What do we mean by “Cloud native” in the context of Eficode ROOT?

A traditional Eficode ROOT platform instance consists of hosted tools running in a private cloud, on-premise or public cloud environment, depending on the customer preference. Eficode is responsible for tool setup, availability monitoring, backups, updates and upgrades - among other things.

Cloud native tools, on the other hand, are hosted and managed by the tool vendor and run in a vendor provided environment. The tool vendor is responsible for tool availability and the necessary maintenance tasks. In other words, the tools are provided as SaaS directly by the tool vendor.

Cloud native tools can be part of a customer specific Eficode ROOT tool chain solution similarly to hosted tools. For cloud native tools, Eficode makes sure that vendor managed tools function well as part of the overall system. Instead of availability monitoring and tool maintenance, we focus on migrations and tool-to-tool integrations, and assist our clients with correct tool usage via Eficode ROOT helpdesk service.
