Which Apps Should You Move to the Cloud?
With your cloud strategy and objectives defined, your next steps are to perform a risk benefit analysis of moving your applications to the cloud, define the business case, and identify the right migration pattern and cloud architecture.
Some applications can be simply re-hosted in the right cloud platform. Others may need software change, from re-factoring to re-writing. Some others might be replaced with SaaS, or new cloud-native applications. The challenge for enterprises making this transition is where to start. Which is the right migration pattern and cloud destination for you?
Take a Workload-centric Approach
We provide a structured, methodical and cloud-agnostic assessment of your applications, while ensuring fast time-to-value through early visibility of quick wins and ROI. The data we gather supports informed decision-making on:
- Cloud suitability: Selecting applications for migration, depending on their complexity, business value and sensitivity
- Cloud options: Selecting a cloud destination (IaaS – public or private, PaaS, SaaS), using tools to assess how each application will perform in a cloud environment and determine the right migration pattern
- Business case: Demonstrating the business value of the rationalization design
- Proof of concept planning: Defining migration patterns and an initial migration roadmap
