Deploying to Modern Architectures
Every organization has a unique approach to modernization. HCL Launch can provide value for your DevOps transformation, regardless of the maturity of your ecosystem.
Application Modernization is actually the modernization of three areas at once – your architecture, your infrastructure, and your delivery model. HCL Launch enables these three areas to coexist, even when they are in different stages of transformation, so you don’t have to slow down or delay improvement. Modernize your infrastructure with new tools while staying consistent with your delivery process. Enable your teams to add microservices where possible while maintaining the existing architecture. With the HCL Software DevOps suite of solutions, you can piece together the toolchain that best fits your transformation story.
