As enterprises navigate a high degree of change, IT teams are stretched across supporting existing services and driving innovation. But when it comes to delivering on new services like a mobile app or IoT, a common challenge is that the crown jewels of the enterprise, its data and systems, remain locked up in proprietary applications or in the brains of specialists.
In this hands-on demo and talk, we show how you can unlock the data in your proprietary applications and core systems. You'll see how to go beyond containerization by adding a restful API-layer to a dockerized legacy app, which can unlock its capabilities and data in a secure and managed way. Lastly, we also introduce the idea of an Application Network, its key guiding principles (discoverability, security, and manageability), and how it can help fuel innovation.
