With so many business processes moving to the cloud, more and different types of applications are needed. Vendors offer cloud application development services to assist companies and organizations in developing robust cloud technologies, either by developing brand-new applications or by moving them from legacy systems. As a result, cloud application development services can include services related to consulting, development, migration, integration or testing. Cloud application development service vendors may help determine a choice of cloud platform, for example, private, public or hybrid, or help a client figure out how to move functionality from outdated legacy systems to the cloud.
