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.
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.
Segment & Prioritize an Application Portfolio.IN HOURS.
Automatically build an objective migration roadmap across an application portfolio in hours versus weeks. Segment and prioritize each application based on its Cloud Ready Index and its Business Impact to the organization.
Identify Quick Wins.BASED ON FACTS.
Automatically identify quick win applications that require less work to modernize for cloud and can be migrated first to gain confidence and credibility. Use objective, technical data coming directly from analysis of source code to ensure accuracy.
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.
Visualize App to App Dependencies.IN REAL TIME.
Automatically visualize application to application dependencies to uncover inter-application linkages that could break during a migration and avoid migration issues before a migration.
