NEWBURYPORT, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- AgilePath Corporation, a leading IT management and technology consulting firm focused on Business Agility, Technology-Driven Transformation and Enterprise Governance, will host a webinar titled "Legacy Portfolio Modernization in the Age of Cloud Computing" on March 21 at 12 p.m. EDT. The webinar will be co-hosted by Eric Marks, AgilePath CEO and Dennis Bak, Senior Technical Architect.
This webinar will present AgilePath's SOLARCloud Playbook, a proven approach for assessing a legacy application portfolio to migrate appropriate legacy applications to the Cloud. The SOLARCloud Playbook features an innovative two-tiered portfolio analysis framework based on coarse-grained and fine-grained analysis techniques. The coarse-grained legacy portfolio analysis quickly identifies low risk Cloud migration candidates, such that enterprises can immediately harvest near term cost savings. A fine-grained analysis is applied to the remaining Cloud migration candidates to identify the appropriate legacy modernization strategies based on risk and business case factors.
"Legacy application portfolios are a persistent challenge for IT executives because, while they consume 70-80% of the IT budget, they also run the business," Marks said. "Modernizing or migrating legacy applications must be pursued with a full understanding of the risks associated with those legacy applications, and provide a realistic roadmap for pursuing the appropriate cloud migration and application modernization strategies. SOLARCloud provides a rapid and iterative approach for identifying legacy migration and modernization candidates, understanding the risks, and rapidly harvesting cost savings based on appropriate migration and modernization approaches," Marks said. "SOLARCloud typically generates at least 10 - 20X return on investment based on our client experiences."
Mr. Marks is an internationally recognized technology expert and author of six IT strategy books, most recently "Executives Guide to Cloud Computing" (Wiley 2010). Marks is a frequent speaker at industry events and has written hundreds of magazine columns and whitepapers on IT topics. Marks is regularly quoted by the industry press for his thought leadership approach and cutting-edge technologies expertise that have helped large commercial and federal enterprises leverage emerging technologies for competitive advantage.
