App Modernization with .NET Core: a Journey from Mainframe to Microservices

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.

  • Strangling the Monolith With A Data-Driven Approach: A Case Study Apr 29 2020 3:00 am UTC 60 mins
    David Julia, Director, VMware Pivotal Labs Sydney & Amjad Sidqi, Associate Director, VMware Pivotal Labs Sydney
    This is a real life story of how one team successfully rewrote a legacy health insurance system, with thousands of unknown business rules so complex that no one could make heads or tails of them, where a tiny mistake could put millions of dollars at risk.

    Through our analysis of the scenario, we’ll share how you can:
    • Build statistically significant confidence in your system with data-driven testing
    • Take a Lean approach to legacy rewrites - strangle the monolith safely
    • Validate your system’s accuracy when you don’t know the legacy business rules
    • Get business and QA buy-in to leverage Continuous Delivery in a legacy environment
    • Show progress on your legacy rewrite so that your project doesn't get cancelled

    Finally, we’ll walk through some guidelines that you can immediately apply to determine what to do with your own applications. You’ll walk away armed with the knowledge of when to rewrite, buy something off the shelf, do nothing, containerise or “strangle” the application.

  • Cloud-Native Fundamentals: An Introduction to 12-Factor Applications Recorded: Jan 30 2020 62 mins
    Nate Schutta, Software Architect
    It seems like a new cloud-native technology or project is launched every week, and though there are technical changes required for building and operating cloud-native applications, technology alone isn’t a silver bullet. It turns out that how you build your applications is critical to enable seamless scaling and resiliency to failures. What do you have to do to ensure your applications can fully leverage the power and flexibility the cloud offers?

    The 12-Factor principles have been around for a decade and have proven themselves as core, foundational principles for cloud-native applications. But they require changes to how you design your applications, the way teams collaborate on code, and more. Understanding the 12-Factor principles is a strong foundation for adopting cloud-native patterns and practices.

    Join Pivotal's Nate Schutta, developer advocate, to learn:

    ● Which of the 12 Factors are most critical to building scalable applications
    ● Which of the 12 Factors are most likely violated by your heritage applications
    ● What you can do to make your existing applications more 12-Factor compliant
    ● Which of the 12 Factors are most critical to applications moving to the cloud
    ● How to externalize state and configuration in order to simplify scaling and code changes

    We look forward to you joining us.

  • Solving the Kubernetes Puzzle for Microservices Recorded: Jan 30 2020 70 mins
    Nathaniel Schutta, Software Architect, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research, Joe Nedumgottil , Principal at Solstice
    The agility of microservices appeals to many, but where to start can be a journey in itself. Meanwhile, microservices are often conflated with Kubernetes, the container orchestration platform. This can lead folks down the wrong path by putting the proverbial technology cart before the architectural horse.

    When it comes down to it, not everything should be a microservice and not everything should run in Kubernetes. How do you decide when, where, and how to take advantage of this powerful application pattern and technology paradigm combination? Join Joe Nedumgottil, Principal at Solstice, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst at 451 Research, and Nathaniel Schutta, Developer Advocate at VMware to learn:

    - How to determine if an application should be a microservice
    - What challenges can you expect with adopting microservices
    - What are the advantages of microservices
    - From monitoring to logging to service meshes, what do you need to consider for Day Two operations when adopting Kubernetes for microservices
    - Why you should look beyond code quality to measure success, including business metrics, with microservices on Kubernetes
