Automation, Monitoring and Analytics
Systems don’t get simpler. They get more complex. From the legacy days of monolithic systems, today’s consumers and stakeholders demand real-time access, and instant ‘on’ responsiveness.
A performance like that means increasing levels of complexity. Complexity means systems need to scale quickly, which means we need better automation.
Bottom line: TxMQ automation, monitoring and analytics solutions help you improve your operational efficiency, reduce labor costs and optimize work throughput across the enterprise. The result: Economies of scale for expansion to meet emerging markets and opportunities.
Migrations and Upgrades
TxMQ offers to work with our customers through IBM’s WebSphere Migration Toolkit. This is a set of tools that helps us with some critical components of the migration itself.
We work with our customers to identify the Java EE technologies used by their platform. Are there deprecated Java EE technologies? Will some/all/none of the applications run in cloud environments? What changes to applications will be needed for successful migration (if any). In truth, we spend a fair amount of time focusing on Java applications.
There are quick initial detailed analysis snapshots available using the binary scanner command line tool. This is ideal for quick evaluation, developers not using Eclipse based IDEs, and access to overview for any possible migration issues.
End of Life Support
Most enterprise organizations, at one point or another, find themselves running software that is either out of date, out of support or has been otherwise deprecated in some way. This may be by the vendor/publisher of the software, as in IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, or others. Perhaps it’s a homegrown application who’s developer or database administrator has retired or left the company.
Despite a company’s best efforts to stay version-current mitigating factors including resource constraints, application dependencies, and competing priorities put most large organizations in a place where back-level software is in production somewhere, sometimes.
This is a huge red flag for compliance folks. This is where TxMQ can help.
