Many IT budgets are consumed by maintaining existing applications and resources, and getting out from under the weight of these existing applications can be daunting—schedule is king, and making time to address modernization comes at the expense of current business needs. However, as the business world moves into the digital space to prepare to meet the next generation of customers and to compete globally, organizations can’t manage their applications in the same way as they have in the past—they must take them to the next level. 

Cloud technologies provide many of the building blocks to help businesses achieve these goals and prepare themselves for the future. This white paper is a solution-agnostic resource to help you understand enterprise cloud modernization and migration and to help you decide which strategy is right for your business. Are your applications ready for the new tomorrow?

Improving Performance in Enterprise Web Applications

Zach Gardner Opinion, Programming

Every team that builds a large web application can generally pick from the following: delivering application functionality on time, with high quality, or high performance. Teams can pick one or two of the options, but they can’t pick all three.

Most teams opt to only focus on performance if and when it becomes a problem. This, unfortunately, can be far too late for some projects. Anyone who has been in the industry can empathize with both sides of the equation – choosing to defer performance concerns, as well as seeing the negative impact it can have on the success of the product as a whole.

It is a lesson I’ve learned from hard experience, so I want to make sure others can learn from my mistakes. In this post, I suggest a handful of principles that help to find a happy medium for delivering high-quality software applications while focusing on performance.

Significant improvements can be realized even if only one or two of the principles are applied. Applying all of them, of course, will produce the best results.

We have all been there: some new technology comes out and we know it would improve our maintainability. But we can’t use it. We already picked a technology, it is already implemented, and we can’t change it now. We are stuck.

TypeScript does not work like that. TypeScript is JavaScript, and JavaScript is TypeScript. What this means is any existing files you have are compatible with any new file you add.

So why waste time changing if it’s all the same anyway? TypeScript has some great advantages that JavaScript does not. In this blog I will introduce some of those advantages, as well as some troubleshooting tips for if you run into issues when you choose to convert to TypeScript…
