In the video below, Skytap CTO and VP of Engineering, Brad Schick, explains the disconnect between newly developed software, particularly that which was designed to run in the cloud, and older, “traditional” applications that were not orchestrated with the cloud or automation in mind. While there may always be differences in the speeds at which these two types of software are developed, there are practices—and great benefits—around how newer apps are built and deployed that can absolutely be applied to older, legacy applications.
Schick describes a three-stage process for successful application modernization that covers:
- Removing bottlenecks
- Streamlining processes
- Modernizing architectures
The video also tells the story of a large organization with a monolithic application they were struggling to innovate due to an all-too-common constraint around QA environment availability—and how this organization was able to benefit by moving this app, with minimal effort, into Skytap.
We hope you enjoy this video, and we invite you to learn more about how Skytap is helping enterprises at every stage of their application modernization initiatives.
