ARTIST releases tools for migrating to the cloud

The EC co-funded project ARTIST after three years of research work is releasing a tool-supported method that facilitates the transformation and modernization of non-cloud software assets and business processes to the cloud.

Open-source cloud migration toolset released by the ARTIST project

In a hyper connected world, cloud computing offers new opportunities to software companies who want to release their applications as “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS). This decision will have technical, business and organizational implications. The migration can be challenging and costly without appropriate methods and tools.


Most legacy applications are unsuitable for running on the cloud due to a lack of scalability, security and compliance features. However, companies often cannot easily replace them as they are crucial to their performance, continuity and offering. Migrating to a cloud infrastructure can bring cost, performance and strategic advantages.
