Next Pathway Advances Cloud Migration by Extending Capabilities to Translate More Legacy Sources

Next Pathway Inc., the Automated Cloud Migration company, is continuing to meet customer demand by making significant enhancements to its product line and expanding its strategic global partnerships.

Addressing pent-up demand to migrate to the cloud, Next Pathway has formed strategic partnerships with additional Global System Integrators (GSIs) to deliver a complete migration offering and has licensed SHIFT, its automated migration tool, to leading technology companies such as Informatica.

Underpinning all these operational developments is the continuous technical innovation to its cloud migration products:  Crawler360, the SHIFT Migration Suite, and SHIFT Tester.  

Enhanced capabilities of these products include:

  • The user interface for planning tool Crawler360 has been enriched to make it easier to see data relationships, dependencies and lineage across applications. Customers can now select which workloads are best suited to migrate to the cloud and which workloads are redundant and can be retired, or should remain on-prem.
  • ETL Migrations to Snowflake. Next Pathway has extended the capabilities of SHIFT to automatically migrate and run legacy ETLs natively in Snowflake using Snowpark. SHIFT can now migrate all legacy ETLs to any cloud-native language. 
  • SHIFT Tester. This newest version of SHIFT Tester has been re-engineered with enhanced data validation and test automation capabilities. Beyond verifying the translation of code, SHIFT Tester can now test data quality and ETLs.

By automating all the key phases in cloud migration—from planning to code translation to testing—Next Pathway eliminates many of the pain points associated with cloud migration, according to the vendor. Its technology enables companies to reduce the risk and time investment of moving their data and operations to the cloud, and to accelerate the entire cloud migration journey.

"Over the last 12 months we have seen remarkable interest in companies wanting to be more data-driven to meet customer expectations and sustain a competitive advantage," said Chetan Mathur, CEO of Next Pathway. "The move to the cloud is viewed as a strategic imperative to deliver business value. While moving to the cloud isn't easy, and migrations are complex, the end result can deliver so much value when done correctly."
