App Modernization of WebSphere Applications on Linux to WebSphere Liberty Containers

App Modernization is the way forward, especially when you have hundreds of enterprise WebSphere applications nesting on AIX. These applications are age-old, heavy, and expensive to manage and modernize. This causes a huge roadblock especially when your business is growing and your apps need to be scalable, cost-efficient to run and should be highly available. CloudHedge removes the major barrier to AIX WebSphere containerization using the Automated Application Modernization Platform.

Automate Assessment and Analysis of Apps for Modernization

Thank you for reading my last blog on how to modernize age-old applications using automation. Let’s take a closer look at the available automated tools and explore the insights they extract to speed up app modernization. Assessment and Analysis The automation tool for application assessment should: There are free tools provided by cloud service providers, however, they focus more on infra (VMs and Bare Metal) and don’t focus on applications and databases (aspects mentioned above).

How to Modernize Applications using Automation

Automation and adoption of cloud (public and/or private) are the two key components for the success of Digital Transformation. Automation has been synonymous with the agility and scalability of applications and infrastructure. DevOps ensures quick release of apps all the way from development to test to the stage to production. Cloud ensures quick allocation of resources (Compute, Memory, Storage, Network, etc.) for the applications.

Accelerate Modernizing FSI Vertical's Legacy Apps

In the past 2 years over 25 FSI enterprises have explored CloudHedge to automate modernization of legacy apps. Applications within FSI enterprises are two kinds, the back-office apps and the external consumer apps (end customers or partners/vendors). Most of these applications were built with legacy technologies and are difficult to quickly add/fix features or hot-fixes. Some of the applications even take 3 months before a fix can be released for the end-users.

Containerizing Applications? Read this First!

Moving to the cloud? Containers top the chart when it comes to application modernization while shifting from legacy to cloud. To support the claim, statistics from Gartner do talk in similar numbers, and it’s interesting to know that containers additionally bring down OpEx and boosts productivity. Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, up from less than 30% today.
