Legacy Meet Cloud

Challenge #3: Making Legacy Meet the Cloud Era

Development teams and business users may want to jump at all the latest tools, but operations simply can't. It isn't because they don't want to, though. Tools need to fit into an existing application ecosystem, and it's not easy to make legacy apps work well with modern tools. An added plus? There has been a major move to mobile devices, which are self-contained and voracious for enterprise-wide cloud services.

Meanwhile, the new hybrid environment includes on-premise tools, IaaS tools like Amazon, Google and Azure, PaaS compute services, and SaaS business applications. Get ready to become a matchmaker – 2015 will be all about making seemingly incompatible tools jive together to meet business needs.

DevOps and operations teams are always focused on problem solving. They are not only under increasing pressure from tech-savvy, app-centric business users to collaboratively solve challenging business problems with IT, but also trying to keep up with a rapidly changing landscape of tools, technologies, processes and adoption. So, as we head into 2015, it is important to take stock of all the potential new challenges ahead … as well as some ways to get ahead of them.

IT infrastructure used to be a service published to the rest of the organization – all new requests were made to and executed by the operations team. However, the process is becoming more democratized and collaborative. And while that is certainly a good thing for business, it shifts the dynamic and responsibilities considerably.

Luckily, knowing what is coming will help DevOps and operations teams better prepare to overcome it. In this slideshow, operations expert Dr. Trevor Parsons of Logentries explores the five challenges teams need to address – from cultural changes and shifting ownership to hybrid environment complications. He also shares steps to take now to overcome future challenges and save some headaches along the way.
