A safer approach to application modernization and re-factoring for cloud

Modernizing critical applications is a high-stakes, high-anxiety affair for enterprise IT leaders, especially when looking at refactoring and shifting them to cloud. The lack of accurate knowledge of what’s inside the applications further exacerbates the challenge.

CGI, a global leader in IT and business consulting, is taking a safer approach. CGI is using software intelligence from CAST to help clients understand how best to take advantage of cloud and transform their critical applications easier and faster.

In this session, CGI and CAST experts share the approach and real-world examples.

Learn about:

  • Key challenges to be aware of when moving to cloud native.
  • Benefits of refactoring apps for PaaS vs rehosting to IaaS.
  • How to use software intelligence to de-risk and accelerate the transformation.
