Episode #26: Head-to-Head: Monolith vs. Microservices

Hugo Fragoso — Solutions Architect Manager, OutSystems
Arjan Waardenburg — Lead Solution Architect, OutSystems

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 this webinar to learn more about how you can leverage microservices and 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
