As technology changes, learn how you can take advantage of the latest innovations and modernize legacy monoliths into agile, cloud-native architectures.

The architecture of your application is critically important—it’s the foundation upon which current initiatives and future innovation depend. The technologies that enable the capabilities needed for the applications of tomorrow move quickly, but when you have invested significant resources into an existing enterprise system, it’s not efficient or effective to just start over from scratch every time.

As technology executives, we know we have to leverage existing systems even as we transition to a cloud-native architecture. Digital transformation efforts depend on a smart adoption of new technologies that prepare us for the agile, scalable future without disrupting the present.

Progress CTO and innovation expert, Dmitri Tcherevik, recently hosted a webinar on the top 5 Architecture Considerations for Highly Innovative CIOs. Dmitri’s considerations cover a wide range of business needs and focus on overcoming digital complexity while mitigating cost, compliance and other major concerns.

In this talk, you’ll find the answers to key questions about today’s application development landscape. Have you thought about these considerations in your application architecture?

  1. The post-app era is moving beyond apps and into multi-platform experiences. How can you enable your developers to easily code for every platform—not just web and mobile, but AR/VR and chatbots too?
  2. Accessing your data in the cloud opens up a wealth of opportunities, but this has long been a challenge for on-premise monoliths weighed down with security and compliance concerns. How can you securely access your data in the cloud?
  3. When working with monolithic architectures, it can be hard to envision a smooth transition to more nimble microservices. How can you “strangle the monolith” and elegantly implement microservices side-by-side with a monolith?
  4. Scalability is a major component of a modern agile architecture, as an optimized allocation of resources allows you to meet demand while limiting costs. How can you move towards a cloud-native and serverless future that can deliver these benefits?
  5. The amount of data available to organizations continues to explode, but this has only made the challenge of effective manual interpretation greater. How can you use cognitive services to train actionable models automatically?

At Progress, we have built a platform that is designed to meet any or all of these challenges. From our popular open-source NativeScript cross-platform development framework, to our industry-leading hybrid data connectivity solution, to our powerful self-learning DataRPM cognitive services.

We have been recognized as the leader in mobile development platforms through our Progress Kinvey serverless cloud backend. Kinvey provides technologies that are critical to any modern application architecture, and can be a great place to begin your digital transformation.
