Description

Every organization has at least a phalanx or two in the cloud. This is, understandably, changing the way we architect our systems. But your application portfolio is full of heritage systems that hail from the time before everything was as a service. Not all of those applications will make it to the valley beyond. But how do you grapple with your legacy portfolio?

Nathaniel Schutta explores the strategies, tools, and techniques you can apply as you evolve towards a cloud native future. Join in to learn how to evaluate your legacy applications, how to take those heritage systems to the cloud, what the 12 factors mean for you, where it makes sense to use microservices, and what tools and services you’ll need to add to your repertoire.
