How to start: modernize or build new?

In many cases, creating new applications is not necessary. Modernizing existing applications allows your business to leverage existing investments while benefiting from the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.

However, for some organizations, starting from scratch is easier than enhancing existing applications. Building net-new applications helps you deliver the innovation that users demand without being tethered to previous iterations or decisions. Where should you start?
