AWS re:Invent 2020: Mainframe workloads’ fast track to agility

Mainframe workloads are typically large, tightly coupled monoliths. Enterprises may initially choose a rip and replace approach and manually rewrite cloud-native microservices.

Come learn about 12 agility attributes needed by mainframe workloads and how to quickly and incrementally evolve from a mainframe monolith to agile AWS services.
