Automate your cloud migration

More and more businesses today are looking at moving their applications to the cloud to leverage its many benefits:

  • Improved performance and responsiveness
  • Global access to support worldwide operations
  • Rapid scalability to support your evolving business needs
  • Improved resilience for critical business functions through automatic contingency and recovery planning
  • Reduced cost of infrastructure
  • React in a more agile manner to business challenges
  • Better overall user experience
  • Manage and allocate your resources more efficiently, freeing developers to add new capabilities
  • Improved data security

The business world is questioning ‘how can our business benefit from moving into the cloud, and how can this be achieved as effectively as possible?’ The process of managing and maintaining a migration into the cloud can be demanding and expensive in terms of the expertise and skills required. Whether your applications are modern or legacy, Cloud Bridge is an automated, transformation solution that provides the ability to translate and evolve your applications whilst preserving asset value.

Product Overview
How we can help

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

  • Review and optimise your application design
  • Provide automated language to language translation
  • Translate applications implemented in multiple languages
  • Provide full traceability between your existing and migrated applications
  • Offer full data migration capability
The Cloud Bridge is supported by our well defined and documented three phase process:
Phase 1
Analyse Application Source

Cloud Bridge is easily adapted to support any programming language.
Far more powerful than competitor parser technology, Cloud Bridge provides multi-language support, a modular language definition structure and the ability to understand language definition rules of any complexity, including those that would defy other parsers.

Cloud Bridge analyses your application source code and data directly to build a comprehensive and navigable UML model of your application landscape.

The model is now available for further analysis and optimisation.
Phase 2
Define Migration Strategy

By understanding the relationships between your application components and data sources, Cloud Bridge helps to determine which migration path is most favourable.

Indentifying the use of common libraries that are incompatible with the cloud enable you to plan an alternative solution. For instance, some networking libraries underperform in a cloud environment, and others make use of operating system specific interactions.

Phase 3
Automatic Code Translation

Using the migration strategy Cloud Bridge can now automatically generate into the target language / environment of your choice.

Cloud Bridge is capable of translating applications in any language. Application migration is only part of the full story; data migration is a key concern of any migration process.

Automatic data migration using the Legacy Data Bridge delivers peace of mind by preserving data integrity.

This iterative process is repeated until your entire application landscape has been successfully migrated.
