Gain insight and make better decisions about your applications.

Applications run your business – they define how you engage with customers, employees, and vendors. But how does IT decide which applications should move to which cloud, define new cloud-native apps to build, and know which applications should be modernized to meet business goals.

TDS experts and our TransitionManager software help IT gain insight into complex hybrid environments, better understand their apps, and create a business-aligned strategy across the app portfolio.

With insight into business and technical data about applications, better decisions can be made about cloud-readiness, the most efficient cloud adoption strategy, and the right schedule for migration.

  • Gain a deep understanding of applications and their dependencies with a visual, interactive map that spans hosting sites
  • Make informed decisions about which applications are cloud-ready and those which need to be retired, refactored, replatformed or rehosted.
  • Accelerate migrations for simpler, cloud-ready applications and workloads, and set aside the more detailed planning for the more complex migration initiatives.

App Portfolio Roadmap

Transformation projects succeed when based on a deep understanding of the relationships between applications and infrastructure and the business strategy for each. TDS’s App Portfolio Roadmap service brings tools and teams together to build a roadmap for your entire app portfolio. 

Our software platform, TransitionManager, provides IT and business teams with access to a visual, interactive app-centric map of your environment with one-click access to business and IT facts for every asset. We use this information to build a customized framework for your application rationalization and planning, so decisions will adapt to changing requirements, and you can accelerate transformation at scale.

Rapid Application Mapping

The first step in any IT project is gaining insight into your applications and their dependencies. But most IT teams must navigate multiple data sources, and combine spreadsheets with tribal knowledge to understand how their apps work.

How does IT determine which system of record is the most accurate? Which data points and dependencies are important and which are just noise?

And which one is most current?

TDS will import data from disparate IT systems, then aggregate, normalize, and consolidate it into a single view. Working with your team, we will incorporate critical business facts and provide you with access to an interactive map of your entire environment where you visually track how applications work, across hosting sites.
