Tarento’s AI based automated integration migration platform

Enterprises often acquire multiple integration platforms over time, through M&As, internal business unit mergers, or to meet specific past needs (e.g., EDI management, file transfers, event-based processing). With modern iPaaS solutions like SAP Integration Suite, Workato, and Mulesoft transforming core integration capabilities, there's growing awareness of the legacy systems that companies must maintain.

Discussions with CIOs and Platform Owners reveal surprising costs associated with recurring licenses, specific skills, and teams required to sustain legacy integration systems. Despite recognizing the benefits of consolidating the integration landscape, many are reluctant due to the challenges of migration or transformation, involving costs, efforts across business units, documentation development, and understanding dependencies.

Enter Tarento's AI-based automated integration migration platform, offering a solution to streamline this complex process.

Many to Many : Migrate from Any Platform to Any Platform

The focus on automating migration for SAP integration initially, with a fully automated approach for SAP PI and SAP PO, has resulted in potential savings of up to 70% in migration costs for customers. The solution is now extended to include automated discovery and accelerated migration of popular legacy middleware platforms like Webmethods and modern iPaaS like Mulesoft, taking another step toward assisting customers in their migration journey.

The automated process guarantees a minimum of 40% cost savings for customers, with ongoing enhancements, including AI capabilities, boosting automation accuracy significantly. Positioned to cater to a diverse global customer base and after discussions with CIOs, Integration Architects, SMEs, and analysts, the migration platform's vision is to be 'Many to Many,' aiming to automate migration regardless of the source and target platforms.
