  • Cloud Vendor Evaluation

    Optilyze’s Vendor Evaluation service provides a detailed representation of various service provider capabilities in delivering cloud services. The details provided represent the research performed by independent analysts’ (Gartner, Forrester etc.) interaction with their clients, and the feedback and input provided by client personnel during the qualitative data collection effort performed by Optilyze on various client engagements.

    • Help our clients’ down-select a shorter list of providers that provide cloud services, support critical functions and business objectives related to these services.
    • Provide meaningful differentiation of each of these service providers in this increasingly commoditized market place. The differentiation is primarily based on the strength of strong current capabilities and vision.

    • A detailed report that identifies a list of Service Providers that offer key cloud services covering IaaS, PaaS, SaaS etc.
    • A document outlining the vision and capabilities of these Service Providers, especially in the emerging technologies and identifies a SWOT Analysis for adaptability within our clients data centers

  • Workload Migration

    For clients considering deploying applications into the cloud, our workload migration services help with the application migration. Typically, enterprises have hundreds of business applications acquired or developed in-house over many decades. Some have active development teams and up-to-date technology, and some are in proprietary languages and on “life support”. The effort of migrating this diverse mission-critical portfolio is complex and risky.

    The benefits of migrating applications to the cloud are many. The most important benefits are:

    • Better understanding and classification of the application portfolio leading to a more efficient shared services architecture
    • Cloud applications are easier to use, maintain, and integrate
    • Cloud applications can reduce infrastructure footprint with the use of commodity hardware, open source platforms, and multi-tenant architecture


    The migration process starts with defining a decision framework that helps with the selection of applications to migrate, profiling them to estimate refactoring effort and cost, defining migration methodology for developers to follow, building a migration tool kit, selecting refactoring vendors, and tightly managing the refactoring effort. We follow the following steps to ensure a success migration of applications to the cloud environments:

    Workload Profiling and Effort Estimation: This effort of workload profiling and estimating the migration complexity is based on current industry best practices and includes the Eclipse automated profilers depending on the client's environment and preferences. The deliverable of this offering is workload profiling & estimation toolkit and the customization of methodology.

    Estimation of refactoring effort: Each application is analyzed to determine “fit” for migration, profiled to identify risks, develop mitigation strategies and then estimated using the Eclipse automation software. Refactoring options are evaluated to enable trade-off decisions. Reports are provided at the application and portfolio levels.

    Application Migration Process: This service helps enormously reduce the refactoring costs by utilizing automated design patterns.

    Project Management Migration Framework: Our Project Management Migration Methodology is used for managing refactoring effort of in-house and outsourced teams. The methodology covers estimation of application refactoring effort, project planning, and tight tracking of progress. Automation is built to integrate estimation system with project management and time tracking systems to enable transparency and continuous feedback of actuals into the estimation engine.

    Program Management of Refactoring: is offered as an extension to client’s existing PMO. The service encompasses evaluation of outsourced refactoring partners, governance, project planning, and training developers.

  • Virtualization

  • Through Virtualization Services we help you develop a virtualization strategy that matches your business and IT needs. We design the solution. We can install the solution, train your staff and help you transition it into production. And we help you merge your virtualized environment into effective and efficient operations processes.

  • Unix to Linux Migration

  • Our Unix to Linux migration service is designed to help our clients’ need to meet the increasing demands being placed on IT by your business. This is accomplished by analyzing Migration opportunities in an IT infrastructure and their related organizational and systems management components, and designing a recommendation for consolidating your IT infrastructure based on Optilyze’s SyZyGy technology. These Migration opportunities are:

    Physical Migration – reducing the actual number of servers by replacing many small servers with fewer, more powerful servers or virtual systems

    Logical Migration -- consolidating multiple applications, application instances, and data to fewer server instances

    The objectives of the “Services” are:

    - Propose Linux-based “target state” for the in-scope IT workload
    - Assess the readiness to support the “target state”
    - Provide business case input to support the Migration investment
    - Propose a Migration implementation approach
    - Identify required IT transition initiatives to increase Migration success


    • A detailed project plan
    • A detailed assessment of the current environment
    • A detailed macro-level design for the migration
    • An operational readiness report
    • A detailed business case report
    • Transition plan report
