What's New

1. (22-07-21) App Projects

We are happy to announce the release of our Projects feature! As your application portfolio grows in size, it can be difficult to keep track of where exactly each application is at in the migration process. By grouping applications into separate projects, you can easily track their assessment progress and report the projects' status, financial insights and other details to project managers or sponsors. Projects can also help you align the timelines and goals of an assessment and enable different teams to tackle separate parts of a cloud migration. Managing your journey to the cloud just got a whole lot easier!

What's New

1. (14-09-20) App Transition Type Recommendations

We’re proud to announce the launch of our recommendation feature! One of the first steps in the planning stage of your cloud migration is to choose a transition type, one of the 6 Rs, for each application. With a large portfolio, it can be difficult to know where to start. You might ask questions like “which of my apps are worth refactoring? Should I rehost or replatform this app?” Tidal’s recommendation engine can help point you in the right direction. Once you complete your assessment, our algorithm will recommend a transition type for each application.

2. (14-09-20) App Cloud Architecture Library

The new Cloud Architecture Gallery provides migration teams with a pick-list of architectures to choose from, which can be curated by a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) organization.

This feature allows your CCoE to manage a set of approved cloud patterns for migration teams to draw from, and more easily scale their migration factory to multiple teams.
