In our previous blog, Getting Started with Your Application Modernization Journey, we introduced the concept of app modernization, how critical it is in today’s digital landscape, and considerations for organizations that have not initiated app modernization with cloud.
In today’s blog, we will address the next phase of app modernization: expansion. Building or migrating a small number of applications to the cloud is a good start, but the real value is in moving the challenging and custom workload to the cloud, since these fill up data center capacity.

For organizations in the expansion phase, it is essential to define a migration roadmap. Below are a few points to consider:

- How many other applications (and what types) do you want to migrate?
