Build your smart Cloud Migration Roadmap with Fact-Based Software Analytics

Highlight quickly and objectively assess your application portfolio for PaaS migration.  It automatically builds a migration strategy by identifying where to start, quick wins, and finding applications that will take longer to migrate.  Where a Cloud expert could spend weeks to measure the capability for a single application to move to PaaS, Highlight does it for a portfolio in days.

Spot software blockers that slow down your Cloud migration journey

Assess business drivers, technical enablers and maturity

Your CloudReady score is built from an investigation into different aspects of your applications and their business and organizational characteristics. Whether your application is a webapp or a back-end, your development team is DevOps or Waterfall, your Cloud migration could be drastically different. Learn where to improve.

Track your Cloud migration over time

Track cloud migration over time

Highlight tracks each application’s readiness for PaaS, both now and in the future.  See which applications are becoming more cloud-ready while targeting the applications that are going in the wrong direction. CAST Highlight lets you also figure out whether the trend is explained by code changes (new roadblocks introduced or new boosters implemented) or by application context changes (higher team maturity on cloud technologies, DevOps, continuous delivery, etc.).
