Tools for mapping applications
Enterprise application inventories have deteriorated over recent decades. As new applications, middleware, operating systems and hardware are deployed, incremental consolidation is often postponed or neglected in favor of the expediency of getting new capability operational.
This strategy has led to data centers that are increasingly difficult to update, modernize or move because the applications eventually interact in ways that are difficult to maintain.
How can this be fixed?
This paper outlines the problems and goals associated with consolidating applications and offers an approach to application discovery, analysis and migration management. Read on to learn about a three-phase automation approach that supports consolidation and migration projects.
