PALO ALTO, Calif., May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — vFunctionthe first and only platform to apply AI to application modernization, today announces the availability of the vFunction Evaluation Center, a product that uses AI to accurately calculate the effect of technical debt on applications, their negative impact on innovation, predict the benefits of refactoring, and then integrate seamlessly into an automated refactoring platform . Enterprises can now identify the most egregious innovation killers in their application fleet, create more accurate and impactful business cases for modernizing complex applications, and increase the success rate of their application modernization projects.
the superior inhibitor With the speed of innovation in today’s organizations comes the debilitating cost and technical debt burden in large and complex applications. Current manual valuation approaches are slow, extremely complex, expensive, and often fail to deliver positive business results. In order to increase the speed of innovation and scalability, enterprises must address and eliminate the technical debt accumulated in their application fleet head-on. But, understanding the true cost of technical debt and building a business case for modernization is difficult for most companies today. To solve this problem, companies must be able to accurately assess and measure the negative impact of technical debt on their ability to innovate, compete and scale.
vFunction Evaluation Center Overview
The new vFunction evaluation hub, which seamlessly integrates with vFunction modernization center, is the first modernization assessment solution to analyze the technical debt of a company’s legacy applications, precisely identify the source(s) of this debt and measure its negative impact on innovation. The AI-based solution measures application complexity based on code modularity and dependency tangles, measures the risk of stability-impacting changes based on the depth and length of dependency chains, then aggregates them to assess the overall level of technical debt. It then assesses debt, risk, and complexity against the organization’s legacy, while identifying aging executives that may pose future security and licensing risks.
With too many of today’s assessment projects mired in complexity, risk, fatigue, and impracticality, vFunction Assessment Hub enables companies with a large application portfolio to identify and accurately prioritize which applications to modernize, build an actionable roadmap for refactoring, and create a compelling solution. business case for modernization that increases speed of innovation, scalability and reduces costs. vFunction Assessment Hub is the first assessment solution that leads directly to refactoring, rearchitecting, and rewriting applications with the vFunction modernization platform. vFunction’s AI-powered, data-driven approach to application modernization equates to higher quality, accurate results and more actionable conclusions than the manual approaches that exist today.
“Technical debt and innovation are two sides of the same TCO coin – and debt has the opposite effect on innovation – you can’t address one without addressing the other,” said Moti Rafalin , CEO and co-founder of vFunction. “Traditionally, application modernization has been risky, expensive and slow, but it doesn’t have to be. Our top priority is to provide customers and partners with a powerful, automated, and low-cost assessment solution that helps democratize the way legacy application assessment, planning, and modernization is handled today.
“Given the complexity and interdependence of today’s multi-tiered application fleets, CIOs and technology leaders need to prioritize their modernization efforts before they start pulling at threads that can unravel more complexity” , said Jason English, principal analyst at Intellyx. “The vFunction Assessment Hub provides an entry point to assess the ROI of decomposing legacy monoliths and decoupling dependencies, so that refactoring efforts can be better aligned with business goals.”
“As people look to migrate to the cloud, monolithic ‘lift and move’ applications just aren’t enough,” said Steven Dickens, principal analyst, Futurum Research. “This vFunction announcement, which focuses on features that make it easier for development teams to analyze and assess the task of migrating applications to a cloud-native microservices architecture hosted on the public cloud, is much needed at this time.
The vFunction Evaluation Hub, offered in 10-app bundles and priced lower than less functional automated static code analysis tools, is now available for enterprises, on AWS Marketplace and through vFunction partnerships with leading system integrators and cloud providers.
