There are many missteps in the app modernization journey. For more than ten years, we’ve worked with clients on hundreds of modernization projects, from single apps to portfolios of apps in large enterprises and our experience has led us to identify four of the most common anti-patterns impacting organizations.

The performance, scalability, and flexibility that Kubernetes offers are big reasons for its rapid adoption. At the same time, however, it’s not simple or easy to manage Kubernetes clusters, which means third party tools are practically a requirement as you scale. I have been reminded of this a lot lately. While attending three major tech conferences in recent months, I spoke with a number of companies at varying phases of their Kubernetes journey.

The companies we work with at Tanzu by Broadcom are constantly looking for better, faster ways of developing and releasing quality software. But digital transformation means fundamentally changing the way you do business, a process that can be derailed by any number of obstacles. In his recent video series, my colleague Michael Coté identifies 14 reasons why it’s hard to change development practices in large organizations.

As many VMware customers have found in recent years, cloud native microservice-based applications improve IT operations efficiency and security along with developer speed and productivity. When data is at the heart of those mission-critical applications, VMware Tanzu Data Services, a portfolio of popular enterprise-grade cloud native data solutions for data in motion and at rest, can help.

As cloud computing continues to grow in popularity, so does the need for accurate cloud cost forecasting. With cloud costs being variable and unpredictable, it can be difficult to know how much you’re going to spend each month, a problem that can lead to budget overruns and financial problems. This makes cloud cost forecasting a necessary step in owning and managing your cloud efficiently. In simple terms, cloud cost forecasting is the process of predicting future cloud costs.

Tanzu Developer Advocate and Enlightning host Whitney Lee speaks with Tanzu Solutions Architect, Alex Barbato to unpack the Software Bill of Material (SBOM). SBOMs have gained a lot of attention in the past decade, most recently as a result of a slew of White House Executive Orders on improving cybersecurity and service delivery. Listen in as they discuss the most common use cases for SBOMs, using CVEs for triage and remediation, as well as the Vulnerability Exploitability Exchange (VEX), and much more!

Security is something we all need, and something we would all love to forget about. 🙂 Kubescape is a CNCF project that helps to secure your clusters easily and quickly. It helps you validate the configuration of your control plane, workloads, and RBAC; and it finds vulnerabilities, cutting the noise very effectively. In general, Kubescape assists with hardening configurations like network policies and seccomp profiles.

Nandish Parmar, director for virtualization platforms at Solera, explains how different teams, when using their own tool sets, bring the need for a solution that can work across those scenarios. Developer education is also a challenge as they must understand pods, containers, and all dependencies running on Kubernetes platforms.

Applications running in virtual machines (VMs) are mostly static and single tenant, relying on backup of the file system. Kubernetes is a multitenant environment with lots of metadata information (e.g., config maps, secrets, pods, etc.) and distributed applications. So, a Kubernetes data protection solution needs to understand Kubernetes patterns to deal with continuous changes inside a cluster, and a cloud native data protection solution should be application-centric and not infrastructure-centric.

GraphQL is a declarative query language that simplifies retrieving data from an application's back end. It provides a clear and comprehensive description of the data in your API, giving you the ability to request only what you need. This makes it easy to evolve APIs over time and enables powerful developer tools.

With globally distributed applications (and teams), the job of software architect isn’t getting any easier; applications are growing increasingly complex, and architects are spread thin. You can’t be involved with every decision. You must empower your teams while ensuring they make good choices. How do you do that? How can frameworks, such as Spring for Java and Steeltoe for.NET, not only make your life easier but also help your teams deliver robust applications to production?

As enterprises see the need to accelerate their software development processes, traditional operations teams are evolving to become platform engineering teams. These teams are tasked with designing and building self-service platforms for development teams that reduce the amount of work required to build, deploy and operate software securely, all while accelerating the development teams in delivering business outcomes.

The adoption of multi-cloud is on the rise among enterprises. However, major cloud providers including AWS, Azure, GCP, or VMware Cloud on AWS are different and monitoring across diverse cloud environments is not easy. Learn what metrics should you as DevOps or SRE engineer observe on each of the major cloud providers. Also, learn why is Tanzu Observability by Wavefront essential for unified, full-stack, multi-cloud observability, and analytics.

Why You Need Application Modernization Most developers work on existing applications (apps): products and services that have been built, maintained, and updated over long periods of time. Normally, these apps exist as a web of tightly coupled, sparsely documented systems.

It's common in talks about digital transformation to make fun of waterfall as a software delivery methodology, but that's not entirely fair. Waterfall works great if your requirements are unchanged, you understand your users and, as a result, you don't need to be highly adaptable to users' changing needs.

Modernizing Software Development to Improve Your Business. Wrapping your mind around what exactly "digital transformation" is-and, more importantly, what to do about it-can be difficult. In my experience, "digital" is a catch-all phrase for "doing new things with IT." That could mean anything from moving desktop management to virtual desktops, using SaaS more, or selling insurance policies and industrial solvents on Instagram.
