To meet customer demands and stay ahead of the competition, organizations must become adept at quickly delivering applications that meet customer needs while increasing efficiency and saving money. This three-part, on-demand webinar series shows you how to do just that, by modernizing the legacy applications you have today and building cloud-native applications for tomorrow using microservices, DevOps, and containers.
Watch these short webinars in a binge session or 30 minutes at a time:
- Part 1: Best practices for application modernization and migration
- Part 2: How to modernize legacy applications (technical demo)
- Part 3: From monolith to containers: Verizon’s journey to modernize legacy applications
Part 1: Best practices for application modernization and migration
IT organizations that rely on legacy platforms and traditional development processes struggle to innovate and keep up with competitive pressures and the high rate of change demanded by customers. Application and infrastructure modernization is needed and while many organizations are interested in making this change, they often find themselves asking, “Where and how do we begin?”
In this webinar Tobias Hartwig, Red Hat’s regional product manager for EMEA, will share best practices from successful IT modernization and migration projects to help you get started on your digital transformation journey. He’ll cover:
- Analyzing large-scale application portfolios for modernization opportunities
- Modernizing existing Java applications with containers, CI/CD, and DevOps principles
- Creating a business case
- Structuring transformation project teams
- A proven methodology for migrations
Part 2: How to modernize legacy applications
Modern application development and maintenance using microservices architecture, containerized infrastructure, and DevOps principles is much more effective than legacy methods. James Falkner, technical marketing manager at Red Hat, will explain how to modernize an existing legacy application to a modern platform like WildFly Swarm on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, using modern development processes with pipeline development.
Part 3: From monolith to containers: Verizon’s journey to modernize legacy applications
Enterprises generally have a significant portfolio of legacy applications running in production—applications developed 10, 15 years ago, or more. These applications stand in the critical path of revenue generation. It’s not easy to just rip them out and replace them all with applications built on modern architectures, such as microservices and containers.
Verizon, a leading telecommunications company, evaluated Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to modernize their application portfolio. Zohaib Khan, Red Hat’s practice lead for application modernization & migration, will cover Verizon’s journey to containerize one of their most challenging applications. He’ll also walk through a two-month-long proof-of-concept, including successes, misses, and a roadmap for application modernization.
