Adaptivity(TM) Launches Blueprint4Cloud(TM) Platform
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Adaptivity, a leading provider of Software Accelerating IT Transformation, announced today the release of its Blueprint4Cloud(TM) platform, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that assists users in making the right cloud computing planning and design decisions. This new platform will allow customers considering cloud services to rapidly quantify the demands of their business applications and select the right cloud infrastructure solutions to support them.
“Today is a major milestone for Adaptivity” said Matt Barrington, President and COO of Adaptivity. “Our methodologies and software platforms have been providing immense value to our large enterprise partners and clients for years. With today’s launch of our Blueprint4Cloud platform we are now able to deliver our fact-based cloud decisoning analytic capabilities to a much broader audience at a very affordable price point. This software will allow companies of any size to successfully plan their transition to the cloud.”
Adaptivity’s Blueprint4Cloud platform was designed to help customers considering cloud services accelerate the development of their cloud strategy, planning, and migration activities while mitigating unnecessary risks associated with typical cloud initiatives. The platform leverages an intuitive workflow based user interface that steps the end-user through the process of evaluating the suitability of their application portfolio for potential cloud platform providers. The software accomplishes this by generating a Cloud-fit-index (CFI) score for each application, which is comprised of both technical attributes as well as business considerations. Once an application has been identified as a strong candidate for cloud deployment, the platform then steps the user through the process of determining the best cloud solution for their needs and drives the development of the optimal future state deployment architecture considering both public and private cloud solutions.
“The days of leveraging protracted services engagements to decide which applications to move to the cloud are fading into the past. In an era where cloud infrastructure can be deployed for use in minutes, businesses are less willing to spend months planning,” said Jason Noel, Adaptivity Vice President & Cloud Practice lead. “By leveraging our Blueprint4Cloud platform, cloud consumers and consultancies alike can drive to a quantifiable fact-based solution in a fraction of the time and cost of the traditional heavy lifting consulting approach.”
The initial release of Adaptivity’s Blueprint4Cloud software will help clients qualify applications for both Public and Private cloud solutions as well as design solutions for Amazon EC2, Rackspace Open Cloud, Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform, IBM Smart Cloud, Unisys Secure Private Cloud, and Nimbula Director Private cloud platforms. Adaptivity plans to rapidly add new features and additional cloud provider platforms in subsequent updates to the platform. Adaptivity is offering new users a seven-day free trial of Blueprint4Cloud.
