Uniquely delivering rapid, actionable insights
through machine learned forensic analysis

One of an organisations biggest assets is its custom legacy applications. Green Rain uses Machine Learning to automate manual discovery processes to deliver compelling evidence for change across the enterprise, helping customers make modular business and technical decisions at great speed, at scale and at a lower cost.

“Historically, the complexity of large, inter-connected and multi-vintage application ‘spaghetti’ has inhibited change. The proprietary Fedr8 system uses machine learning techniques to emulate how a human reads the code. Instead of taking several man-weeks of effort, the time required for the analysis is reduced to a few machine-hours. The fact that Fedr8 has been accepted by several large banks to drive Proofs of Concept at such an early stage of the company's development is a major endorsement of the Fedr8 solution”

How does the Green Rain suite of modules
help your business?

Cloud Ready

The unknowns of application Integration complexity is a major barrier to PaaS adoption, cloud adoption and application modernisation. Each application interacts with external services, databases and other critical touch points. To deliver the same or improved application functionality before and after Cloud migration and ensure business continuity, integration and application complexity must be understood. Green Rain is specifically designed to help our customers answer the following questions:

Which dependencies could stop me from migrating to a target cloud?
How long will refactoring take?
How much will it cost to refactor my application?
How cloud ready is my application?
What developer skills do I need?
How can I get a top level view across my entire estate?

Container Ready

In the last two years, companies have begun to embrace container technologies such as Docker, Red Hat and Kubernetes to help them standardize and streamline the way they package, deploy and manage code. Green Rain has been developed to help customers qualify whether an application and its code are appropriate for a container and help identify the supported Container Image. Green Rain helps customers answer the following critical questions:

What Languages make up my application?
What third party services does my application need?
What else does my application need to start up?
What OS-Level dependencies does my application have?
Is there a Docker or Redhat image available?
How can I get a top line view across my entire estate?

License Discover

Green Rain provides insights to help inform your licensed products and Open Source strategy by identifying licensed and unlicensed products and their entanglement within the genetics of your application.

Organisations routinely interface software licensed from one vendor with software from another or with their own custom legacy applications. Those organisations do not expect to have to pay any additional fees to enable the licensed software to be accessed by a program or cloud-based solution that interfaces with it. Sophisticated software companies often ensure their licences contain reporting and audit rights so they can detect excess usage and obtain additional fees. Green Rain enables our customers to confidently audit how third party licensed software is being indirectly used though APIs within their custom legacy application estate, helping drive a better understanding of possible risk and exposure.

Customers driving an Open Source Strategy now have the capability with Green Rain to align their legacy estate to the Open Source strategy and help reduce the cost and reliance on licensed enterprise software.

By using Green Rain our customers are currently able to confidently answer the following questions across over 1100 identified products:

Where do my legacy applications touch an Oracle License both direct and indirect?
Where do my legacy applications touch a SAP License both direct and indirect?
Where do my legacy applications touch an IBM License both direct and indirect?
Where do my legacy applications touch a Microsoft License both direct and indirect?
Where do my legacy applications touch a Salesforce License both direct and indirect?
How can I get a top level view of my legacy estate?

API Discover

Green Rain can identify existing API calls along with possible API opportunities for your legacy custom application. As application development shifts towards API driven component, interconnection and serverless, function based computing customers are looking to identify API integrations in order to build modular applications.

How do I find all API calls defined within my legacy applications?
How do I identify areas of code that take data in or display data out either machine to machine or machine to human?
How can I get a top line view across my entire estate?

Microservices Entanglement

By understanding the entanglement complexity within the blocks of code our customers are able to prioritise code block extraction and identify appropriate candidates for Micro Service. We also help customers quantify the cumulative costs for remediation. Once a candidate has been identified our customers can visualise the variables that reside within the genetic makeup of the custom legacy application. Green Rain helps customers to answer the following questions:

Could I unpick applications from existing platforms?
How do I visualise my micro service candidates?
How do I visually blueprint each application?
How complex is my application?
How entangled is my application?
Where are the costs for extracting code for Microservices?

Business impact of Application Discovery
with Green Rain

Informing decisions throughout the lifecycle of your applications

Green Rain has been developed over a number of years in consultation with industry and expert collaborators. We are the only organisation that uses complex machine learning to automate application discovery to understand an application construct at a genetic level, helping business automate their understand of the knowns and unknowns that reside within their legacy application estate.

Green Rain circumvents the limitations of a rule based system to expose not only the construct of an application, but the meaning and relationships embedded within the code allowing us to not only report on change, but also visualise and blueprint it in a way that has not been possible before.

How does Green Rain Work?


Mathematical legitimacy drives confidence

The analysis process involves processing the code through multiple proprietary analysis engines, which then creates a detailed analysis report of the uploaded application. To enhance the results and to ensure they are both meaningful and actionable, Green Rain uses a combination of supervised learning, augmented with unsupervised learning. This delivers ever increasing accuracy and completeness across the Green Rain Modules.

Driving excitement in the market

Don't just take our word for it!

“Fedr8 uses deep-dive source code analytics to improve the speed and quality of application migration to the cloud compared with traditional migration processes. This helps not just the initial migration, but also with continuous delivery of new application functionality, making it easier to maintain applications in the cloud than has been the case up to now. Fedr8 preserves and future-proofs enterprise application investments through its application analysis software”
