As companies attempt to implement Digital Transformation, they need to modernize their in-house software systems and build new ones. This modernization process often includes transitioning the software to the public cloud, using modern technologies, implementing a SaaS system, changing the system’s architecture (Microservices anyone?), and delivering a new user experience (UX) to customers. However, we rarely get the opportunity to rebuild our systems from scratch. The customers are still there, the business is still running, and stakeholders still want everything to operate at the same operational level as it was until now.
So how can we do it? Can we have our cake and eat it too? There is no silver bullet, and trade-offs comprise our every choice. The trick is knowing which questions to ask and how to choose our strategy.
Join us in this session as we review the technical methods we have to modernize our software systems. We’ll review the questions we should ask ourselves and the strategies that we can employ. Starting from lift & shift through containerization to cloud-native apps – we’ll take you on a journey that’s relevant for any modern software’s stakeholder.
