What Is Cloud Adoption and Migration?

 
 

The speed, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of public cloud means that it is an invaluable enabler in any software innovation drive or digital transformation.

But many companies fall into the trap of treating it like they would a traditional data center, and fail to modernize their processes and implement the necessary automation. This fails to secure the promised benefits of the cloud.  

Our Cloud Migration and Adoption services helps enterprise organizations to avoid this trap and accelerate their journey to cloud innovation:

Your Cloud Strategy

 

We work with organizations to help them understand and devise a strategy for how they will make use of and deploy cloud services. This includes looking at the architectural, technical and governance issues, sometimes referred to as a cloud operating model. 

 

Readiness Assessment

 

This is a detailed assessment where we evaluate an organizations existing applications and software delivery processes with a view to helping them with their readiness to move to cloud.

 

First Cloud Connection

 

Establishing the foundations to ensure that the technology and processes are in place for a smooth transition to the cloud. This includes network connections, governance models, security, and key processes for managing the cloud.

 

Application Migration

 

A service where we migrate applications to the cloud with you, either a proof of concept or in a fully-managed fashion. This can take place with either cloud re-architecture to cloud native, or a lift-and-shift as a temporary measure.

 

Up-skilling and Coaching

 

Using the cloud is a new model for the typical enterprise IT function, so staff need to be trained and educated, ideally on the job, in how to use your cloud platform of choice in an optimal and secure way.  Our dual delivery and capability building approach has been successful with many large public cloud programs.  

 
 
 

Why Migrate to The Cloud?

The cloud is an enabler. It can reduce infrastructure costs, create the conditions for innovation at scale and shift the effots of IT teams towards creating business value, rather than putting out infrastructure fires. 

Any investments that are made will then be in assets or projects that are truly differentiating, rather than into non-differentiating commodity infrastructure and technology.

From whichever angle you take - cost, ease of access, maintenance, scalability, elasticity, versatility - the cloud is superior to on-premises.
