It was announced in 2021 that Lagom is no longer being developed, and will not get any new features, with only security updates to be expected. While this doesn’t mean Lagom is not going to be useful anymore, it will soon become a legacy technology with all the downsides that it entails;
If you decide that migrating from Lagom to Akka would be beneficial to your company and team, then the sooner you make the transition the better. The more features you develop for your current system, the longer the migration will take, and the riskier it will become.
Your business domain is the unique area of expertise that your in-house team has. It’s a very specific, and usually a non-repeatable form of knowledge. On the other hand, technology upgrades and migrations are independent of business knowledge and are repeatable processes.
Therefore, it is beneficial for your team to focus on bringing business value to the company while letting a specialized external team do the migration in a faster, cheaper and less risky way.
Experienced. Professional. Trusted. Our developers know both the Lagom and Akka platforms well and have already carried out such migrations in the past. We will help you plan and execute the migration with little or no disruption to your current development.
