Accelerate IT Modernization with a Hybrid Low-Code Microservices Architecture
As government agencies ramp up their efforts to modernize and transform their legacy processes and systems, they need a sound engineering strategy that produces long-lasting scalable solutions. Low-code and Microservices, two popular approaches, offer unique and different advantages. Rather than forcing a binary decision to choose one over the other, how can agencies adopt a hybrid approach that integrates both architecture patterns and maximize benefits for their customers?
Outdated technologies, piles of paperwork, lengthy business processes, frustrated stakeholders, difficult to use systems, and complex government mandates are just a few reasons motivating federal agencies to modernize. Many government processes have adapted to the underlying IT systems, and consequentially over time, become brittle and inefficient. Agencies are trying to not only modernize their IT systems but fundamentally redefine their business processes and transform into a software and data-powered digital organization. To achieve these goals, agencies have embarked on combining Business Process Reengineering (BPR) with the most efficient technologies such as COTS, low-code / PaaS, or full custom development.
Low-code platforms such as Salesforce and Appian, offer the ability to quickly build and deploy applications on FedRAMP authorized cloud platforms. However, low-code platforms, on their own, may not always be able to address all of the business and technical requirements. In a lot of cases, some custom development and commodity services, such as document management are necessary. In these cases, a microservices-based architecture is ideal for achieving agility and scalability. Agencies have begun to embrace a hybrid approach integrating low-code and microservices architecture patterns to serve as the foundation for building next-generation systems.
The speakers will talk about their modernization journeys, low-code experiences, what works, what doesn’t, and why low-code hybrid solutions are needed for more large and complex modernization programs.
- Learn about the benefits offered by a combination of low-code and microservices.
- Identify modernization pitfalls to avoid when selecting technology solutions.
- Explore how to design and scale the Agile/DevOps process when building hybrid low-code solutions.
- Understand best practices in security and integration architecture with hybrid low-code and microservice architectures.
