Track: Programming

Speaker
Paul Holland, Vice President, Advanced Application Modernization


Description
Many OpenVMS applications are mission critical and have been around for a long time. It may be a surprise, but software applications suffer from old age the way we humans do. Many OpenVMS applications are built on legacy software and database technologies. This presentation will discuss the strategies for re-architecting your OpenVMS applications into newer technologies, whether you stay on OpenVMS or move to an alternative platform. Topics covered in this presentation include: • Determining the real “age” of your applications • Understanding and mitigating the risks associated with software aging • Reversing the effects of software aging • OpenVMS application re-architecting
