Visualization of existing integration landscape to provide insights for Agile Integration Modernization

Many major clients are currently using the IBM SOA stack and would need assistance with modernization (a.k.a the new migration) to Cloud Pak for Integration (including Red Hat OpenShift). However it's not an easy task since some customers may have 100+ services across multiple layers. Having a solution that provides visualization of their current integration landscape and providing a transformation roadmap to the newer versions of the integration (Cloud Pak for Integration) would really help drive more insightful discussions and help steer our clients towards containerization and eventually OpenShift. Currently we have a transformation advisor, but that tool serves only purpose which is validating the effort to transform IIB services to ACE (to a certain extent as as-is component). Basically this solution can be used as a Sales Tool, to provide the insights and make appropriate decisions when target Agile Integration Architect. As of today the client is trying to perform this data analysis using MS Excel and some custom built macros.

    Hi Rubayat,

    Thanks for raising this idea - wanted to reach out for come clarification of exactly what you're asking for.

    You mentioned that the customer is currently using Excel and some macros for this.

    Are you looking for tooling that allows you to catalog the current environment in a GUI/Database sort of mode and then provide guidance based on that - or is this something more part of the runtime product that actually looks at what is running in the environment?
