What is Cloud Migration and Adoption?
The cloud speed, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the cloud means that it is an invaluable tool in any software innovation drive or digital transformation.
But choosing the right cloud and implementing it correctly is a challenge.
How cloud-ready are you? Which platform is most appropriate for your business? How do you migrate your applications?
Our Cloud Migration and Adoption service helps enterprise organisations to answer these questions and begin their journey to the cloud.
How we help you
Predominantly focusing on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, our services span both strategic and delivery work to help you get the most out of your resources, including:
Cloud strategy: we work with organisations to help them understand and look at 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) as well as helping with vendor selection.
Cloud readiness assessment: 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
First cloud connection: a productised service that establishes 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
Application migration: 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.
Our enterprise vision
Your business advantage comes from the quality of your applications, which in turn is a function of how quickly you can adapt and improve your software.
The cloud enables teams to provision infrastructure on demand at the click of a button, increasing agility and reducing time-to-market.
By outsourcing your infrastructure to the cloud in the right way, you can concentrate on true competitive differentiation at the level of the application instead of managing tin and data centres.
Increase cost and compute efficiency
The cloud enables IT organisations to provision exactly the infrastructure they need and scale up and down as necessary automatically in line with load.
Instead of procuring new hardware or following long processes for provisioning virtual machines, the cloud enables teams to provision infrastructure on demand at the click of a button with speed and agility.
Instead of spending money running data centres and on staff to support your infrastructure, organisations can roll this up into pay as you go operating expenditure, scaled in line with demand. They can also scale down dynamically to secure cost savings, and turn off development and test environments overnight or over weekends to tightly control cost.
Concentrate on innovation
By outsourcing and letting us run infrastructure, organisations can concentrate on true competitive differentiation at the application tier instead of managing tin and data centres.
Ensure quality and scalability
By moving to a software defined stack which is correctly configuration managed organisations can improve the quality of their output by building a more consistent, better controlled and more resilient platform.
Public cloud providers offer highly scalable programmable infrastructure to scale up to thousands of servers or containers automatically elastically.
Designing and adopting a cloud operating model
As large enterprises increasingly adopt public cloud, they are asking the sensible question of how cloud fits into and changes their workflows and internal processes.
These organisations have recognised that the cloud has an impact on how they work. That it’s not just someone elses data centre. Also, they usually recognise that cloud represents an opportunity for improvement and efficiency, if they adopt cloud in the right way.Read More
Download case study: TES Global
TES Global is a digital education company that has supported teachers for over 100 years.
Their existing CMS was incapable of supporting the quantity and quality of rich media that they needed to support a global network of teachers.
Read the case study to find out how we helped TES to introduce microservices, migrate to the cloud and create a Continuous Delivery pipeline, overall making significant cost savings whilst upgrading performance and scalability to meet their customers’ expectations.
