ICIV platform helps with cloud-readiness and non-functional validation on AWS cloud

Organizations are migrating application workloads onto cloud for efficient business operations. Cloud provides scalable computing resources, tight security standards, fast data back-up and restoration, and several other features. With many cloud service providers in the marketplace, it is essential to have a cloud-agnostic platform for cloud infrastructure validation. This is particularly important for organizations that grapple with:

  • Limited understanding of landscape complexity
  • Delayed delivery timelines due to inadequate testing
  • Incorrect or untested workload migration patterns owing to:
    • Incorrect set-up of foundation and landing zones
    • Automation tooling compatibility and integration issues
    • Absence of functional test scripts
    • Inability to meet performance expectations on cloud
    • Data model design issues
  • Vendor lock- in due to single cloud provider dependency

With the Infosys Cloud Infrastructure Validation (ICIV) platform, part of Infosys Cobalt, organizations can conduct cloud-readiness assessments and non-functional validation for cloud platform builds by making use of innovative technology that is plug-and-play with AWS. It is cloud-agnostic, cost effective, and uses the latest technology for automation testing. This platform combines various tools and reusable code under one umbrella to validate cloud platform for readiness check, monitoring, AI-based trends, predictions, and cloud security.
