Today we conclude the mini-series of videos around the topic of application and software strategy. Today’s segment features Barry Libenson, SVP and CIO at Safeway talking about legacy platforms vs. modern cloud-based systems like the loyalty platform they have implemented. Take a listen as Barry talks about the differences between the two.
While it might not make sense to cloud-enable everything, when you’ve got a 20-year old mainframe system like Barry describes you’ll want to look to app modernization and moving to a standard and open architecture.
Next week is the last topic culled from our App Think Tank: cloud and infrastructure thoughts. You’ll want to tune in to see how CIOs and tech companies are viewing and thinking about these areas :-)
The Think Tank, Sessions one and two
- Think Tank Session 1- Welcome to the application-centric world – best practices in the ‘greenfield’
- Think tank Session 2- Nexus of forces – CIOs under pressure and the rise of the enterprise developer
Pau for now…
