Question

Moving to ICP Cloud

Hi team,

We would like to know if we move to ICP cloud from IBM Websphere application server version(8.5) :

What is the pre requisite ?
What is the cost involved ?
Any addtional licences required ?
What is cost benefit once we move ?

Please note Currently we are using Pega 7.2.1

Thanks & Regards

Very broad questions indeed, but I think all of those you should start with IBM teams. You should be aware that it is a big change in terms of underlying technologies (ICP is designed for cloud native deployment, so your admins should be trained with new concepts such as Kubernetes, Docker, etc). As far as Pega is concerned as long as your pega container runs on a supported platform (e.g., Websphere - check the platform guide on the pega community site), it should work. Pega's own container deployment only supports tomcat at the moment. If you run ICP, you obviously need license from IBM in addition to Pega license.
