Modernization strategies and assessments are crucial for organizations looking to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced business environment. These strategies help identify areas that need improvement and guide the implementation of new technologies and processes. Assessing the current state of the organization helps in understanding the gaps and challenges that need to be addressed. This enables the development of effective modernization strategies that align with the organization’s goals and objectives. By adopting modernization strategies and conducting regular assessments, organizations can ensure they are leveraging the latest innovations and optimizing their operations for success.
Technical debt refers to the additional work that needs to be done in the future due to quick and shortcuts in the development process. It is similar to financial debt, as it accumulates and needs to be paid back eventually. When software is developed hastily, without following best practices or taking the time to refactor, it often leads to maintenance issues and a higher cost in the long run. Addressing technical debt involves investing time and effort to improve the codebase, ensuring better quality, and reducing the risk of future issues. Technical debt in the IBM i environment refers to the accumulation of outdated or suboptimal code, configurations, and practices that hinder system performance and maintainability. Addressing technical debt involves identifying and prioritizing areas for improvement, implementing code refactoring, and adopting better development practices. By reducing technical debt, organizations can improve system stability, efficiency, and overall software quality in the IBM i environment.
Today, according to IBM application modernization refers primarily to transforming monolithic legacy applications into cloud applications built on microservices architecture. But what about tomorrow? Will these concepts still be actual? Modern apps in/from the IBM i environment are built with a user-centric approach, focusing on delivering real-time insights and personalized experiences. They also prioritize integration with existing systems and data sources, enabling seamless communication and smooth transitions across the entire IT landscape. Overall, a modern app reflects the evolving expectations and demands of users in the digital age. To allow such a state of the art we have tried to synthesize some principles, for the codebase, that should be omnipresent, with these “3 laws of softwaristics”
