Legacy Application Modernization: One Company's Journey
Agility and elegance with enterprise applications can be the main differentiating factor for companies that need to innovate in our increasingly competitive world.

Transforming a legacy application into modern, agile, services-oriented application architecture takes planning. If you are managing traditional applications and have been fighting to keep up with day to day mission-critical activities with the system while addressing new and emerging ‘innovation’ requirements, you may have been considering looking into options to replace your legacy application. Or you may be considering another option - extending the life of these applications by upgrading, enhancing or adding new capabilities to the system.

There are numerous options within each of these areas and they may overlap. My topic will explore these options, the pros, cons, and available tools and techniques to move forward with transformation at minimum risk to the business.
