RiverMeadow Software - A Cloud Migration Company: "Accelerating Cloud Migration: Fast, Cost Effective Low Risk"
Whilst numerous Cloud Consulting Firms and Specialist Systems Integrators have emerged onto the market promising a seamless cloud transformation experience for their clients, the reality is that their business models are often misaligned with the goals and objectives of the businesses they serve. Large corporates and SMEs need to find fast, low risk ways of onboarding to the cloud, whereas those who claim the know-how often have little motivation for speed and adopt a ‘lets rebuild it from scratch’ approach which takes considerable time and puts pressure on the business case of why you are moving to the cloud in the first place.
Enter RiverMeadow. Based out of California, USA with a strong global presence, this fast-growing company is making big waves in the Cloud Migration market. Established exclusively to address the cloud migration problem, RiverMeadow offers a suite of end-to-end technology and services from Discovery and Assessment through Cloud Migration Execution to ongoing Optimization that allows enterprises and channel partners to adopt cloud faster and at considerably less risk and cost than any of its rivals.
With companies fast waking up to the notion that the longer it takes to transition to the cloud the greater the diminishing returns, RiverMeadow’s deep expertise and can-do approach is proving very successful. “We estimate that 60 percent of data center closures are eligible for Rehosting with another 15 percent requiring some form of light, but important, Replatforming which RiverMeadow has automated in our product. That implies that only 25 percent require true Refactoring,” states Jim Jordan, RiverMeadow’s CEO.
From a key features perspective, the Platform offers several distinct advantages. As an agentless and live migration solution, RiverMeadow allows you quickly and efficiently begin migrations - often within an hour - and create a clone of your workload in the target cloud without any production downtime until you are ready. When it comes to speed, low risk and first-time success RiverMeadow has built a rules engine with over 100 checks to verify that workloads will migrate successfully, alerting users to any issues that require attention.
“We believe that moving up the application stack and taking more of an application centric view of workload migrations will incrementally enhance value to customers and partners” - Jim Jordan, CEO, RiverMeadow Software Inc
“What we have focused on building is an extensible platform that provides partners and customers capability and flexibility”, states Michael Kent, RiverMeadow’s CTO. “What customers want is the ability to retire their technical debt as part of their cloud journey.”
With a greater emphasis on application centricity, RiverMeadow will be rolling out its application-specific workflows in the near term which will allow migration users greater flexibility in their cloud journey.
