App Think Tank: Legacy platforms and modern cloud systems

Today we conclude the mini-series of videos around the topic of application and software strategy.  Today’s segment features Barry Libenson, SVP and CIO at Safeway talking about legacy platforms vs. modern cloud-based systems like the loyalty platform they have implemented.  Take a listen as Barry talks about the differences between the two.

While it might not make sense to cloud-enable everything, when you’ve got a 20-year old mainframe system like Barry describes you’ll want to look to app modernization and moving to a standard and open architecture.

Stay tuned

Next week is the last topic culled from our App Think Tank: cloud and infrastructure thoughts.  You’ll want to tune in to see how CIOs and tech companies are viewing and thinking about these areas🙂
