DiscoverNow delivers a rapid-analysis of the customer application and server estate. Using a combination of workshops and automated discovery tools, DiscoverNow collects and analyses data on the existing enterprise environment, capturing details of the critical infrastructure components, their performance data, and the inter-relationships between the components. The result is a comprehensive view of the production environment, application mappings, and costing base-metrics which provide a clean input to migration planning and execution.

DiscoverNow Method

  • Initial workshop to define scope of discovery and critical success factors
  • Agentless discovery service is rapidly deployed as a VM within the environment collecting:
    • CPU, Memory, and IO measurements based on 30-day averages
    • Application interdependency analytics and groupings
    • Server/virtual machine rightsizing analytics and recommendations
  • All data is collected upfront and outputs are used to form application groups and dependencies within the environment
  • Based on skilled analysis, we identify and create crucial inputs to migration planning and financial analysis activities
  • Analytics feed additional scope for Business Case/TCO Analysis for Target Cloud Alternatives (Optional)

DiscoverNow Value

  • DiscoverNow takes place over a 2 to 8 week period depending on scale of the environment and depth of discovery required
  • No dependency on CMDB or other legacy data sources, which can be updated and refreshed to actuals with DiscoverNow outputs
  • Mapping of application and service dependencies, resulting in creation of appropriate migration groups and quicker adoption of cloud services
  • Rigorous data analytics and presentation, providing clear insights to DiscoverNow outcomes
  • Independent benchmarking of projected end-state cloud compute costs, ensuring rational budgets for cloud adoption
