Business context

Many organizations are looking to migrate their IT to cloud platforms in order to remove distractions from their core business objectives, to simplify their IT management and to increase the flexibility of their business models. In addition to the business process improvements that migrating to the cloud can offer, organizations expect to see cost savings from such a move with average savings in IT costs of around 20% reported. Whilst it is true that businesses Utilising cloud platforms have improved flexibility and lower cost of IT than those using traditional on-premises IT solutions, delivering these objectives requires a methodical approach and a good understanding of the IT and business processes in place.

Our solution

If moving to the cloud is to achieve the expected business benefits, then significant planning is required. This planning must include Organizational readiness, Application readiness, Infrastructure, and Identities readiness.

  • Creating an inventory of servers, databases, and storage in use.
  • Creating application dependency maps.
  • Cataloguing application technologies used.
  • Categorising applications and determining appropriate transition paths.
  • Assess migration workloads.
  • Determine high level migration plans.

The Expertware cloud readiness assessment ensures a deep understanding of each aspect of the client’s IT environment allowing a structured migration plan to be created that ensures the business goals and objectives can be attained.
