DMAP Copilot: Data & App Modernization Assessment

Newt Global Consulting, LLC

Assessment Made Simple. Get TCO/ROI Insights and Migration Blueprint Effortlessly with GenAI & GitHub Copilot integration.

Newt Global’s Data Modernization Acceleration Platform (DMAP) is an enterprise grade best in class customizable platform, powered with the machine learning capabilities of GenAI & GitHub Copilot to facilitate accelerated Oracle & Application migration and modernization to Azure PostgreSQL database leading to deep reduction in time and effort up to 80%. The analytics framework performs the automatic code analysis on both Oracle schema and application code. It combines this analysis with customer-provided insights on modernization demands and generates a cloud readiness report for each workload with recommendations for target Azure instances. Assessment outcomes of each workload are merged to generate a comprehensive view of TCO & ROI analysis and migration blueprint at portfolio level.

The manual analysis required for cloud modernization demands several months' worth of collaboration from different application teams, a task nearly impossible due to resource commitments to other pressing needs. DMAP automated assessment with its at scale feature achieves this objective within in 2 to 4 weeks’ timeframe. It evaluates numerous application and database workloads simultaneously with minimal engagement from customer resources. The cost of this assessment is only a fraction of what a manual assessment would require.
