Arc-Tern is Cognizant's easy-to-use, collaborative migration management and governance tool. Aligned with our in-house methodologies, it helps streamline and manage the migration process end to end and can support large projects involving physical, virtual and cloud-based hosts.
Arc-Tern acts as a “single pane of glass,” providing near-real-time status of all migration activities, including key risk items and bottlenecks. It standardizes and automates workflow management that includes alerts for activities scheduled and any delays.
Cognizant’s Container Deployment Platform (CDP) is a self-service platform that helps containerize and migrate applications to the cloud. Built on a serverless architecture, the platform is highly scalable and supports a wide range of application migration activities, enabling developers to migrate applications effortlessly and seamlessly.
