Legacy applications—which can stand in the path of revenue generation, particularly for telcos who need flexibility and agility to keep up with market demands—remain at the core of most enterprises today. While replacing these monoliths with modern architectures such as microservices and containers isn’t an easy “rip and replace” endeavor, there are paths to modernization that work. To explore best practices for modernizing your application portfolio, join us at this year’s Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, for a presentation on how Verizon containerized the company’s legacy applications on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
When exploring how to modernize their application portfolio, Verizon evaluated Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as a way to innovate from inside out, by modernizing legacy applications while allowing IT to continue to deliver value.
In this session, Zohaib Khan, Red Hat’s application modernization and migration practice lead, and Malik Sayed, senior manager of digital architecture at Verizon, will share Verizon’s journey to containerize one of their most challenging applications. You’ll see the results of a two-months-long proof-of-concept, including successes, misses, and a roadmap for application modernization. You’ll learn about the journey, the pitfalls, and the lessons learned of modernizing complete application portfolios.
We hope you can join us for this presentation, which will be held Tuesday, May 2, from 4:30 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. in Room 153B of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center during the 2017 Red Hat Summit.
