[December 7, 2020] – Astadia, the mainframe to cloud experts, announced today that they are offering their Modernization Assessment service as part of the launch of Professional Services in AWS Marketplace.

As a participant in the launch, Astadia is one of the first AWS Technology Partners to quote and contract services in AWS Marketplace to help customers modernize legacy workloads and migrate them to AWS.

Organizations face critical decisions about how to align existing legacy systems with their growing distributed environments. The introduction of web, mobile, and lightweight development platforms has highlighted the growing gap between traditional mainframe environments and the more modern, agile approaches available today. These legacy challenges are exacerbated by a declining pool of mainframe talent, high operating costs, and unnecessary complexity.

Astadia’s Modernization Assessment provides customers with a detailed roadmap for migrating IBM zSeries, Unisys, or other mainframe workloads to AWS Cloud, enabling organizations to make strategic decisions about legacy migration or modernization with clear visibility to estimated costs, potential savings, time frames, and risk.

Customers with legacy zSeries and Unisys systems rely on professional services from Astadia to migrate, support, and manage their legacy workloads in the AWS Cloud. Until now, AWS customers had to find and contract professional services outside of AWS Marketplace and could not identify software and associated services in a single procurement experience.

With professional services from Astadia available in AWS Marketplace, customers have a simplified way to purchase and be billed for both software and services in a centralized place. Customers can further streamline their purchase of professional services and software with standard contract terms to simplify and accelerate procurement cycles.

“Astadia is proud to be part of the launch of professional services in AWS Marketplace,” said Scott Silk, Chairman and CEO. “Our team is dedicated to helping organizations build a lasting platform for digital transformation by modernizing legacy systems. Now, our customers can access thousands of cloud software solutions and our associated services to help them implement and manage their workloads on AWS, from one centralized location, in AWS Marketplace.”
