Businesses face several challenges in their migration of data and analytics workloads to cloud native platforms viz, lack of knowledge about the inner workings of mission critical workloads, fragility due to complex customization of proprietary code, tedious effort and quality issues with manual conversion of complex workloads, lack of predictability leading to cost and time risks etc.

In summary, their “xForm Insights” product addresses the lack of knowledge and visibility of the legacy systems and offers detailed insights about their inner workings, thus reducing the technical debt of the company, reducing the risk of migration of fragile but mission critical systems and prioritize the systems for migration based on their complexity and potential for optimization. Next, their flagship “xForm Accelerate” product offers automation driven acceleration in the migration of the complex legacy workloads in “Lift & Shift” mode as well as “xForm-Modernize” mode. While both modes migrate all code types across EDW, ETL and reporting to a cloud native outcome, the “xForm-Modernize” mode enables further optimization for lifelong cost-savings in future usage. Both “xForm Insights” and “xForm Accelerate” are offered as SaaS products with a simple and intuitive no-code UI with subscription licensing model, but can also be deployed to a private cloud, if you choose so.
