When compared to on-prem, the flexibility of modern cloud platforms is nothing short of revolutionary. For this reason, enterprises across the globe are making a move to the cloud. However, as with any business transformation, the complexity of a cloud migration can quickly spiral out of control. Without a comprehensive plan of action, you risk sacrificing business continuity, and in turn, service delivery to your customers.
Trianz recognizes and understands how daunting a cloud migration can be. Customers do not tolerate service downtime and an internal service failure can bring business operations to a standstill. Despite this, digital transformation still offers many tangible benefits. Our experts have helped hundreds of businesses to plan and execute their cloud migration. By segmenting your migration into a clear and concise set of milestones, we can transform your IT operations without sacrificing your business continuity.
Cloud portfolio assessment benefits
A cloud portfolio acts as a catalog of your existing and planned services, while also including your chosen cloud provider and your relationship with them. This portfolio gives IT departments a point of reference when making critical IT decisions for the business.
By creating a cloud portfolio, your business will benefit from:
Visibility and understanding – Understand how your cloud services are interlinked and gain visibility into your cloud usage.
Improved operational efficiency – With every service mapped out, you can implement and enforce budgets to improve operational efficiency.
Governance and compliance – A cloud portfolio will allow your business to create guidelines and policies that are tailored to each of your services.
With proper cloud portfolio management (CPM), you can retain visibility into the status of your network and better regulate data access across your enterprise.
Cloud migration roadmap benefits
When undergoing a migration, planning is essential. A cloud migration roadmap will help you identify application dependencies and choose the right destination platform for your business.
By creating a roadmap for your cloud migration, you will experience the following benefits:
Clear IT vision – No project will get the go-ahead without key stakeholders being on board. A roadmap allows you to effectively communicate the steps you are taking and how much investment is required to fulfill project milestones.
Security is key – A roadmap allows you to build your cloud network with security at the forefront. When you lay a solid security foundation from the outset, your business can grow with the reassurance that your sensitive data is safe.
Prioritization – When undergoing a migration, it is simply not possible to move everything at once. A roadmap can help you prioritize what should be moved first and minimize any disruption to business operations during the transition.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. Our experts have found that a cloud migration roadmap can significantly increase the chance of a successful digital transformation.
Portfolio assessment and migration roadmaps with Trianz
Trianz is a leading cloud migration assessment provider with managed service provider (MSP) accreditation across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Our experts offer tailored portfolio assessment and migration roadmapping services, so your digital transformation can go ahead without a hitch.
Our cloud migration assessment services include:
Cloud portfolio assessment – We will analyze your existing infrastructure and services, creating a comprehensive portfolio for your reference. This will help you understand which applications are cloud-ready, and which may need further development before they can transition to your new platform. A cloud portfolio assessment will also identify legacy applications that would either perform poorly or pose a security risk in the cloud. We recommend that you phase out such applications while we curate a new cloud-native replacement for your business.
Cloud migration roadmap development – All of us follow a recipe to make the perfect dish, so why not create a recipe for migration success with a roadmap? The most common cause of failure of digital transformation is a lack of planning. For that reason, we believe a comprehensive cloud migration roadmap is essential for a smooth migration. Our experts will map out your migration, prioritizing applications based on the short-term return on investment (ROI) to your enterprise. Business-critical applications will need to remain operational during the migration and our experts can replicate your services and redirect traffic once development is complete. With clear and achievable migration milestones, we ensure that your digital transformation is seamless, so you can start leveraging the benefits of the cloud right away.
