AWS recently granted Astadia their Mainframe Migration Competency status. This is a big win for our company because it recognizes that AWS customers can achieve transformational change when migrating to cloud with Astadia. It brings confidence to IT and business leaders planning their organizations mainframe-to-cloud journey in the added value that Astadia’s solution brings.

AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology Partners with deep industry experience and expertise. As a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), Astadia works with clients to reduce costs, increase organizational agility, and accelerate business results.

AWS Qualified Software

As part of our process in achieving the AWS Mainframe Migration Competency status, we subjected our FastTrack Factory software to the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR), successfully demonstrating that Astadia’s tools work seamlessly with AWS. The “Qualified Software” badge confirms the adoption of best practices to reduce risks around security, reliability, and operational excellence.

This achievement is also reflected in real-world success stories that attest to the quality and value of our mainframe-to-cloud migration capabilities. Astadia has repeatedly proven the value of our software and services with AWS clients like:

  • One of the world’s largest airlines, which reduced their annual system operating costs and achieved full functional equivalence to their migrated applications. Astadia helped this global carrier achieve a seamless cutover, with uninterrupted operations, and without extensive retraining.
  • A nationwide automotive retailer, which dramatically reduced their system operating costs, improved system performance, and smoothly transitioned to the AWS platform, setting the stage for accelerated digital transformation.
  • Meredith Corporation, a major magazine publisher, lowered their annual system operating costs by over 90%, increased the speed of operations, and reallocated resources to improve overall efficiency.

Using Astadia’s proprietary automation tools and deep experience with mainframe-to-cloud migration, Astadia helps customers quickly and safely move entire mainframe applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS). We offer automated code transformation to cloud-native target languages such as Java or C#, and automated migration to cloud-first relational databases like Amazon Aurora, and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (AmazonEKS) on a highly available, scalable, and secure AWS target architecture for mainframe workloads.

Reduced project cost and timeline

Astadia’s software tools deliver faster results at a significantly lower cost than competitors. Our FastTrack Migration Factory streamlines and orchestrates the processes of code transformation, data conversion, database migration, testing, and validation. Automated testing allows for multiple iterations without incurring additional costs. That instills confidence among project stakeholders, allowing for a clean cutover of both code and data to a new target system.

Key aspects of Astadia mainframe-to-AWS migration approach include:

  • 100% automated code and data conversion
  • Automated testing tools for both batch and online workloads
  • Fully integrated automated workflow—from analysis, conversion, and building to AWS deployment and in-situ automated testing of the new cloud application
