F11-1004: Modernizing Today’s Complex Applications for the Cloud

Track: Specialized Application Test Environments

Many enterprises are relying on legacy applications that once efficiently supported simple business processes. Over the years, business processes have grown more complex, and the applications that support them are now integrated with many other applications and technologies. As such, businesses today are increasingly embracing the need to become more agile, and the shift to the cloud is one of the key initiatives they are turning to. In this session , the presenter discusses the need for modernizing composite applications to increase business agility before adopting the cloud.

In the journey to increase business agility, application delivery teams play a pivotal role to modernization. They have visibility into the underlying application complexities that help effectively manage business risk. For example, it is estimated that a typical enterprise raises about 2,000 change requests a month; application delivery teams can plan, manage and test the risks and assess the impact on multiple applications to understand business risk.

Attendees will learn:

  • What are composite applications
  • How to effectively manage change in composite applications
  • The best methods to lower business risk through planning, developing and testing composite applications
