  • ARC-TERN

    MIGRATION GOVERNANCE TOOL

    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 delays, if any.

  • APR METHODOLOGY

    SIMPLIFY IT ARCHITECTURE

    Cognizant’s Applications Portfolio Rationalization (APR) methodology simplifies and synchronizes multiple disciplines, technologies, work streams and modules across large, complex applications and infrastructure. This industrialized approach enables high levels of automation by leveraging tools and frameworks. We carefully consider numerous factors, including business criticality and value of the IT product, the currency and relevancy of the technology, the cost of maintaining the product and more.

  • BLUEPRINTS

    70+ REUSABLE ACCELERATORS

    Cognizant offers more than 70 reusable blueprints that can be used to accelerate cloud migration. Examples of these include blueprints for high availability/disaster recovery (DR), automation and back/recovery.

    ZDLC can deliver up to 40% reductions in effort for as-is architecture discovery, process analysis and data lineage, as well as accelerate delivery through automation and improved quality, and drive down costs.

  • VALUE STREAM MAPPING (VSM)

    ARE YOUR APPS CLOUD-READY?

    VSM is an automated portfolio assessment tool for analyzing cloud readiness for Java and .NET applications. It analyzes hundreds of applications in minutes, then provides a comprehensive Cloud Readiness Assessment Report for each application. VSM also identifies common anti-patterns and provides remediation steps to migrate applications to a cloud-native platform.
