    Jay Graboff, Sr. Product Manager: Global Cloud Platforms, NTT
  • Panelist
    Chris Fuller, Principal Technology Strategist, Pure Storage
Application Modernization is a common feature of any digital transformation strategy. Common AppMon strategies generally range from Rehosting (sometimes referred to as lift and shift); Refactoring (rewriting underlying code to be more cloud native); and Replatforming (which is somewhere in between) to enable legacy applications to take full advantages of cloud native services and features. We will discuss the drivers and benefits of each and how you can determine which is the best approach for your organization, while sharing real-world client pain points, challenges, and outcomes.
