BluePhoenix Offers On-Demand Webcast Featuring Analyst Phil Murphy From an Independent Research Firm on Legacy Application Modernization

Follows on Heels of Successful Live Event; Provides Key Insights Into Legacy Issues

CARY, North Carolina and HERZLIA, Israel, August 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BluePhoenix Solutions , a leader in Enterprise IT Modernization, today announced the availability of an on-demand Webcast on "Legacy Application Modernization - Migrate or Stagnate." Forrester's Phil Murphy of Forrester Research is the featured presenter.

"After hosting an extremely successful event with several hundred registrations, we decided to extend the value of Phil Murphy's insights by offering this Webcast on-demand," said Tsipora Cohen, vice president of worldwide marketing, BluePhoenix Solutions. "Using survey results and methods to evaluate the fate of existing applications, Phil provides recommended approaches and solutions based upon companies' legacy system situations."

The premise of the Webcast is that to remain competitive, organizations must leverage existing systems without giving up business agility. Murphy addresses the critical questions being asked by CIOs and CTOs today, including:

- How long do we have before we must move from legacy databases such as IMS, IDMS, ADABAS, VSAM, or Datacom DB?

- How long do we have before we must move off a 3GL (3rd Generation Language) or 4GL such as Natural, ADSO, PowerBuilder, or PL/I?

- How do we approach database and application migration?

- Can we do legacy modernization projects in-house, or should we look for help?

- SOA enablement of migrated applications-can we do it and if so how?

Interested parties may attend the one-hour on-demand Webcast at http://www.bphx.com/news/migrate_stagnate_web.cfm

In addition to a wide-angle lens that provides a snapshot of the overall health of your system, you must also have precise, ...

As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghav...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.
It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table there's money on the table, too. Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across production and testing environm...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
