451 Research has released research on how firms are modernizing business systems. The study looked at survey responses on how organizations expect to upgrade apps to stay competitive, improve customer service, and increase operational efficiency. According to the poll, 38% of respondents intend to keep existing programs on-premises while embracing newer application architectures, while another 29% intend to restructure and re-architect apps utilizing modern architectures such as cloud-native frameworks. Manish Gupta, Vice President of Marketing, Java, and GraalVM at Oracle discussed the challenges and considerations of today’s application modernization journey in a recent Oracle webcast about how some firms tackle today’s application development challenges with Java.
Every organization has various goals that necessitate different transition strategies and resources. Some companies intend to keep apps running in their data centers to avoid rewriting those that are functional but may use a performance improvement. Others create new systems on-premises or in the cloud, utilizing newer architectural patterns such as microservices. However, every technique has disadvantages, such as:
- More money and resources are being spent to update existing applications.
- When migrating apps to the cloud or designing new cloud-native applications, developers must be trained to use new tools and processes.
The Java programming language has demonstrated its endurance in the app development field, is currently in its 27th year, and is well positioned to power future application development. With each release, Java continues to evolve and innovate, bringing features that improve the portability, adaptability, performance, and predictability required in today’s fast-paced environment.
Java’s original purpose was “write once, execute anywhere.” This makes Java applications portable and capable of running on a range of systems. It is also versatile, thanks in large part to a just-in-time (JIT) compiler that optimizes any size program for any hardware and workload as it warms up. However, in today’s digital economy, adaptability also includes the capacity to operate apps in the cloud. While architecting for cloud-native, developers create apps with many small components known as microservices that must warm up and execute at runtime.
Recent Java developments also allow developers to improve the performance of the JVM that is running code. Java SE Subscription now includes free access to GraalVM Enterprise for developers. This access includes the GraalVM Native Image functionality, which builds applications ahead of time (AOT), allowing programs to warm up before running. It builds compact, self-contained executables that don’t need to be warmed up and consume less memory. Microservices may grow to thousands of cores thanks to native executables, which reduce resource requirements and operational costs.
With all of these advantages, GraalVM Native Image is the best solution for modernizing Java applications on-premises or in the cloud. Java SE Subscription also gives enterprises the certainty they need to create high-quality software that works well and is backward compatible with current infrastructure. The subscription provides regular releases with new capabilities and performance enhancements.
Manish considers how every organization’s application modernization initiative is a journey rather than a destination. Organizations must determine how they want their organization to evolve, assess their appetite for business risk, and seek solutions that are long-lasting and innovative. Java advances the globe by allowing programs to adapt to today’s software requirements.
