5 Approaches to Cloud Applications Integration

CEB IT

Cloud-based applications are proliferating as organizations adopt software as a service (SaaS) and cloud-native development to enable digital business. At the same time, the number of options available for integrating these applications with each other and with on-premises systems is growing. This puts cloud integration on the priority list of every solution architect. Cloud IT applications Cloud Computing cloud integration integration

How to future-proof cloud applications

David Linthicum

Chances are, you’re either building a net-new application in the cloud or using native technology such as serverless or machine learning. Or, you’re porting an application to the cloud, either refactoring it to leverage native services, or lifting and shifting with little or no modification to the code or data. How do you ensure these applications last more than a few years on the cloud?

Optimize Your Application Organizational Structure

CEB IT

In the application industry, one of the most common questions for leaders is how to choose the “right” structure to achieve optimal business results and delivery for their organizations. The advent of digital business has huge ramifications on the future of the application organization. Add in size, agile, platforms, products, bimodal , pace layers and cloud , and organizational design becomes even more challenging. Application organizations are not stand-alone entities.

Don’t kludge serverless cloud applications

David Linthicum

Once we remove some core steps from application development (such as having to provision cloud resources like storage and compute) developers take this freedom to an illogical yet understandable conclusion. Considering that serverless is self-provisioning, and applications can be designed and built dynamically on the fly, and if we’re not doing infrastructure planning, well, why not? [ It’s a funny business.

Fix your applications before migrating them to the cloud

David Linthicum

These days, enterprises are moving massive numbers of applications to the cloud in a process called "lift and shift." The trouble with this approach is that many -- and I mean many -- enterprise applications need a whole lot of improvements to work well in the cloud. They are not properly designed for the cloud (the data is too coupled with the logic), there are systemic performance problems, their security is lacking.
