vFunction Launches AI-based Modernization Assessment Solution

vFunction, a platform that applies AI to application modernization, today announces the availability of the vFunction Assessment Hub, a product that uses AI to calculate the effect of technical debt across applications, their negative impact on innovation, predict the benefits of refactoring and then integrate into an automated refactoring platform.

Companies now can identify the most egregious innovation killers in their application estate, build more accurate and impactful business cases to modernize complex apps, and increase the success rate of their application modernization projects.

The top inhibitor to innovation velocity in organizations today is the debilitating cost and load of technical debt in large and complex applications. Manual assessment approaches are slow, overwhelmingly complex, cost, and often fail to deliver positive business results.

To increase innovation velocity and scalability, companies may want to address and eliminate accumulated technical debt across their application estate head-on. But, understanding the actual cost of technical debt and building a business case for modernization is elusive to most enterprises today. To address this, companies may want to be able to assess and measure the negative impact that technical debt has on the ability to innovate, compete, and scale.

The vFunction Assessment Hub, which integrates seamlessly with the vFunction Modernization Hub, is a modernization assessment solution that will analyze the technical debt of a company’s legacy applications, accurately identify the source(s) of that debt, and measure its negative impact on innovation.

The AI-powered solution measures app complexity based on code modularity and dependency entanglements measures the risk of changes impacting stability based on the depth and length of the dependency chains and then aggregates these to assess the overall technical debt level.

It then benchmarks debt, risk, and complexity against the organization’s own estate, while identifying aging frameworks that could pose future security and licensing risks.

With too many of today’s assessment projects mired in complexity, risk, fatigue and impracticality, vFunction Assessment Hub allows enterprises with a broad portfolio of applications to identify and prioritize which apps to modernize, construct an actionable roadmap for refactoring and build a compelling business case for modernization that increases innovation velocity, scalability and lowers costs.

vFunction Assessment Hub leads to refactoring, re-architecting and rewriting applications with the vFunction Modernization Platform. vFunction’s AI-powered, data-driven approach to app modernization equates to accurate higher quality results and more actionable conclusions than manual approaches.

The vFunction Assessment Hub, packaged in 10-application packs and priced below less functional automated static code analysis tools, is available for enterprises, in the AWS Marketplace and through vFunction partnerships with systems integrators and cloud providers.
