Accelerated Application Modernization using CCAP

Application modernization through transformation choices on AWS and/or hybrid environments

Accelerated Application Modernization on AWS using Cognizant® Cloud Acceleration Platform (CCAP) offers a comprehensive solution for enterprises to effectively modernize their legacy applications to meet the demands of the future by making them agile, resilient, adaptable, secured, and cost effective to create new business value.

Cognizant’s approach to this transformation includes modernization at the infrastructure, platform, application layers through a mix of Cognizant frameworks, IPs that includes our flagship platform CCAP at the center of it and its plugin ecosystem. CCAP provides an end-to-end solution starting with the assessment and transformation of workloads, through deployment of applications on and off the cloud using native container orchestration services/platforms and interfaces that helps setup GitOps/DevOps pipelines.

Cloud Readiness Assessment
Automated assessment targeted for specific cloud platforms with detailed recommendations

Remediation Templates and Transform

Reusable templates to fix anti-patterns and framework level changes through blueprints

Container Deployment Plugin

Integration to the Container Deployment Platform Plugin (CDP) that streamlines deployment onto containers
Ease of Integration

Feature extensibility through plugin integrations to include 3rd-party tools/platforms/AWS services

  • How it works
    • Readiness Assessment: Landing zone assessment inclusive of DevOps pipelines, serverless computing models and micro services architecture with containers and cloud native. It deploys the assessment in a Kubernetes cluster but can also be run as a standalone application in the customers environment or on AWS.
    • Identifying anti-pattern: The assessment module includes a ML-based cross-check analysis of the code base against a data set of 1500+ anti-patterns.
    • Remediation templates: Reusable remediation templates that fixes anti-patterns identified by applying predefined parameterized changes to .Net, Java, and PHP based application.
    • Transformation Recipes: Enhance application functionalities through out-of-the-box recipes that includes wrapping struts applications with spring boot framework, transformation for applications running on WebPphere to name a few. Recipes can also be customized to target specific code transformations.
    • CI/CD Pipeline Integration: Automated integration with CI/CD pipeline to deploy applications on to multiple target platforms on AWS.
    • Container Deployment Plugin: CCAP provides a shared services platform using Cognizant CDP to deploy containerized applications on to AWS (Amazon EKS, Amazon ECS) and/or customer’s on-prem (Amazon EKS Anywhere, Amazon ECS Anywhere).
