Arts, Crafts and App Modernization (Ep. 37)

August 8, 2017 Jeff Kelly

Turns out, Cloud Foundry isn't just for net-new applications. More and more enterprises are replatforming and modernizing existing, mission critical applications, according to Shaun Anderson, an Advisory Solutions Architect at Pivotal. They're doing so to take advantage of the flexibility Cloud Foundry gives them to quickly develop and release new features in order to reduce time to market. 

In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Shaun chats with Jeff and Dormain about his experience leading Pivotal's application modernization practice, shares advice on how enterprises can choose which applications are the best candidates for modernization, and discusses the human element in application modernization. There will also be some arts & crafts. Don't forget the popsicle sticks and yarn.
