Architecture Driven Modernization Best Practices Seminar: Modernizing Mission Critical Legacy Systems and Systems of Systems for Secure Cloud Computing

The Cloud is the most profound change to computing taking place in our decade but most organizations see no clear pathway for achieving Cloud enablement for their mission critical legacy. Why is the Cloud-enablement of enterprise legacy systems lagging so far behind when the benefits are so apparent? Join us Thursday afternoon to hear Philip Newcomb, CEO/Founder, The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) and Co-chair of the OMG Architecture Driven Modernization Task Force, directly address the challenges and opportunities organizations confront in migrating mission-critical legacy applications to the Cloud. This is a must-attend event for CIOs, CISOs, CTOs and other IT decision makers.

What is Architecture Driven Modernization?

A consensus has arisen on the best practices for modernizing legacy systems called Architecture-Driven Modernization (ADM). Defined by the Object Management Group (OMG)'s Architecture Driven Modernization Platform Task Force (ADM PTF), the ADM approach to legacy system modernization provides hands down the best practices and standards for facilitating legacy system modernization for cloud computing. By combining top-down model and rule-driven information system development with bottom-up reverse-engineering and automated software assurance, refactoring, transformation and documentation and enhancement of legacy system, ADM has emerged as the most rigorous and disciplined approach for software modernization. Mr Newcomb draws upon a wealth of experience guide you to successfully migrate of your applications to the Cloud.
Architecture Driven Modernization Approach: The ADM approach is characterized by practitioners who employ tool-intensive and standards-based approach that mechanizes many activities that formerly could only be accomplished by manual means. ADM practitioners are revolutionizing the software modernization industry with results that are as impressive as they are startling. Evidenced based studies (e.g. the highly-respected Standish group's 70,000 project data base) have shown that automated software modernization can produce ROIs exceeding 500% compared to manual rewrites. With studies showing annual reductions of 60% to 80% in Total Cost of Ownership, it is not surprising that the three-year to five-year ROIs of 2000% or better are becoming commonplace for knowledgeable practitioners of ADM.

Tools and Practices:

The choice of the right tools and methods and best practices and insight into how to employ them is critical to achieving these kinds of outcomes. For organizations looking for a way to reduce their burdensome O&M software and system operating costs, the ADM Seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to the extensive body of practice, theory and standards developed by the ADM TF. Armed with this knowledge, organizations seeking to systematically modernize their legacy systems can confidently undertake modernization projects, and even establish modernization centers of excellence to enable information system modernization to become a repeatable process.

Cyber Defense and Agile Acquisition

ADM is particularly relevant to federal and DoD IT acquisition for the following needs:

  • large percentage of critical legacy code in federal and DoD systems that require migration to the Cloud
  • improve reuse, and sharing legacy software and design knowledge over the life of a system,
  • requirement for legacy system modernization oversight by government technical warrant holders,
  • modernize legacy systems to run in cloud software and hardware platform environments,
  • enhance integration and interoperability performance of both new and legacy systems in a growing networked system-of-systems environment,
  • utilize system and software development trends / best practices, i.e., model-based system engineering, model-driven software development, and model-based analytics,
  • reliable automated and semi-automated legacy software modernization methods that are proven to save money and reduce the time required to deliver capability
  • reduce technical debt to reduce the total cost of ownership, reduce costs and improve system agility.
  • improve software system security to improve information system software assurance and reduce cyber risk
