Do these problems keep you up at night?
Your team is big enough but you can’t keep up with the feature requests
Velocity is lower than it should be, but individual story estimates seem appropriate
Features built in one place introduce bugs somewhere else
Sprint planning takes a long time due to all the special cases
You want the advantages of Domain Driven Design, but don’t know how to get there
Do you hear your team saying these things?
We need to move to Domain Driven Design, but how do we get there from here?
We could deliver so much faster with Microservices. It would cut delivery time in half!
Yes, we need to do unit testing, but there’s no time for it now – we’ll start next sprint
Who is on fire fighting duty this week?
There are so many logic paths, I can’t test them all!
Modernize your Legacy Monolith
Quickly and Easily
Rewriting a working application is like throwing away money. There are so many business rules and lessons learned wrapped up in your code base you will set your company back years by rewriting. Old software can be modernized over time to give it higher quality and make it faster to fix bugs and add features. Imagine releasing bug fixes in hours, not weeks. New features are added, debugged, and released faster than your customers can request them.
Simple “Lift and Shift” strategies can get you off-premise and save you some operations costs, however the real cost savings of a cloud strategy aren’t realized until you take advantage of everything the cloud has to offer. Fast feature deployment, infinite scaling, and automatic deployment are all available, even for legacy systems.
To wring every bit of productivity out of the cloud you need to modernize the architecture as well as the application, but you don’t have to do it all at once. By identifying the hot spots in your legacy code, you can focus on the features that have the highest ROI first. Adapt your code piece by piece and know exactly how much you are saving on each one.
You Don’t Have to Go It Alone!
We have updated many applications over the years, so we know the drill. First stabilize the current system, make a plan of attack, then start chipping away at the boulder so that each sprint makes a definite step forward, and gives concrete improvements that can be seen by upper management.
