QA Vector Research
Organizations moving applications to Cloud or optimizing them after a lift-and-shift, need to understand how well they can fit into a Cloud native, PaaS environment.
However, it takes weeks or even months for an architect to access just one application.
CAST Highlight reads source code, ‘understands’ what changes are needed for a move to a cloud environment, and automatically develops a fact-based roadmap to cloud.
Organizations can rapidly segment and prioritize applications using the Cloud Ready Index based on specific source code patterns that could prevent (Blockers) or accelerate (Boosters) the optimization for cloud.
Cloud Ready Index: A metric calculated by CAST Highlight on a scale of 0 – 100 that measures how ready an application is to be migrated to the cloud in a PaaS (Platform as a Service) state.
Automatically build an objective migration roadmap across an entire application portfolio in seconds using the Portfolio Advisor for Cloud. Segment and prioritize each application into categories such as Rehost, Refactor, Rearchitect, Rebuild, or Retire.
Automatically identify Blockers (e.g., Persistent File Usage, COM Components, etc.) and Boosters (e.g., use of a web configuration file, MySQL, etc.). Get accurate guidance on exactly where each of the Blockers occur within the code of each application. Learn how to remediate these Blockers before migration instead of using subjective estimates to ensure a more successful and faster migration.
Automatically discover specific source code patterns that prevent adoption of containers and get precise recommendations on how to remove these container blockers.
Get recommendations on the specific Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, or IBM Cloud native services for each application to utilize to help reduce consumption post lift-and-shift.
Automatically perform Software Composition Analysis (SCA) to detect all open source components in use throughout the portfolio and the associated risks. Identify security vulnerabilities, open source licensing risks, or obsolete components that need to be addressed or upgraded before a migration in minutes versus the weeks it would take using manual code reviews.
Receive automated insights on the specific cloud patterns in applications that make it easier to be deployed across multiple cloud platforms.
