How to Migrate Applications Off a Mainframe

Ah, the mainframe. Peel back many transactional business applications at any enterprise and you’ll find a mainframe application under there. It’s often where the crown jewels of the business’ data and core transactions are processed. The tooling for these applications is dated and new code is infrequent, but moving off is seen as risky. No one. Wants. To. Touch. Mainframes.

But mainframe applications don’t have to be the electric third rail. Modernizing, even pieces of those mainframe workloads into modern frameworks on modern platforms, has huge payoffs. Developers can gain all the productivity benefits of modern tooling. Not to mention the scaling, security, and cost benefits.

So, how do you get started modernizing applications off a mainframe? Join Rohit Kelapure, Consulting Practice Lead at Pivotal, as he shares lessons from projects with enterprises to move workloads off of mainframes. You’ll learn:

● How to decide what to modernize first by looking at business requirements AND the existing codebase
● How to take a test-driven approach to minimize risks in decomposing the mainframe application
● What to use as a replacement or evolution of mainframe schedulers
● How to include COBOL and other mainframe developers in the process to retain institutional knowledge and defuse project detractors
● How to replatform mainframe applications to the cloud leveraging a spectrum of techniques

We look forward to you joining us.

  • App Modernization with .NET Core: How Travelers Insurance is Going Cloud-Native Jan 23 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Viraj Naik, Senior Solutions Architect at Travelers Insurance Rohit Kelapure, Principal Solution Architect at Pivotal
    At Travelers Insurance, a decade old rating engine was still on the mainframe, making it difficult to scale, expensive to run, and reliant on a shrinking pool of skilled engineers. Rating engines are fundamental to the insurance quoting process, and at the very heart of the business. It was time to modernize and take advantage of the scalability, stability, automation and fast iteration cycles made possible by cloud-native architecture.

    In this webinar, Viraj Naik of Travelers Insurance and Rohit Kelapure of Pivotal will take us on their journey from mainframe to microservices. Viraj and Rohit will describe how they built a distributed, event-driven rating engine with .NET Core on Pivotal Platform using Steeltoe, running on Linux stem cells. The new rating engine exceeded SLAs and reduced time to production to under 60 minutes.

    You’ll learn the keys to a successful mainframe rewrite-based modernization, including:

    ● A pragmatic, domain-driven approach and phased delivery, including implementing a strangler pattern and anti-corruption layers.
    ● How to port business objects and business rules from mainframe to .NET.
    ● New innovations developed and delivered during the migration process.

Azure Spring Cloud is a managed environment built on top of Azure Kubernetes Service with preconfigured, opinionated, ready-to-deploy infrastructure services, and runtime for Spring-based applications.

    Sound too good to be true? It isn’t! Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) as he walks you through an overview of Azure Spring Cloud and demos how easy it is to push and run Spring Boot microservices into production with Microsoft and Pivotal managing the infrastructure for you.
  • Code to Cloud: Three Trends for Faster, Safer Continuous Delivery Recorded: Oct 31 2019 60 mins
    Olga Kundzich, Tony Vetter, Patricia Johnson, Pivotal
    You’re faced with the business imperative to deliver value to your customers faster, with less risk, and at enterprise scale. But where do you start? There are so many approaches and products for implementing continuous delivery (CD) of modern apps.

    Join our webinar to learn about three trends that can make your delivery pipelines inherently resilient, accessible, and continuous:

    ● continuous delivery as a relay race
    ● turning monitoring into automated action
    ● developer experience at the heart

    We’ll share a demo of a delivery pipeline that includes Concourse CI, Pivotal Build Service, and Spinnaker CD with Pivotal Container Service as the destination. You’ll learn how a loosely coupled pipeline can provide speed with guardrails, enabling you to scale delivery of your modern applications.

    This webinar is especially relevant for those who:

    ● think full software delivery automation is a pipe dream.
    ● have an app delivery pipeline that’s a brittle monolith to maintain.

  • Breaking the Business Bottleneck: Fixing the Problems (Part 2) Recorded: Oct 16 2019 55 mins
    Rick Clark, Field CTO and Coté, Director at Pivotal
    For the most part, we know what IT needs to do become a "tech company": move to a more frequent, usually weekly release cycle, focus on customer-centric design, and rely on cloud platforms to automate infrastructure toil. What does the rest of your organization, outside of IT, need to do?

    In part two of this webinar series, we discuss new models and tactics to break the business bottleneck across strategy, finance, and management. Based on case studies and first hand experience you'll be able to start planning the rollout of digital transformation beyond IT.
  • Confronting the Business Bottleneck: Digital Strategy Beyond IT (Part 1) Recorded: Oct 3 2019 57 mins
    Rick Clark, Field CTO and Coté, Director at Pivotal
    "Digital transformation is a fancy term for customer innovation and operational excellence that drive financial results." —John Rymer and Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester

    Digital transformation is a strategic imperative for many organizations. They suffer "existential threats" from "tech companies." Thanks to DevOps, Agile, and Cloud, IT departments know how to operate like "tech companies." But do the rest of their organizations - "The Business" - know how to take advantage of these new capabilities?

    Based on real world case studies, this series explores the theory that business is now the bottleneck for digital transformation. There are a handful of enterprises that have broken the business bottleneck, like retailer, The Home Depot, that are figuring it out and thriving. There are more organizations, though, that are stumbling. IT isn’t the bottleneck anymore, it’s finance, strategy, and management.

    Part one explains this case, and part two will prescribe how organizations can break the bottleneck.

  • Using Windows Clusters on Kubernetes for Legacy .NET Applications Recorded: Sep 19 2019 63 mins
    Chris Umbel, Advisory Solutions Architect and David Dieruf, Product Marketing Manager at Pivotal
    Supporting legacy applications—much less figuring out how to containerize them—is not high on anyone’s list. Everyone has old infrastructure hosting even older apps, and is asked to “get it in a container.” With the introduction of Windows clusters in Kubernetes, we’re given a straightforward way of accomplishing this that results in very little tech debt.

    In this hour-long online class, we’ll set the following goals:

    ● Make no code changes during the move.
    ● Run the app in a true Windows container.
    ● Show step-by-step how it can be accomplished.

    We look forward to you joining us.
  • Infrastructure Design For Kubernetes (EMEA) Recorded: Sep 18 2019 54 mins
    Fabio Chiodini, Advisory Platform Architect EMEA Pivotal
    Kubernetes is all the rage, and there are a ton of tools to deploy it. There are installers, cloud managed setups, full distributions like Pivotal Container Service (PKS), etc. but there’s always the question - beyond the software aspect, what do I need to build and provide for a successful container orchestration environment? Host types? What about storage? Networking? Load balancing?

    Attendees of this webinar will walk away with an understanding of the considerations when choosing:

    ● compute platforms to run containers, along with storage systems (what is CSI anyways?);
    ● networking and load balancing.

    Think of this as ‘K8S for infrastructure folks’.

  • How to Boost Performance of .NET Microservices with Pivotal Cloud Cache Recorded: Sep 2 2019 20 mins
    Nikhil Chandrappa, Data Engineer, Pivotal
    In-memory caching is not new technology. But it takes on renewed significance with cloud-native, distributed applications. Modern day caching can alleviate the performance and availability challenges associated with your most important modern apps.

    In this webinar, we will explore why caching should be a vital part of your distributed systems. You’ll learn how:

    ● A highly available cache can keep apps online serving data, and protect against data loss, in the event of infrastructure failure.
    ● An elastic cache like PCC can adjust to the needs of your applications. Elasticity at the data layer is crucial for the elasticity of the entire system.
    ● A caching layer can reduce the adverse efforts of network latency on system performance.
    ● Enterprises use PCC alongside Pivotal Platform. We’ll also examine the day-to-day experience of managing the caching service.
    ● PCC can support caching patterns for Spring and .NET microservices.

    Join us to find out how caching can improve the performance of your essential customer-facing systems.

    Brian McClain, Assoc. Principal Product Marketing Manager & Tyler Britten, Sr. Principal Technologist, Pivotal
    As the popularity of microservices continues to rise, so does the need for an efficient means of intercommunication. Features such as service discovery, client-side load balancing, and circuit breakers become invaluable tools as the complexity of your landscape grows. Thus, the rising popularity of the service mesh as means of delivering those capabilities.

    While this technology space is still young, Istio and Envoy have already become the tools that many use to solve these problems. The Pivotal Application Service (PAS) integration with these solutions introduced weighted routing and guaranteed service identity—and now we’re bringing these features to Pivotal Container Service (PKS) via the new Pivotal Ingress Router.

    In this webinar, we’ll explore why a service mesh matters and how Pivotal Ingress Router works, and we’ll give you a sneak peak into its future.
  • Why Developers Need a Platform and Not Just Containers (EMEA) Recorded: Aug 7 2019 59 mins
    Adam Fowler, Platform Architect, Pivotal
    Over the last few years, software containers have become a big deal. According to Gartner, "by 2023, Kubernetes will be deployed in more than 80% of all on-premises private cloud and cloud-inspired environments, up from less than 10% today, requiring I&O to acquire operational competencies."

    The wide adoption of containers has been primarily driven by developers. But to see real success, you need to work across both development and operations teams to ensure the environment in which these containers run can operate securely and at scale.

    Join Pivotal Platform Architect, Adam Fowler, for a webinar where we’ll explore how a platform offering, layered on top of containers, enables developers to build and deploy applications at speed and scale, thereby increasing productivity and product time to market.
  • Cloud-Native Patterns and the Benefits of MySQL as a Platform Managed Service Recorded: Aug 2 2019 49 mins
    Judy Wang, Product Management and Jagdish Mirani, Product Marketing

    We’ll cover these topics and share how enterprises like yours are delivering greater outcomes with our Pivotal Platform managed MySQL.

    Now you can scale without fear of failure.
  • Learn Cloud-Native .NET: Core Configuration Fundamentals with Steeltoe Recorded: Jul 24 2019 62 mins
    David Dieruf, Principal Product Marketing Manager, Pivotal
    How do you avoid a messy jumble of configuration management? First, you can rule out holding settings internally to the app. Hard coding values in a compiled artifact limits almost everything about an application’s ability to scale. Attaching a .config file to each instance of the application is also not reasonable. (Yes, your externalized config values from the artifact.) But you’re no better off with managing and updating things.

    This class will visit the Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration package and the many options it offers .NET Core developers. We’ll cover everything from using the default providers (and what’s going on under the covers) to custom providers implemented in Steeltoe. There are many stops in between where developers can achieve the best mix of business requirements and technical needs.

    Attend this class to learn the following:

    ● How to use external configurations with Spring Config using Steeltoe
    ● Best practices for externalizing configuration
    ● How to get the most from Spring Config without adding complexity
  • Cut the Digital Transformation Fluff: Creating Metrics That Matter Recorded: Jul 18 2019 63 mins
    Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Research & Patrick Feeney, Healthcare Services Corporation
    As the old adage goes, “you can’t manage what you can’t measure.” But what if the measurements are part of the problem? After all, you can move the needle on what you measure, but there may be unanticipated outcomes. When it comes to transforming how an organization delivers software, how you measure success also needs to change.

    Despite a marked adoption of agile development practices in the last five years, Forrester Research found that developers haven’t made much progress at delivering software faster. What’s the disconnect? Forrester has found a number of interrelated factors behind organizations that outperform in software delivery. One of them is metrics.

    Join this webinar with special guests Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Research Analyst, and Patrick Feeney, Senior Director of IT Digital Products at Healthcare Services Corporation (HCSC), to learn:

    ● The types of metrics high-performance software teams are using
    ● Which metrics are counterproductive to improving software delivery
    ● How HCSC has used metrics to manage software delivery change
    ● Which roles should be using which metrics and when

    Speakers:
    Jeffrey Hammond, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
    Patrick Feeney, Senior Director, IT Digital Products, Healthcare Services Corporation

    CUSTOM SIDECAR PROCESSES (BETA)
    In Pivotal Application ServiceⓇ 2.6 (PAS), developers can run custom sidecar processes in the same container as their application. This simplifies development for all kinds of “wire” use cases, including proxy forwarding, client-side load balancing, timeouts, and retries.

    MULTI-CLOUD CONTINUOUS DELIVERY WITH SPINNAKER
    PCF now integrates nicely with the most popular CD tool, Spinnaker. Spinnaker 1.14 now supports several advanced CD scenarios with PCF. As a result, large development teams can more easily deploy to production to improve outcomes. Use Spinnaker with PAS as well as Enterprise PKSⓇ. (This integration is backed by community support.)

    NEW PERMISSIONS MODEL IN CONCOURSE FOR PCF (coming soon) Concourse for PCF 5.2 will include a powerful new permissions model to better segment access to build pipelines. The new release will add compatibility with CredHub for secrets management as well.

    MULTI-DATACENTER REPLICATION CAPABILITIES FOR MySQL (coming soon) MySQL for PCF 2.7 will add multi-DC replication capabilities as a beta feature. This will offer more stability and scalability for your database apps.

    Plus much more!
