Session Name: Stop the Old ‘Lift and Shift’ - Take Your Monolith Direct to Cloud Native
Enterprises who have tried to lift-and-shift their monolithic applications to the cloud are often disappointed with the results. This approach has left them unable to take advantage of the full value of cloud computing - no elasticity, limited saving, and no improvement in engineering velocity or business agility. This session introduces new automation techniques that leverage advances in dynamic analysis, data science, and graph theory to automate and accelerate the decomposition of monolithic applications into microservices to accelerate the path to a cloud native architecture. This eliminates the need for such stopgaps as lift-and-shift and presents architects and developers with a scalable factory model to drive faster application modernization.
