Head-to-Head: Monolith vs. Microservices

Wednesday, June 23 at 2pm ET

The pace of technology innovation has dramatically accelerated and IT can no longer postpone the modernization of legacy systems. Modernizing legacy applications is an iterative process—one that doesn’t have to involve a start-from-scratch approach.

Decoupling is one of the approaches companies can take to create flexibility without ripping out the entire legacy portfolio. By refactoring systems into microservices, companies can take advantage of the scale, reusability, and flexibility of cloud-native apps.

Join our upcoming Tech Talk to learn more about how you can use OutSystems to leverage microservices and to modernize your IT portfolio in a progressive approach. Some of the topics we’ll cover include:

  • What functions should be broken out of a monolithic application and how granular your microservices should be
  • How to realize the scalability and flexibility from modernizing to the cloud
  • Best practices to define a modular and future-ready architecture

Simple is STILL Better: Embrace Speed & Simplicity for a competitive edge

Customers’ embrace of the web and smart phones creates massive new data sets, many of them unstructured or semi-structured. These include opinions, preferences, chat and email transcripts, and web clickstreams. The hardware and software technologies underpinning first generation warehouses were not designed to manage data at today’s volume or variety. While coercing older technologies to satisfy new demands may be possible, the results are inefficient and burdened with unplanned, unnecessary costs.

PureData System for Analytics has been designed, integrated and optimized to deliver data services to today's demanding applications with simplicity, speed and lower cost.
