SHIFT™ Migration Suite

Key Features of Next Pathway's SHIFT Migration Suite

  • SHIFT™ CRAWLER scans and catalogs legacy data sources, including ETL pipelines, scheduler jobs, and downstream consuming applications, to uncover actionable insights to plan your migration efficiently.

  • SHIFT™ ANALYZER assesses various legacy application code types to create inventories of all objects, define complexity, and provide automation rates in order to right-size your migration.
