Modernization: The End Of Heavyweight Era
Why The Actor Model Matters for Cloud Infrastructure

About This White Paper
In a world where business models face constant disruption, digital business imperatives are driving architects and technology leaders to embrace modernization to remain competitive. However, traditional application monoliths running on Java EE middleware were not designed with development agility and cloud elasticity in mind, making them an ill-suited solution for today’s needs.
This report helps architects and technology leaders understand the business impact of modernizing with the actor model to build Reactive systems--systems that are purpose-built for the modern era of multicore cloud computing.
Download the PDF in order to learn more about why Java EE middleware is the wrong approach for today’s cloud-based infrastructures:
- Why Java middleware is a modernization mismatch that leads to low development velocity and infrequent releases, gives teams headaches when trying to scale, increases cloud expenses, and doesn’t natively support any streaming or Fast Data applications
- How shifting towards actor-based Reactive systems using the principles behind the Reactive Manifesto, Domain Driven Design (DDD), and utilizing actors for native distribution, concurrency, supervision, and resilience, will help you prioritize resilience before thinking about elastic scaling in the cloud.
- The benefits of modernizing with the Actor Model, including enhancing customer engagement with data-driven insights, unleashing innovation to protect or capture markets, improving agility and time to value, reducing compute costs while scaling elastically, and increasing developer happiness and productivity.
