ARTIST Press Release Issue 3 now available online!
We are proud to announce the publishing of ARTIST Press Release Issue 3. Three years ago, ARTIST envisioned the creation of a tool-supported methodology to cloudify software applications. Now, three years later we can say that we have realized our vision. ARTIST has released an open source tool suite that guides software application vendors selling their applications following the license-based business model and with traditional n-tier architectures, in the process to make their applications cloud - compliant, multi-tenant, scalable, elastic and secure.

ARTIST short Paper "Cloud compliant applications: A reference framework to assess the maturity of software applications with respect to Cloud" will be presented at the IEEE 9th Symposium on the Maintenance and Evolution of Service-Oriented Systems and Cloud-Based Environments Conference (MESOCA 2015), which will be held in Bremen, Germany, on October 2nd 2015. The program of the conference is available.
