How to start thinking about modernization with AWS

Companies are drawn to application modernization with benefits like flexibility, agility, and potential cost savings, but it’s a complicated process to get started.

Gathering data across all applications teams to assess workload modernization options, including rightsizing, containerization, and refactoring for cloud-native services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (EKS), is complex, laborious, and time consuming.

AWS, in collaboration with CAST Software, Cloudwiry, and Dynatrace, have found a way to automate this process and reduce it from months to just a few days, putting significant savings within reach—customers can reduce spend by 64%.1

Watch the recording to see how you can use intelligent automation that will cut through the complexity to understand baseline performance, identify blockers, and calculate the TCO for your apps before and after modernization.
