Up in the Cloud

One of the biggest trends we’ve seen in recent years is for organisations of all sizes to move their IT infrastructure in to ‘the cloud’. A move to the cloud can provide myriad benefits such as improved agility, increased efficiency and cost reductions, but a move to the cloud doesn’t suit every business and even when it does there isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

Objektum Modernization are proud to announce two indispensable tools for assessing your applications suitability for migration to the cloud; Cloud Explorer and Cloud Bridge.

Cloud Explorer 

Every application has a unique set of requirements and dependencies that need to be carefully considered before migrating into the cloud; no two businesses are the same, and no two applications are either.

We understand that successful migration into the cloud can only be achieved when you have the facts you need to make informed decisions. We know the crucial questions that must be answered in order to gather these facts about your existing application landscape. These questions must uncover things such as:
  • How do I gain a detailed understanding of how my existing applications work?
  • How do I migrate interdependent applications that have been implemented in diverse languages
  • How do I ensure functional equivalence in the target technology?
  • How to maximise reuse and maintainability?
  • What migration strategy best addresses my needs?

Answering these questions will ensure that you select the correct technology, strategy and architecture to mitigate risk and get the most out of the cloud.

Our Cloud Explorer has been specifically developed to automatically analyse your existing technology landscape and provide the answers you need.

Using our unique process, the Cloud Explorer automatically analyses your existing software and builds a comprehensive, navigable view of your applications.

The Cloud Explorer generates a model linked to use cases which document the prime capabilities of the existing system traced to their implementation. This provides a complete picture of your existing implementation.

Benefits Include:
  • Supports entire application landscapes including those implemented in multiple technologies and languages
  • Automatically identifies the suitability of an application for migration to the cloud
  • Intelligent report wizard allowing bespoke and pre-defined reports to be generated with ease.
  • Customised migration plans tailored to your specific application environment

Cloud Bridge

Migrating applications into the cloud is often a manual, time consuming error prone process. Our fully configurable Cloud Bridge addresses these issues and provides levels of automation you never thought possible. When developing the Cloud Bridge we had 5 key requirements in mind:

  • Provide automatic language to language translation
  • Translate applications implemented in multiple languages
  • Provide full traceability between your existing and migrated applications
  • Offer full data migration capability
  • Review and optimise your application design
The Cloud Bridge is supported by our well defined and documented three phase process which can be found on our website via the links below;

Benefits include:

  • Review and optimise your application design to fully leverage the benefits of running in the cloud
  • Automatic translation of GUI elements and layouts, ensure your new system is as easy to use as your existing system
  • Eliminates human error by fully automating your migration into the cloud
  • Reduce time, cost and manual effort needed to migrate into the cloud
  • Ensures functional equivalence between the existing and new systems by providing traceability between old application and new.
