assessing how small microservices can align with your business. It is advised to split the monolithic applications into smaller services to a considerable extent, so your team can manage, operate, and handle them smoothly.
