Decisions on which applications to migrate are being made using gut instincts and subjective information causing unexpected roadblocks and migrations that are taking years to complete. And, if an organization does decide to invest the time to truly analyze their application readiness for migration to PaaS, it could take an architect weeks or even months to assess a single application.
*: QA Vector Research
CAST Highlight automatically analyzes application source code of an entire application portfolio to develop a fact-based roadmap to the cloud.
Organizations can rapidly segment and prioritize applications using the Cloud Ready Index** based on specific patterns found automatically in application source code that could prevent (Blockers) or accelerate (Boosters) cloud migration.
**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 Segment App Portfolios for Cloud Migration.
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.
Pinpoint Cloud Migration Blockers & Boosters.
BASED ON FACTS.
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.
Understand & Mitigate Open Source Risks.
IN REAL TIME.
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.
