What Is Cloud Migration and Adoption?

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:

We work with organisations 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.

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

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.

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.

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 succesful with many large public cloud programmes.
