Data Center Migration Assessment
Carefully consider the implications on IT, business & governance when moving to the cloud
For companies who are considering moving their data center to the cloud, but wonder if the cloud is ready for them.
- Technical assessment: We use automated tools to scan existing environments and determine what is there and how everything is connected. Afterwards, a code inspection is performed to determine how certain applications could be moved to the cloud and according to which model. Sometimes, we’ll need to upgrade applications to a newer version to make cloud migration possible. During this entire assessment process, we’re continuously looking for optimization opportunities. We then discuss our findings with the client and provide a cost and timing estimation for each scenario.
- Governance assessment: One of the effects of moving to the cloud is the elimination of traditional silos. Certain responsibilities may overlap, which can cause confusion. Companies should reorganize themselves and need to reconsider roles and responsibilities. Based on our research, we develop a ‘governance runbook’, that contains all the rules and agreements needed to keep the organization running smoothly.
