New offering minimizes risk with objective analysis of business goals and application portfolios
CAST Highlight, the ultra-rapid code-scanning SaaS platform, now includes a CloudReady Index to help CIOs make smarter decisions about cloud migration initiatives. The announcement was made at Cloud Expo in New York.
“Most CIOs recognise that cloud offers many benefits, but it’s not always clear what should be migrated to the cloud or if an application will even run properly once it’s migrated,” said Jeff Fraleigh, Global Head for CAST Highlight. “Our CloudReady Index surfaces objective data that helps CIOs make smart choices about when and how they should move functions to the cloud with minimal business disruption.”
There is no “one size fits all” for cloud migrations today, and organizations’ appetite for risk and ability to manage large-scale change projects varies considerably. The CloudReady Index de-risks and streamlines cloud migration in four ways:
- Prioritizes applications for migration based on technical requirements and business impact
- Alerts management teams to potential roadblocks that may cause delays or failures in production
- Identifies shortcuts to success, based on known technology roadblocks
- Tracks progress of migration efforts while simultaneously monitoring overall application health
The CloudReady Index supports digital transformation goals and enables continuous improvement with fact-based analytics for CIOs to drive modernisation in the smartest way.
