Health Check Utility

Health Check Utility assesses the current state of APIs and based on clients’ inputs and internal scoring defined by framework, it helps organizations to understand how overall migration can be approached by knowing complexity and efforts required.

Evaluation

  • Know client’s business case & API needs
  • Understand features & capabilities that client uses & feed into the Health Check utility
  • Mark items that are in-scope for migration

Action

  • Rate the complexity of each in-scope items between 1-3
  • Give score between 1-3 for level of automation achieved to accelerate migration
  • Adjust the value of ‘multiplier’ based on no of APIs, environments to be built

Results

  • The utility will calculate the complexity score that helps customers immediately know about the level of migration required to move to newer platform
  • It also provides an indicative effort to understand the overall duration and cost of migration
  • Presents clear demarcation between easy to do tasks vs any risks/ blockers that needs attention
