Architecting new on old

From legacy to cloud

November 7th 2019, 6PM

L’Oscar | London

Mainframe and legacy databases remain the heartbeat for many organisations. At the same time, architects and developers are under pressure to build modern applications and IoT solutions on top of these robust yet inflexible infrastructures. Rip and replace is not always an option so how are companies solving this dilemma and what sacrifices have to be made – Performance? Scale? Security? Agility?

You are invited to an executive roundtable to hear success stories and lessons learned from peers who faced these very challenges. Perry Krug, Office of the CTO at Couchbase will talk through how real customers maintained their legacy infrastructure whilst offloading data using the Couchbase platform. You’ll learn how they leveraged next-generation data management technologies like NoSQL and Kafka to accelerate change programmes without making sacrifices or investing in costly migrations.

You will also hear from Citi and Experian who will explain why they moved from relational databases to NoSQL, how this transformed their ability to innovate, and the positive impact this had on customer experience.
