Dynatrace at CF Summit Basel: To Refactor or Not - How to Systematically Modernize Your Java Applications
To Refactor or Not: How to Systematically Modernize Your Java Applications - Kamala Dasika, Pivotal & Michael Villiger, Dynatrace Although Cloud Native Apps are the future, most modern enterprises actually consist of a heterogeneous mix of workloads. Enterprises are now looking beyond just new applications as part of their modernization strategy in order to to reduce technical debt, redesign and re-platform their monolithic java applications to a cloud-native architecture. With such projects increasingly receiving executive attention, initiatives like this begin with big questions - where do I start, what applications make sense to refactor, and what is the user impact? In this talk we will take you step-by-step and provide a structured framework for: x Choosing the right candidate apps for modernization x Uncovering the seams in your monolith you that you can carve off x Discovering dependencies to reduce cohesion and coupling x Minimizing customer impact during migration About Kamala Dasika Kamala Dasika has been working in Cloud Foundry product team since 2011 and has previously held various product or engineering positions at VMware, Tibco, SAP, and Applied Biosystems.
