Accelacloud Application Modernisation Assessment can help you bring legacy systems up to speed, future-proof applications, maximise ROI and take your business to the next level with minimal disruption to operations and your budget. Embrace digital transformation, increase velocity, and gain a competitive advantage with Accelacloud.

A comprehensive analysis of your IT landscape

What could your organisation achieve if it had less technical debt, improved efficiency, greater scalability and simpler maintenance? Unleash the full potential of your business by using our Application Modernisation Assessment to detect modernisation issues. Our full-scale analysis spans:

• 1,000+ applications: We can analyse thousands of applications using our custom reporting and analysis tooling.

• 40+ programming languages: Our tooling recognizes over 40 languages and can also understand applications on mainframes , providing insight into the programming languages your organization uses, how they’re changing, and what platforms those applications utilize.

• 7 functional areas: We provide insight for several functional areas, including application security (AppSec), complexity, compliance, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD), Infrastructure as Code, and more.

Our proprietary reporting and analysis tooling provides a complete picture of your modernisation needs and enables our experts to build a comprehensive modernization roadmap, giving you a clear path forward to success.

 

Our Approach

Simplify the modernisation of your legacy systems using our cutting-edge scanning technology.  Our experts will review the findings and create a customised roadmap tailored to your unique application portfolio, taking the stress off your development and operations teams.

Our assessment includes analysis of:

• Application age

• Application security

• Application complexity

• Container construction •

Git® and SVN repository analysis

• Hyper-V® and/or vCenter® mapping to cloud providers

• Kubernetes® configuration and security best practices

• Microservices decomposition analysis (symmetric analysis)

• Programming languages

• Modernisation supportability

• Team sizes and best modernisation resources

What’s Included

Our assessment includes analysis of: • Application age* • Application security • Application complexity • Cognitive analysis • Container construction • Git® and SVN repository analysis* • Hyper-V® mapping to cloud providers • Kubernetes® configuration and security best practices • Microservices decomposition analysis (symmetric analysis) • Programming languages • Modernization supportability* • Team sizes and best modernization resources* • vCenter® mapping to cloud providers

Deliverables

Using our custom reporting, we provide details on:

1. The six outcomes for modernisation per application, including:

• Refactor

• Rewrite

• Replatform

• Retire

• Rehost

• Retain

2. Modernisation complexity per application and trouble spots

3. Microservices decomposition candidates

4. Next steps for modernizing your applications

Assessment

CURRENT STATE

• Review of the current software license environment to determine if:

• The licenses you are paying for align with what is currently deployed.

• You are using current and supported versions of these licenses.

• Review of how software licenses map to technical capabilities and systems that fulfil those capabilities.

• What business applications do they support?

• What dependent applications are mandating that you have these licenses?

STRATEGIC

• Review of the current enterprise IT strategy as it relates to software entitlements roadmap.

• Investigation into what lifecycle events could affect the software licenses .

• Investigation into what changes to applications might bring the need for additional licenses.

• Identifying problem areas that should be addressed .

• Identifying unused features in the existing entitlement that could be repurposed for additional business value .

ROADMAP

• Review the lifecycle of business applications, dependent applications, and components.

• Review of different licensing approaches that could provide additional value .

• Develop an understanding of the functional or technical capability gaps that exist in the organisation.

Outcome

• Complete understanding of current state architecture, platforms, systems and applications.

• Report showing how software licenses are currently being used.

• Report showing how software licenses map to business applications.

• Report outlining strategic initiatives and how they will affect the current environment and software license deployment.

• Roadmap for the current software licenses, including the business application lifecycle and dependent applications and components.
