Moving existing applications to a modern platform like IBM Cloud is a journey. IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service can facilitate the containerization of existing applications by providing an easy platform for the deployment and management of Docker containers. Taking those initial steps in the journey will enable future expansion of applications to include advanced analytics, AI, and other IBM Watson services.

With this solution you will learn how to take the first steps towards modernizing existing applications by:

  • lift and shift existing on premises applications to a container-based platform
  • manage applications using modern dev ops tools and techniques
  • leverage advanced services like chat-bots, tone analysis, and others to enhance existing applications
