Abstract

Enterprises today are in the throes of modernizing their legacy applications in order to leverage modern technologies—such as cloud, containers, mobile, IoT, AI, and more—so that they can deliver software innovation faster.

Serverless functions offer an incredible opportunity for organizations to accelerate their cloud-native and digital transformation journey. Serverless provides a compelling pattern for modernizing legacy applications while simplifying operations, reducing infrastructure cost, and improving developer productivity and time to market.

Advances in open source technologies that allow organizations to run serverless applications reliably, not just on public clouds, but also on their own existing infrastructure, have greatly increased the adoption of serverless across large enterprises. This made serverless a viable technology for migrating brownfield, existing applications to the digital era, both on-premise and in the cloud.

In this talk, we will discuss key patterns and quick wins for modernizing legacy applications using serverless architectures and functions as a service (FaaS).
