Monoliths to microservices: Migrating legacy apps

Watch recording from April 30, 2019


Enterprises are transitioning from on-premise, monolithic applications to highly dynamic, polyglot environments using microservices and cloud computing. During this transition, organizations are often left wondering what to do with existing investments in legacy platforms and application development frameworks that are running the business of today but are quickly becoming obsolete in the face of the ongoing digital revolution.

In this session, we'll explore how organizations can meet the challenges of modern business using existing applications while at the same time driving new innovation using modern application development technologies like microservices, containers, and hybrid cloud. These techniques can help deliver market innovation faster and with more reliability while minimizing the risk of introducing new technology too quickly. We'll cover techniques for lift-and-shift, re-factoring and re-platforming applications, and how Red Hat can help you through your own digital transformation journey.
