In the digital era, the cloud has become synonymous with business innovation and agility. As a leading services company specializing in cloud migrations, we understand the complexities and challenges that businesses face during this crucial transition. Our tailored cloud migration process ensures a smooth, secure, and efficient journey to the cloud, empowering your business to harness the full potential of cloud computing.
Initial Consultation and Assessment
Our journey begins with an in-depth consultation to understand your business objectives, IT infrastructure, and specific needs. This phase involves thoroughly assessing your current systems, workloads, and data to develop a clear roadmap for migration using tools like Application Discovery Service and Agentless Collector running on your on-prem servers. We identify key performance indicators (KPIs) and set realistic expectations to align the migration with your business goals.
Strategy and Planning
Based on the initial assessment, we craft a comprehensive migration strategy which includes Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reports, migration plan to outline the migration approach (AWS 7Rs), timeline, and resource allocation, and a Business Plan to seek funding approvals if required. These are done through a series of workshops which includes all the key stakeholders. We identify three representative workloads to be part of the Pilot migration.
Preparation is key to a successful migration. We work closely with your team to prepare your environment for the cloud. Our Cloud Enablement platform, qTOOLS, provides all the necessary foundation to create a standardized, highly secure multi-account cloud platform for your enterprise. More details here.
Working closely with your development teams, we prepare individual cloud deployment design and migration plans for the Pilot applications. Automation scripts are written to create cloud resources, instances, databases, etc. We work with dev, ops, and security teams to refine existing test cases for the new cloud environment. The migration plan includes details like data migration approach, final cutoff, etc.
Migration plan, Design templates, and Automation scripts are continuously updated based on our learning from the Pilot Migration. The migration Factory plan is developed to create a repeatable process to migrate the rest of the workloads.
Optimization and Support
Post-migration, our engagement doesn’t just end. We provide ongoing support and optimization services to ensure your cloud environment runs efficiently. This includes performance monitoring, cost optimization, and regular updates.
The cloud journey is continuous. We stay engaged to help you adapt and evolve with the changing technology landscape. Our continuous improvement approach involves regular reviews and updates to your cloud strategy, ensuring it remains aligned with your evolving business needs.
Migrating to the cloud is a significant step for any business. With our expert guidance and proven process, we make this journey as smooth and beneficial as possible. By choosing us as your cloud migration partner, you’re not just moving to the cloud but setting the stage for continued innovation, growth, and success in the digital age.
