Migrating legacy apps to the Cloud


CIMTrek smooths the path to Cloud Computing

An intelligent solution that provides the tools to migrate legacy applications to Cloud platforms has been developed and launched by industry veteran, Jon Pyke.

ebizQ received the following:

CIMTrek is a new international software company based in the UK, which has been established to provide the tools that help end user organizations understand the magnitude of the migration journey.

The new venture has developed the tools that can migrate legacy applications such as IBM’s Lotus Notes to cloud platforms. The company also provides cloud platforms that mirror closely the way existing applications work.

Jon Pyke, founder of CIMTrek, stated “Cloud computing is not a new technology or architecture or methodology. But it is a new “delivery model” where all computing and networking resources are delivered as “services” that are elastic (use as much or as little as you need at any given time), massively scalable, and are available on-demand with self-service, pay-as-you-go variable cost subscriptions. While this is an attractive model many organizations are holding back on a migration path over concerns about legacy applications.”

“CIMTrek removes that barrier by providing the tools to discovering what applications your organization has and what can be migrated. Users can then define which apps they want and then in one simple click can migrate all identified applications. At this stage we have focused on IBM Lotus Notes which has over 600,000 users here in the UK alone,” he added. “The beauty of CIMTrek is that it makes no assumptions as to how you do business. We don’t ask that you change your modus operandi. We won’t ask you to buy any software!”

Founded by Jon Pyke who has had many years of involvement in developing and selling enterprise solutions giving him the knowledge to develop a completely new and unique approach to delivering solutions in what’s now called “the cloud”.

An international team is already in place with a number of business partners in the USA, South Africa, Australia and The Netherlands.

Jon added: “Research conducted by Brocade has indicated that 60% of organizations expect to have started the planning and migration to a distributed – or Cloud – computing model within the next two years. CIMTrek is therefore ideally placed to assist in this process.”

The Brocade research also identified that the key business drivers for doing so are to reduce cost (30%), improve business efficiency (21% and enhance business agility (16%).

Recent research from analyst firm IDC has identified that Cloud IT services are currently worth £10.7bn globally, a figure that is estimated to grow to around £27bn in 2013.

Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
