About this talk

For many good reasons, the cloud, refactoring, and microservices are on everyone’s minds. They hold the promise of reinventing businesses and streamlining operations to drive revenue, innovation, growth, and resiliency. If your business is on the path to modernization, you must ask yourself, “where’s my company on this journey, and is the plan mapped out correctly?” Organizations are taking an evolutionary approach to application development, going from monoliths to API/REST services and eventually to microservices via refactoring. This webinar is for anyone with IBM i, tasked with modernization initiatives looking for guidance on how to approach these projects. In this session, you will learn: Develop a strategic, continuous approach to modernization that includes process discovery and collaborates with the business to address IT questions in a nuanced, data-driven way that informs the execution of a modernization plan. Determine what business drivers dictate your current and future environment Apply tools and processes built to help you determine when it is best to refactor applications into microservices, when to use APIs, and when to keep your existing applications intact.
