Unlock your cloud potential with Azure app innovation

Application innovation drives business outcomes, enabling you to deliver differentiated and flexible customer experiences, improve teamwork and well-being, and adapt and scale to new business models and ways of working.


Transform services for your users

At Advania, our leading Microsoft expertise and cloud experience has shaped our app innovation services. Our experts can help you deliver modern apps that provide best-in-class digital experiences for your organisation and its users.


Remove barriers holding up your app innovation

By innovating your apps with Azure, you can revolutionise how you deliver services to your users. You can remove barriers that previously existed, like legacy architecture and bulky monolithic applications. With digital and app innovation, you can create modern, cloud-native apps, modernise your app and data experiences, migrate your web apps and increase developer velocity within modern DevSecOps processes.

However, it can be difficult to know where to start. Do you have concerns about costs, downtime, security, and integration? Or are you unclear on the impact of moving established apps into a modern microservices environment? Let us guide you with our methodical approach to Azure app innovation.

Evolve with a cloud-first approach

Move legacy apps to the cloud and fully leverage the benefits of modern app architectures. These include low-code/no-code software advancement, more efficient development cycles, automation, DevSecOps and increased reliability.

How we can help your app modernisation

To begin your app modernisation, we will assess your digital estate against established modernisation frameworks to determine the optimal migration and modernisation path for your apps. We will leverage both infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) as determined by your business drivers, as well as quantitative and qualitative analysis, transforming at a pace that supports your cloud strategy.


Using the five Rs of rationalisation approach, we’ll work with you to re-host, re-platform, re-architect, rebuild or replace your infrastructure requirements and take advantage of PaaS to increase the speed of innovation while reducing management complexity.

Full platform rebuild

To empower employees and improve customer experience, we’ll help you rebuild and modernise your apps by taking advantage of modern dedicated or serverless compute services such as Azure app services, containerisation, functions, and microservices architectures.

Our Azure app modernisation services

Advania’s app innovation services are designed to make the modernisation process as simple as possible. Our experts will work with you to assess your readiness for change and plan how to make that transformation a success.

Discovery and assessment

We’ll explore your existing app touchpoints, licensing, data, and security arrangements. We’ll then map out your readiness to move apps to Azure, highlighting priority areas. We’ll also set out PaaS costs, licence mobility options, project cost estimates and run costs for Azure and Microsoft 365 adoption.

Design and delivery

We’ll provide high-level design documentation to engage and inform stakeholders, setting out recommendations and steps for delivery. Our delivery services will then ensure your Azure app modernisation is realised and focused on agreed business outcomes. Our developers can help transform your apps to deliver consistent quality and performance at scale with modern management and governance, built securely and cost optimised


Modernising your apps may take you beyond Azure. Where required, we’ll help you understand how Microsoft 365 solutions such as SharePoint and Power Platform can bring further innovation and value to your services.

Support and optimisation

After we’ve delivered your app modernisation in Azure, we can provide you a managed service that ensures you get continuing value. We can support you with a broad range of Azure services including app monitoring, optimising and governance.

Tailoring your Azure app innovation

Every organisation is unique, providing a wide variety of services that require multiple solutions. This means that your Azure services need to be just as unique. Whatever your requirements, we can support you to modernise all aspects of your apps and platforms, including:

Web application front-end:

Azure App Service (supporting .NET, Java, PHP and more).

Web API:

Azure Functions or API hosted as an App Service.

Middle-tier layers:
