CIMTrek has announced the launch of an intelligent solution to provide tools to migrate legacy applications to cloud platforms.

Developed and launched by Jon Pyke, the new venture has developed the tools that can migrate legacy applications, such as IBM's Lotus Notes, to cloud platforms. The company also provides cloud platforms that mirror closely the way existing applications work.

Jon Pyke, founder of CIMTrek, said: “Cloud computing is not a new technology or architecture or methodology, but it is a new 'delivery model' where all computing and networking resources are delivered as 'services' that are elastic (use as much or as little as you need at any given time), massively scalable, and are available on-demand with self-service, pay-as-you-go variable cost subscriptions. While this is an attractive model many organisations are holding back on a migration path over concerns about legacy applications.

“CIMTrek removes that barrier by providing the tools to discovering what applications your organisation has and what can be migrated. Users can then define which applications they want and then in one simple click can migrate all identified applications.”
