What is modern application development?
Modern app development is the rapid creation, maintenance, and management of applications that run across complex hybrid cloud environments without modification. This approach lets organizations get the most benefit from innovative technologies like containers and microservices, as well as from game-changing practices like agile, DevOps, and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD).
5 places to start making up-to-date apps
Your apps are hard to maintain. And they lack portability. Move them to containers so your IT staff can keep things running, but still have time to innovate.
Technology and infrastructure requests can really slow things down. Add a lightweight app platform with the right tools to make room for fast, flexible, new approaches like microservices, mobile, and hybrid cloud.
Complex environments require process and automation improvements. Build apps around repeatable processes to ensure app logic is auditable and predictable.
Private cloud lets Amadeus modernize travel apps
Containment was important because we have many applications developed in older technologies that we will not change for at least 10 years. We also wanted to integrate existing middleware into Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform so that system administrators retain a uniform view of operations, the platform, and availability.

Are your new apps already old?
If you're developing new apps using legacy platforms and processes, they could be out of date before they debut. And if you're creating what your customers want on separate systems, applications can't share resources across environments. Maintaining a mix of old and new app stacks is inefficient and time-consuming. It keeps your staff from growing skills and planning for your future.
