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.

  • Deploying Kubernetes to Drive Business, Not Complexity May 29 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chuck Knostman, Dave Bartoletti and Cornelia Davis
    Everybody is talking about the promise of Kubernetes, but it takes more than optimism to turn a complex technology into something that can deliver real business results.

    Once deployed, Kubernetes presents a litany of operational, management, and cultural challenges for which many users will not have prepared adequately. This webinar will highlight approaches to successfully implementing Kubernetes at enterprise scale and making it an effective facilitator of digital transformation.

    Join special guest Dave Bartoletti of Forrester Research in conversation with Chuck Knostman, Vice President IT at T-Mobile, and Cornelia Davis, Vice President of Technology for Pivotal, as they discuss how companies can get the most value from their Kubernetes deployments, which workloads are best suited for those environments, and the true state of Kubernetes adoption among enterprises.

  • Four Steps Toward a Safer Continuous Delivery Practice (Hint: Add Monitoring) Recorded: Jan 23 2019 58 mins
    James Ma, Senior Product Manager, Pivotal & Michael Villiger, Sr. Technical Partner Manager, Dynatrace
    The demands of fast incremental code development require a stable, safe, and continuous delivery pipeline that can get your code into the hands of your customers without delay. Put your continuous delivery pipeline on autopilot by automating and simplifying the workflow—continuous integration to production readiness—and by using an automated monitoring solution to prevent bad builds from impacting production.

    1. Modeling and visualizing your build and delivery process as a pipeline (defined as a single, declarative config file) using Concourse CI.

    2. Leveraging integrations to trigger actions and share data, supporting functions like testing, collaboration, and monitoring.

    3. Enhancing your end-to-end continuous delivery pipeline with contextual deployment event feeds to Dynatrace.

    4. Adding automated, metrics-based quality gates between pre-production stages and an automatic post-production approval step, all with specifications defined in source control.

    Attendees will learn how some of the unique capabilities of Concourse CI and Pivotal Cloud Foundry, coupled with Dynatrace’s software intelligence, can put your continuous delivery pipeline on autopilot and ensure safer production outcomes.

  • Why Hybrid Cloud Demands Consistency Recorded: Dec 5 2018 60 mins
    Thomas Squeo, CTO, West Corp, Dave Bartoletti, VP, Forrester & Andrew Zeller, Sr. Product Marketing Manager
    Companies have realized that hybrid cloud adoption approaches better meet their needs for various reasons including increased developer velocity, improved infrastructure efficiency, and high availability/stability.

    But to take advantage of all hybrid cloud has to offer, companies must leverage consistent platforms, services, and tools across their hybrid cloud “continuum” to build and deploy new apps, modernize existing apps, and drive up infrastructure efficiency. Business stakeholders, development teams, and IT teams will benefit from a hybrid cloud approach that offers consistent services, tools, security, and operations wherever they choose to build, modernize, or deploy applications.

    Join Pivotal’s John Allwright, with special guests Thomas Squeo of West Corp and Dave Bartoletti of Forrester, for a discussion about the benefits of hybrid and multi-cloud approaches, and best practices for realizing their full benefit.

    Thomas Squeo, CTO, West Corp is responsible for West’s ongoing digital transformation bringing tools, techniques and processes to drive culture and product delivery via enterprise architecture throughout the corporation’s technology portfolio.

    Dave Bartoletti VP, Principal Analyst Serving Infrastructure & Operations Professionals has more than 25 years of experience as a software executive at several high-profile technology and financial services leaders.

  • How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads Recorded: Nov 14 2018 59 mins
    Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk, Cornelia Davis & Ivan Novick, Pivotal
    Containers have been widely adopted to make development and testing faster, and are now used at enterprise scale for stateless applications in production. Database infrastructure has not seen quite the same gains in terms of velocity over that same period, however.

    Can containers be as transformative for databases as they have been for application development? If container technology can be leveraged for running database workloads, what impact does this have on architects and operations teams that are responsible for running databases?

    We’ll discuss the trends—from virtualization to cloud to containerization—and the intersection of these platform trends with the data-driven world.
