The concept of “the cloud” is thrown around quite a bit nowadays. Companies offering cloud services boast relentlessly about how much money a cloud-based environment can save your organization. They promise more space, faster deployment times, and most importantly, lower costs. However, if you’re looking out for your company’s best interests, don’t you want to crunch the numbers yourself rather than taking someone at their word? We don’t blame you, which is why IBM has developed a new calculator tool that can help you quickly and easily determine the cost of your current on-premises environment and project the potential costs your company would incur if you moved your workload from on-premises over to—you guessed it—“the cloud.”
By answering straightforward questions identifying hardware, software and personnel costs, the tool can calculate a projection of the total cost of ownership (TCO) of moving your Java applications to a cloud-based environment.
Save money and keep the lights on
The ability to do more with less is a consistent requirement in today’s hyper competitive marketplace. In order to stay relevant, your organization needs to develop new, next-generation mobile, IoT and web applications without completely throwing your existing applications and infrastructure out the window. You need to leverage those existing resources in order to keep costs at a minimum. As you can imagine, this presents a significant challenge. How can you fund next-generation application projects while simultaneously managing to “keep the lights on?” Your answer lies with IBM WebSphere Application Server on Cloud.
IBM WebSphere on Cloud provides the ability create new mobile, IoT and web applications or enhance your existing applications with access to hundreds of Bluemix cloud services, including IBM Watson. It’s an easy transition to make as IBM WebSphere on Cloud offers the opportunity to lift and shift your existing Java applications to the cloud unchanged. Better yet, IBM has done the heavy lifting for you by providing platform management and a pre-configured operating system, middleware and runtime for IBM WebSphere Application Server.
