Automated Assessment

The first step of any modernisation initiative, our Automated Assessment is performed using our automated tools to develop a complete understanding of the application, infrastructure, and operational components of a mainframe environment. It exposes mainframe artefacts that organisations did not know they had, relationships they did not realise existed, and assets that are no longer in use. An Assessment provides stakeholders with valuable insight to inform application modernisation decisions such as disposition strategies and target environment architectures. It also mitigates cost and risk by highlighting potential challenges and how to overcome them.

Why modernise to AWS?


Scarcity of domain expertise

Developers and database administrators who understand mainframe technology are reaching retirement age, resulting in a steadily diminishing talent pool. As this shortage grows, the costs and risks of relying on legacy languages and databases will continue to rise.

Limited flexibility

Companies are rapidly moving to modern environments and practices such as DevOps and AWS, while mainframes and the languages and databases that support them were not designed for modern IT, resulting in difficult integrations and limited flexibility.

Exorbitant costs

Mainframes cost as much as 4,500 per cent more to operate than equivalent AWS counterparts, a figure compounded by a scarcity of development resources and rising licensing and maintenance fees for ancillary mainframe utilities, applications, and databases.
