Agile Approaches to Legacy System Modernization

Robert W Baird & Co 777 East Wisconsin Avenue , Milwaukee, WI 53202 (map)

For our businesses to be truly agile, it's more than our teams that must be adaptable. Our IT systems need to be flexible, easy to extend, and quick to test and deploy. 

To accomplish this, our IT departments are pressured to migrate their systems to new technologies: modern UI frameworks, microservice architectures, containers, cloud deployments and DevOps.  Out with the old and in with the new - all without disrupting business operations.

This talk will explore the challenges of legacy system modernization, the extra skills teams need to tackle it, and patterns projects can follow to approach these large efforts in an agile way.
