Migrating to the cloud should be easy, even if your business has lots of moving parts. But there’s a right way and a wrong way to migrate. To help get things off the ground, we offer cloud migration workshops so you can get a clear path to business value and a personalised cloud migration plan. Before I tell you what the workshop includes, it may be helpful to answer the question “what is cloud migration?”.
As discussed before on the blog, when we talk about the “cloud” we often are talking about cloud computing. The cloud, while sounding mysterious, is a collection of computer services accessed remotely over the internet. There is no setup involved and access is instant with your data being stored in highly secure data centres across the globe. “Cloud migration” is when you move digital assets to the cloud. These assets include data, workloads, resources or applications.
While cloud migration often involves moving assets from legacy systems or on-premises servers, it can also include moving from one cloud service provider to another. During the DotModus: Cloud Migration Workshop, we will develop a personalised plan that best fits your business’s current and future needs. This can include re-platforming to take advantage of the cloud without changing anything or retiring old applications and replacing them with cloud-native ones.
The process of migrating to the cloud has a lot of moving parts and one wrong move could result in unforeseen expenses or failure to get the best performance from your new cloud environment. To ensure your business doesn’t encounter any issues, we conduct a cloud readiness assessment where we develop the best plan of action to accelerate your digital transformation journey.
During the workshop you will receive:
- A detailed and accurate inventory of your virtual and physical server assets.
Having a detailed understanding of your entire tech stack is invaluable during the migration process. This includes your IT infrastructure, data and applications. This allows us to establish what needs to be moved and how this can be done.
- A customised report on the total cost of moving to the cloud.
We give you a detailed breakdown of the costs involved with the migration. This is to ensure that there are no surprises and no hidden fees. We also help you to choose the best platform and cloud service provider for your business’s needs.
- A summary of the total potential savings and return on investment.
By identifying the current and future costs, we determine the break-even point and provide you with the calculated savings following your transition to the cloud.
- A detailed end-to-end migration plan.
We then compile a comprehensive migration plan that ensures operational continuity and data integrity at every step of the way.
- Guidance to help you execute your migration plan.
Once the above is completed, the last step is to move to the cloud. We guide you through the entire process to ensure the migration is successful and stress-free.
