Tidal Migrations Platform: Feature Highlight of the Month
When you plan your cloud migration, knowing the value an application brings to the business is critical to the prioritization of which app(s) should be: Transformed to be more cloud native, Migrated to an Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Which app(s) should be repurchased.
In addition to capturing the technological aspects of each app in your portfolio, the interview feature empowers you with a holistic view of each app simplifying these prioritization decisions.
We capture the value to the business for each application utilizing a 15-20 minute interview with the app owner.
Pro tip: When looking at your entire portfolio of applications, rapidly search, sort and sum the values for all of your applications to better understand the overall business impact of your cloud migration program.
As always, we’re grateful for your product feedback and new feature ideas, so keep them coming at email@example.com.
