Abstract

The talk will describe the methodology of legacy software modernization into the cloud-native form as a better alternative to the frequently used lift-and-shift approach. The methodology was developed by the software development and consulting company SoftServe, Inc., to help its customers enable new business models, find new ways to innovate, and improve the cost efficiency of their systems by moving to public cloud platforms such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, and others. The methodology builds on architectural concepts borrowed from the SEI Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method and Attribute-Driven Design methodologies in combination with 15 cloud-native factors, CI/CD, other DevOps practices, and patterns, such as Strangler, popular in modernization scenarios.
