With regards to your portfolio, this is the phase where you execute the roadmap you created for your applications. Each application is different and you may take a different approach based upon what is best for that specific application. You might re-host it to a lower-cost, higher-performance platform as an interim solution. You may replace it with a packaged application. You may re-architect it by building a new application but leveraging the business logic in the legacy applications. Or, you might just retire it all together. Each of these strategies is effective and should be a part of your plan.
