Transforming mainframe monolithic applications to cloud native microservices
Microservices are a design architecture goal of any cloud native application. Once viewed as an approach leveraged by only internet-focused companies developing “born in the cloud” applications, a microservices architecture is now a goal of any enterprise aiming to increase scalability and speed to market while reducing development costs.
The path when considering legacy modernization, adapting existing mainframe monolithic systems to a microservices architecture is a much more complex challenge.
In this whitepaper we will:
Describe the key attributes and benefits of a microservices based architecture
- Investigate the challenges facing customers who wish to migrate mainframe monolithic applications to a microservices based architecture
- Describe a proposed incremental transformation journey for mainframe monolithic applications to cloud native microservices
