Solution

Optimize IT Cost Through Modernization

Package your legacy applications in a portable container to take advantage of modern infrastructure & the benefits they provide.

Your challenge

Organizations are aggressively looking to move legacy applications to the cloud in order to lower the total cost of ownership, increase agility, and decrease risk.

79% of these organizations believe this effort is hindering their digital transformation initiatives due to a lack of skill, a lack of budget, and outdated processes or tooling.

Legacy applications can cost any organization up to a 15% budget increase every year for maintenance. As a result, organizations are looking to overcome these skill, budget, and tooling challenges.

Organizations are lowering the barrier to entry by using Waratek's compliance and security solution Elevate. Elevate virtually upgrades your apps without code changes, downtime, or human capital.

Elevate is the only no-code legacy modernization solution known to increase performance without code changes. In other scenarios where performance cannot be improved, the overhead is less than 2% in production.

Waratek products used

I recall during the initial discussions of the solution, I was a bit skeptical of what I was hearing. Day one protection, easy installation, customizable rules etc. My skepticism quickly diminished. Our deployment was one of the easiest I’ve experienced, and we reaped the benefits of Day One protection the moment we turned it on.
