Panel: Cloud Application Modernization – a Must for Cloud Migration

Application modernization is a key consideration when switching from on-premises systems to the public cloud, whether the impetus is a cloud-first directive or a push from within IT to digitize legacy systems. It can reduce operational overhead, replace obsolete technologies and improve user experience. Tune into this panel as topic experts dive into why modernizing cloud applications is important for cloud migration. Hear as topic experts share the reasoning behind the benefits of modernizing cloud applications, rather than using the “lift and shift ” method. What is the difference? What cost savings does it bring?

Listen in as the panelists go in depth on the best practices for re-architecture of cloud-native environments, as well as the best practices for speed to mission/increased agility in a cloud environment.
