Here’s what we discussed:

Most companies are building, automating and managing legacy core system integrations and connecting those to the cloud as part of “digital transformation”. Is it working?

Amazon has created painfully high customer expectations for digital products by building on top of legacy systems never designed for digital products. Inevitably some of these modernisation journeys fail because of accumulated technical debt, insufficient product planning, or both.
In this session, we explored legacy core system integrations and how to avoid the process and cultural roadblocks that can slow speed to market to a crawl. We also talked about the trap of treating digital transformation as a technology project rather than the business transformation project that it actually is.

Here is what we learned:

Suman Mokhamatam, Head of API & B2B, Ericcson

Ericcson is very deep into its integration patterns, so it has a sort of ESB event processing with an API layer. The hurdle is breaking the monoliths on top of it because they cannot do the microservice until the architecture is homegrown. Mokhamatam said they manage quite well with the heavy amount of traffic they have.

Mokhamatan said they are in that hybrid phase trying to simultaneously provide business service internally while trying to eliminate the legacy systems.

Hans-Christian Fuchs, Digital Architecture, Deutsche Telekom

Fuchs is an enterprise architect who has been focused on APIs and services.
Their basic strategies include building green fields with the newest technology where they can, modernizing what they cannot place on a new architecture, and getting rid of monolithic structures that no longer make sense.

They cannot get rid of everything because there is too much legacy data accumulated over years and many mergers that is not easily transferred. Because they also are a financial institution, a lot of data can never go to a public cloud, although they are considering a self-managed internal cloud for that data.
