    Government talks about moving at the speed of business, but neither can match the speed of technology. How can agencies cost effectively modernize legacy, monolithic applications by taking advantage of private sector innovation? Microservices allow agencies to innovate without needing to completely refactor existing applications. When built on open source technologies, microservices enable the adoption of new technologies at scale, and maintain reliability and security without being locked-in to tomorrow’s legacy infrastructure. This session provides strategies and demonstrations of IBM’s microservices to help you modernize and futureproof your infrastructure.
