Migrating on-premises applications and data to the cloud is a challenging process. There are many factors to consider, including the performance of applications in a new environment, latency issues, bandwidth constraints, and the management of your environment once it’s moved to the cloud. Also, after you decide to move to the cloud, it can be time-consuming to use traditional methods to design, develop, and deploy the infrastructure and move your data to the cloud. Cloud migration tools are a natural option to simplify this process. With cloud migration automation, moving to the cloud is easier than ever before. A variety of tools are now available to do the heavy lifting associated with cloud migration, helping companies increase their migration speed, reduce risks, and lower costs.
Organizations leveraging automation tools can increase the success rate of their cloud migration projects and realize faster time-to-value. Leveraging automation in your cloud migration process can drastically reduce the time and manual effort required for migrating enterprise applications, and can help you maintain the structure and integrity of migrated data. Cloud migration automation can help you avoid disruptions and costly overruns and deliver successful cloud migration projects on time.
Next Pathway is one such automated Cloud Migration Company. Recently named by The Globe and Mail as Canada’s hottest cloud start-up company, Next Pathway automates the end-to-end challenges its customers experience when migrating applications to the cloud. The company has developed its cloud migration technology with legacy EDWs like Teradata, Netezza, SQL Server, Greenplum, and Oracle specifically in mind and have solved for the end-to-end challenges organizations experience when moving from EDWs to the cloud. As a smart engine, it has the most up-to-date knowledge of your legacy code and target cloud targets. It can also build rules based on edge cases to address your custom requirements, fast. It offers secured and most reliable cloud migration services for enterprises.
Indigenously Built Cloud Migration Services Offered by Next Pathway
Automate Planning and Assessment Activities: The company leverage Crawler360™ to identify the workloads within the EDW environment that are migration candidates, in order to define the appropriate migration approach. Further, Crawler360™ will provide a lineage view for the data pipelines feeding the EDW, to develop the migration plan for repointing those pipelines to the cloud target. SHIFT™ ANALYZER will scan the EDW applications to identify the complete code inventory, complexity of objects and "x-factors" that will require custom solutions when moving to the cloud.
Automating Code Translation: SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR will automatically translate all SQL and Stored Procedure code, as well as proprietary functions to the target cloud platform syntax. Further, the team leverages a vast knowledge base of solutions to help address common EDW to cloud implementation scenarios. They'll get your legacy code 100 percent translated and QA-ready incredibly fast, so you can begin QA cycles immediately and with higher confidence. SHIFT™ Translator automates the translation of complex workloads when executing your migration to the cloud – including SQL, Stored Procedures, ETL, and various other code types – for various source and target platforms. Its syntax and semantic based translation capability allows for high-automation levels for all code types, including ETL, DDL/DML, Views/Materialized Views, Stored Procedures, Dynamic SQL, Embedded SQL, Scripting Frameworks, Proprietary Functions and more.
Managing and Accelerating Cut-Over: SHIFT™ TESTER will automate key aspects of code and data validation testing when completing the migration project, in order to accelerate end-to-end testing efforts. This ensures all translated code compiles and executes with the expected results in the cloud target. Crawler360™ will identify dependencies to downstream applications like BI or Analytics tools, in order to define the appropriate migration approach while identifying optimization and consolidation opportunities along the way. Manually translating your legacy code to your cloud target wastes your time, budget and resources. Accelerate your timeline, stay on-budget and get 100% UAT-ready code with end-to-end migration automation using SHIFT™.
