SHIFT™

Build Low, SHIFT High

Develop systems in commercial, unclassified environments and SHIFT them to the high-side

Commercial software is not designed to run in restricted and classified environments, where security must meet very strict standards. SHIFT is a SaaS/Paas emulation and testing platform that emulates isolated regions, air-gapped regions, and GovCloud. It provides detailed feedback on requests made within the platform, whether they will work in the target region, and information on how to remediate any issues. SHIFT, while still available on its own, is also offered as part of Altitude Managed Cloud™ for customers who need emulation. Originally created by Digital Age Experts, SHIFT joined Applied Insight's capabilities after the acquisition in late 2019.
