We have been migrating our client services and data to the cloud as they adapt to become elastic digital workplaces to deal with an increase in online demand and remote working.
For clients that have already begun the move to cloud computing, they're accelerating a cloud transformation that will lead the way forward in the years to come.
Our solutions allows companies to quickly get a comprehensive view of their business across all departments to make smarter, more informed business decisions.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach for moving applications to – or between - Public or Private clouds. But there are acknowledged core migration strategies, as identified by Gartner with their 5 R’s - Rehost, Refactor, Revise, Rebuild and Replace . Microsoft broadly follows this framework – albeit with some additions and adaptations, and AWS added their own interpretation into the mix with their 6 R’s.
There is no definitive ‘right way’ when it comes to choosing a cloud migration path and it will vary by company, workload and use case. But key patterns have emerged which put these approaches into three key buckets:
►Lift & Shift - a tactical approach aimed at ‘quick wins’
►Lift & Modernize - a vital way to retire legacy debt as part of the migration process
►Refactor - a costly approach that will require effort and disruption but is a ‘necessary evil’
