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).
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If you're developing new apps using legacy platforms and processes, they could be out of date before they debut.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.

Everything must happen faster
Your customers aren't willing to wait, and your competitors certainly won’t. Since you can't meet new demands with old approaches, something has to change.

5 places to start making up-to-date apps
Java™ and J2EE™ apps are hard to maintain, and 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.
You need accurate, real-time connections to employees in the field. A secure Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) can make sure apps are available anywhere.

Even a small change can speed up your flow. But look for your biggest challenges, because those improvements will have the greatest impact.
Doing things differently
Prepare for your new development path
The apps you need can't be bought—and you can't build them in the same old ways. But you do have choices about how you move forward. What's your next step?
