The migration process
Migrating your workloads to the public cloud can be an easy way to save money on IT costs while improving performance and reliability. Our migration services provide elegant yet cost-efficient solutions for businesses that need to move their applications and data to the cloud. Matoffo offers a variety of options, including managed migrations, custom migrations, and hybrid migrations. Yet, before you start migrating, let's dive into the specificities of this fascinating process to figure out how it works. Whether you are a business executive, project manager, or product owner, the three-step strategy we describe in the following paragraphs will suit everyone.
Migrate & Modernize
Here it is. The journey starts at this very moment. Are you ready for the migration? Have you inventoried your portfolio? Last but not least, what about your workforce and resources? These critical questions will seamlessly lead you through the first phase of the migration process.
In fact, assessment can become a key milestone to your further success. If you set realistic yet strict key performance indicators (KPIs), align stakeholders on business goals, and thoroughly run the Migration Readiness Assessment (MRA) workstream, there is no chance you will fail.
At this stage, you will not only identify where your company is in your cloud journey but also understand its strengths & weaknesses and plan how to fill the missing gaps. Of course, the Matoffo team will join you on this assessment path.
Now it is time to move with the migration process and prepare your team & resources to migrate your enterprise at scale. Yet, what does this stage include?
During this phase, multiple workstreams, including detailed business case, portfolio discovery specification, actual app migration, migration governance, landing zone, security, risk & compliance configurations, people preparations, and operations workstreams, should be run.
As a result, you will not only initiate the migration process but also gain an opportunity to build a stable foundation for tooling, process, and culture that will significantly fasten migration at scale.
Migrate & Modernize
Ultimately, we are here, at the finish line of the migration process. Leveraging the best practices and approaches identified during the previous phases, it is possible to implement a migration factory, a blueprint of scaling execution and procedures, through automation and elegant delivery.
As you move your business assets to the cloud, you have to operate them in the cloud properly. Hence, further modernization steps can be completed in the AWS Cloud environment by introducing auto-scaling and load balancing to the app layer to ensure increased availability.
