Modern application development

Modern app development demands speed and agility

In the digital business era, you need agility to seize new opportunities while efficiently maintaining legacy, on-premise systems. Development teams must deliver high-quality software more quickly than ever before. Drawn-out development and slow delivery aren't acceptable.

You need to integrate new development processes and architectures—such as microservices. And you must choose platforms that provide the flexibility to support these modern approaches. Carefully consider how to establish a flexible technology foundation for your application development strategy. Prioritize delivering applications with greater agility, flexibility, and speed while gaining maximum efficiency.

Run at DevOps speed

Trends like big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile require organizations to respond and adjust faster than ever. A good first step is to implement DevOps methodologies.

A DevOps strategy doesn’t stop at changing organizational culture, team structure, and implementing continuous integration and continuous delivery processes. DevOps maturity can only be achieved when organizations also choose DevOps-friendly tools, technologies, and platforms. These technologies are changing the way developers code and deploy apps, enabling high-quality applications to be delivered in days, or even minutes.

Our developer teams can create, test and deploy new applications or modified processes much faster than before. Since JBoss Enterprise Application Platform has been in production, deploying a new setup can be done in about 20 minutes. That’s half the time we needed before and an enormous productivity gain for the IT organization.

Meet goals with different architectural approaches

Microservices change the way apps are architected. According to IDC*, more than half (55%) of all organizations are planning to deploy a microservices-based architecture in the future. 28% plan to in the next 12 months. Building apps from modular microservices—created and owned by multiple teams—offers significant advantages to developers, including more granular software deployment.

Containers add flexibility and portability to provision and run virtualized apps and services in hybrid cloud environments. Container and app orchestration capabilities are also needed to scale. The key to success finding a flexible application platform to extend and improve current applications while supporting these new architectural approaches.

Deliver blazing fast, application user experiences at any scale

Application architects and developers realize the growing importance of compelling application experiences, which also means they must be blazing fast at any scale.

This is a challenging combination of design goals because:

  • Modern app experiences require more and faster data access
    Great user experience is ever more dependent on application performance and quality. Even a few seconds delay can mean the difference between success and failure for a new business initiative.
  • Data bottlenecks are becoming more common
    This is especially true as organizations need to process larger volumes, greater varieties, and a higher velocity of data to meet customer expectations.
Address these challenges


The Red Hat approach for speed, flexibility, and scale

Red Hat®JBoss®Middleware technologies offer organizations the flexibility they need to build high-quality, deploy-anywhere applications that meet demanding performance requirements. With Red Hat, you don’t need to worry about your legacy apps as you embrace new technologies and processes—JBoss Middleware offers you the best of both worlds.
