Abstract

The modern enterprise organization, that builds and maintains custom software solutions, depends on aging IT systems and applications for day-to-day operations. Migrating these applications and systems into new technologies is expensive and time-consuming. This talk will explore not only how these systems can be brought forward into modern technologies, but also how these systems can be rearchitected to make future transitions cheaper, easier, and faster.

To accomplish these goals we need to redefine ‘software application’ to mean: an encapsulation of business logic; and build business logic layers than can have user interfaces and data access implementations bolted on and off whenever it is required. IT also needs to start talking to business about maintenance and upgrades before the first line of code is written. Understanding that software applications don’t last forever, just like an automobile, they require increasingly more maintenance the longer they stay in service.

The modern enterprise continues to endure serious security risks due to the inability to quickly retire and replace legacy systems. Implementing processes outlined in this research will mitigate this risk.

This sentence clearly describes the topic.

A public audience may not be familiar with this phrase. Can you define this term and/or give an example of a modern enterprise organization to make sure everyone understands? Also, how does this phrase relate the phrase used in your title? You may need to use consistent terms and/or define the term used in your title as well.

This sentence clearly describes the problem.

This sentence clearly describes the proposed solutions (bringing systems “forward” and “re-architecting”).
