At VMware, we make use of modern development and site reliability engineering (SRE) practices on a regular basis. And those of us who work on the VMware Tanzu Observability product marketing team regularly get exposure to various SRE teams that implement modern practices with the observability technology we create.

Modern microservices-based applications bring with them a new set of challenges when it comes to operating at scale across multiple clouds. While the goal of most modernization projects is to increase the velocity at which business features are created, with this increased speed comes the need for a highly flexible, microservices-based architecture. The result is that the architectural convenience created on day 1 by developers turns into a challenge for site reliability engineers (SREs) on day 2.

A few months ago, we introduced a new messaging topology operator. As we noted in our announcement post, this new Operator—we use the upper-cased “Operator” to denote Kubernetes Operators vs. platform or service human operators—takes the concept of VMware Tanzu RabbitMQ infrastructure-as-code another step forward by allowing platform or service operators and developers to quickly create users, permissions, queues, and exchanges, as well as queue policies and parameters.

The agile transformation services market will grow at a compounded rate of 19.5 percent annually by 2026, according to Allied Market Research. The overall digital transformation services market, meanwhile, is estimated by Forbes to be worth trillions of dollars. Indeed, if we scroll through the annual reports of Fortune 500 companies over the last decade, many of them will detail going through some version of a digital transformation.

Modern application architectures are complex, typically consisting of hundreds of distributed microservices implemented in different languages and by different teams. As a developer, SRE, or DevOps engineer, you are responsible for the reliability and performance of these complex systems. But while you might have metrics that will help you debug when there’s an issue, metrics alone can’t help you narrow down and ultimately identify the root cause.

The world of retail has changed dramatically over the past decade, and in ways far beyond a black-and-white shift from shopping in stores to shopping online. Today, e-commerce is table stakes, meaning companies distinguish themselves—among other avenues—via user experience, promotions, fast shipping, and omnichannel experiences that integrate digital and brick-and-mortar locations.

Imagine that you are receiving a support ticket that your application is not working. You read the attached stack trace and now it's time to solve the mystery—what did the user do that led to triggering this exception? Is it possible to find all the logs from all the applications that correspond to this user's business operation? What if the user is complaining that the system is slow? How can you decide which concrete operation is the culprit? Is there any way to visualize the latency?

Why You Need Application Modernization Most developers work on existing applications (apps): products and services that have been built, maintained, and updated over long periods of time. Normally, these apps exist as a web of tightly coupled, sparsely documented systems.

It's common in talks about digital transformation to make fun of waterfall as a software delivery methodology, but that's not entirely fair. Waterfall works great if your requirements are unchanged, you understand your users and, as a result, you don't need to be highly adaptable to users' changing needs.

Modernizing Software Development to Improve Your Business. Wrapping your mind around what exactly "digital transformation" is-and, more importantly, what to do about it-can be difficult. In my experience, "digital" is a catch-all phrase for "doing new things with IT." That could mean anything from moving desktop management to virtual desktops, using SaaS more, or selling insurance policies and industrial solvents on Instagram.
