Microservices, Kubernetes, and Application Modernization Done Right

How To Get Internal Support For Digital Modernization


In this talk by David Ogren, Principal Enterprise Architect at Lightbend, we draw from experiences helping our clients successfully create, migrate to, and manage cloud-native system architectures. We look at some of the common pitfalls and anti-patterns of modernization efforts, and some of the best practices for taking an incremental approach to transforming legacy systems. Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • How to frame project goals - How to leverage business SLAs to encourage organizational support for your modernization initiative
  • Why Reactive Microservices - Identifying the critical success factors for microservice-based applications, and how the principles of Reactive Systems can guide your design choices
  • Why containers and orchestration - How to adapt your development lifecycle for success with container orchestration using tools like Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift
  • How to migrate successfully - How to choose a migration strategy–such as the Strangler Pattern–that balances the competing goals of your modernization project
