Any modernization journey starts with visibility – knowing what’s out there, and AppDimensions can continuously Discover all your apps, infrastructure, clouds using an unique agentless approach and builds a comprehensive and active model of the disparate and complex nature of target environments. This forms the foundational application intelligence which AppDimensions then leverages to address key use cases like cloud migration Assessment, security assessment, compliance audits, application governance, application portability and application modernization.
AppDimensions uses agentless model and takes a holistic cross-layer approach in discovering full stack consisting of applications, application infrastructure, hosts, containers, VMs, bare metal servers and the underlying infrastructure to deliver deep intelligence on a continuous basis. Leveraging the deep intelligence delivered through discovery, enterprises can use the extensible SDK and/or readily available plugins to perform the assessments required to develop a clear understanding of the readiness and gaps to execute successful modernization initiatives.
Every enterprise has quantifiable business and operations objectives like revenue growth, cost control, profitability, customer satisfaction and these objectives are translated to AppDimensions Outcomes by customers and must be met by applications and digital initiatives at target environment. Each outcome consists of a set of application aspects, called Dimensions, and set of rules, called Insights that the governed entities strive to meet. Many business and operational outcomes are provided out of the box and partners can develop new custom Outcomes and monetize through market place.
AppDimensions then Governs the target environments using extensive data collection, BigData Analytics capabilities and reports the extent to which governed entities meet the defined outcomes with a quantitative and an objective number - Governance score. AppDimensions will also provide a control mechanism to automatically or manually remediate offending entities to make them comply with outcomes.
Once Applications get to discover and govern for some observation learning period, AppDimensions employs machine learning, deep learning and predictive analytics capabilities to maximize the value and deliver optimized outcomes consistently through the target environments. Specifically, AppDimensions establishes a baseline after learning period and Predicts negative outcomes before they happen. AppDimensions also predicts negative outcomes before they happen and recommends preventive measures.
