Legacy IT systems are a top concern for CIOs planning to embark on their Digital Transformation journey, especially for organisations with a legacy applications stack.
With Application Modernisation, businesses can redesign and migrate their legacy applications to the latest technology stack by leveraging Azure Services through emerging technologies such as serverless functions, microservices, DevOps, and Cloud containers. This can extend the applications’ lifespan for years to come whilst lowering cost and ongoing maintenance effort, but requires upfront effort and relevant expertise to ensure the applications are cloud native and future-proof.
By innovating a new application on Microsoft Azure, companies can transform their existing manual processes into cloud-native applications and move away from monolithic legacy systems.
In this video interview with Business Reporter, Matt Williams, MD Telstra EMEA, discusses the technology trends seen during the COVID-19 pandemic and covers topics such as digital acceleration, agility and cyber security, and tips on how businesses can thrive.

China continues to grow in importance as a market for foreign companies, accounting for one-fifth of the world’s consumers, producers, innovators, depositors and data users. Despite the challenges brought by COVID-19, the country’s GDP is expected to grow by 1.5% in 2020, at a time when other major economies are projecting negative growth.
While the challenges of entering and doing business in China remain significant, it remains an attractive market for its sheer size and growth potential. Over the next year, opportunities may be set to increase depending on China’s unilateral reform plans, and the possibility of the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment negotiations being concluded.
Join Telstra on this panel hosted by Chayora, where we explore what’s driving China’s economic growth and what to consider when doing business there. This webinar is best suited for IT professionals.

It’s not a novel insight to note that the pandemic has spurred economy-wide adoption of new technology and innovation.
In fact, what’s clear is that many of these changes were already planned – and would likely have been rolled out at a more leisurely pace over the coming months and years. Yet, the impact of COVID-19 and the requirement to empower a new-found generation of remote workers and digital customer interactions have rapidly accelerated projects that might otherwise have languished.
The crisis has seen the pace of delivery, from ideation to deployment, shrink from years to months in many businesses – even those that steeped in tradition and with significant legacy estates.
In this webinar well suited to IT professionals we will explore:
- How has the pandemic impacted innovation and collaboration amongst remote workforces?
- How to address the right balance between regulation, standards and innovation?
- What are the implications of a more interconnected and distributed digital world?
- How software-defined networking and its applications can enable businesses to respond to rapid shifts in demand and expand into new markets?
- How are enterprises adopting an ecosystems approach?
