Learn about modernizing your existing legacy monoliths to support multi-channel app experiences across web, mobile, AR/VR, voice and wearables.
There are a lot of articles out there on migrating to cloud-native architectures and microservices from a monolithic application, but most have very little detail on exactly how to achieve this in production environments. Progress CTO, Dmitri Tcherevik, hosted a webinar to address real questions from information technology leaders directly. Below are the enterprise architecture considerations that were discussed for modernizing monoliths that were discussed:
The webinar included live polls of enterprise architects, IT directors, CTOs and CIOs who shared insights about different modes of engagement and monolith technologies in production. When it came to frontend platform support, I was impressed with the traction of wearables and voice in the enterprise. In the second question, 17% selected other for monolith technologies beyond Java and .NET, which will require flexible data access and security strategies to support the journey for all of these systems.
Q1. What frontend platforms do you support?
Q2. What technology is your monolith built on?
The monolith modernization journey includes migrating to the cloud, abstracting the monolith with BaaS + API Gateway and finally strangling the monolith by building scalable microservices to migrate slices of functionality behind the abstraction. Strangling your applications may sound violent, but it will make it stronger by supporting modern experiences at cloud scale.
The end result is a reference architecture that shows how Progress can uniquely support the elusive journey to cloud native architectures.
