Cloud Readiness Assessment

Quickly assess your application landscape for cloud readiness, migration risk, and cloud value, and decide on the right 6R migration strategies.

Are your applications cloud-ready?

Cloud readiness assessment helps you determine whether an application can be easily moved to the cloud, or if it requires a longer transition period and effort.

The challenges of cloud readiness assessment

For each application, you must assess its readiness for cloud migration, but you also need to define a migration strategy and a migration timing. In the context of a large-scale transformation project, this is often a complex and labour intensive task.

Assess each application faster and prioritize your migration efforts

Txture helps you streamline the assessment of all your applications. Once you have collected data about your applications, all you need to do is define your migration strategy and preferences, using Txture’s set of configurable rules. The platform will directly define, for each application:
  • Its cloud readiness, risk and migration value
  • A relevant migration strategy, based on the 6R framework
  • A proper migration timing
This automated recommendation system helps you make faster and more accurate migration decisions.

Features

Data completeness check

For each application, Txture calculates the completeness of your collected data and warns you if the information available is not complete enough to perform an accurate application assessment or target architecture recommendation. Easily spot applications where data is missing, take action to fill data gaps, and minimize the risk of making bad decisions.

Cloud readiness calculation

Based on all collected data about the as-is IT landscape and a set of more than 80 configurable assessment rules for automated analyses, Txture calculates a cloud readiness score for your application. It helps you plan your migration efforts, identify potential quick wins, and spot areas of complexity that might require a more detailed look. This way, you can come up with an efficient plan to save time during the migration and keep all stakeholders aligned!

Cloud Risk and Business Value

Based on the results of the cloud readiness analysis, Txture also assesses the risks and benefits of migrating each application to the cloud. This helps you identify applications with high cloud business value (e.g., increased performance, increased agility, etc.) for better prioritization of your cloud migration roadmap. Minimize risk with automated alerts of potential data breaches, availability issues, etc.

6R migration recommendations

Based on the collected data and Txture’s assessment framework, each application is analyzed and a migration strategy is recommended (based on the 6Rs model).This automated recommendation system helps you save time by faster identifying the relevant migration strategy. Gain more confidence in your migration decision as you know the cloud strategy was defined on the basis of a thorough application assessment.

Per application cloud provider recommendation

Based on your selection of preferred cloud providers for your transformation project, Txture recommends suitable cloud products for each application. If one application is already deployed with a specific provider (or is planned to be deployed), Txture will highlight this. It would likely make sense to also move other applications that communicate with the existing cloud application to the same provider. Enjoy a faster comparison of the migration options offered by your preferred cloud providers and choose the migration option that best fits your strategy with more confidence.

Migration timing

Based on the application assessment (benefits of moving to the cloud, migration complexity, etc.), Txture recommends a migration timing for each application, from short-term to long-term. Increase speed and productivity by better organizing your migration efforts.
