Legacy enterprise applications, particularly those that aren't mission critical, often get overlooked during digital transformation initiatives. And that makes sense, to a degree, considering they don't deliver as much value as mission-critical legacy applications and net-new cloud-native apps. But there are real benefits, including better operational efficiency, to moving legacy apps to a modern runtime environment, such as Pivotal Container Service, or PKS. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Solstice's Mike Koleno joins Jeff and Dormain to discuss where to run your legacy applications in a cloud-native world.
