Software Development University: App Modernization and transformation
Software architects, CTOs and business leaders today see their legacy systems failing to meet the connectivity and integration demands of mobile, cloud and other Web applications -- just look at the numbers:
About a third of businesses run major applications more than 10 years old, and a fifth have at least one major application that's largely gone unchanged for 15 years or more, according to a 2013 CIMI Corp. survey. Half of the applications reported in the survey were based on obsolete monolithic architectures or used Web services only as a front end to a large application. It's clear that application modernization is necessary in order to meet the demands of today's connected, complex IT landscape.
In this virtual classroom from SearchSOA.com, get a crash course in application modernization and transformation. Topics covered in this "university" will include:
- Connecting application modernization to business transformation. With both enterprise applications and supporting architectures falling short, they’re turning to holistic business transformation and services-based approaches to accomplish modernization
- Business transformation decisions, from first steps to modular deployment
- How to focus application modernization efforts on services and how to align application services with functional process designs.
