The digital economy is expanding faster and faster due to the constant advances in IT. There is a virtuous circle such that, in turn, more and more (often unpredictable) innovative usages boost IT. These usages are social and, in a broad sense, economical, meaning that the impact of IT on business is nowadays immense.
This book presents a reflection on software modernization to align old information systems with current Internet-centric computing paradigms, mainly SOA and the Cloud, as well as highlighting popular middleware platforms, namely Java EE, .NET, Spring, etc.
In the first chapters, the authors address business and technical issues, before moving on to give practical insights into a ready-to-use method and tool in later chapters. Within this scope, this book comments on the BLU AGE® method and tool used in large-scale projects in the USA and in Europe for varied business domains: healthcare, retail, transportation, tourism, energy, manpower, government, etc.
