To help you evaluate the possibility of migrating to the Payara Platform, a migration assessment will determine the level of complexity, risk, and effort required. The assessment is split into 3 phases: 

1. Documenting Your Current Architecture 

Our consultants look at your existing technology, components, security, and use cases to gain a comprehensive view of your system.  

2. Creating an Outline Candidate Architecture 

Our team creates an outline candidate architecture to achieve the same functionality as your current architecture on the Payara Platform. 

3. Designing Your Migration Roadmap 

The creation of the migration roadmap details the steps required to move from your current architecture to the new architecture.
