AWS Cloud Migration
AWS Migration Readiness
Confidently Plan Your Move to AWS
Many companies are looking at public cloud to modernize their data platforms, build cloud-native applications and migrate their data and workloads to the cloud. A recent whitepaper by IDC has shown that customers who migrate to AWS can experience a 51% reduction in operational costs, a 62% increase in IT staff productivity and a 94% reduction in downtime. AWS and SoftwareONE are helping thousands of organizations successfully migrate significant workloads to the cloud and leverage the full benefits of AWS.
Remove Your Migration Barriers
Cloud has become the new normal as organizations of every size have realized the benefits of the cloud. It’s no longer about the question “if” but about “How fast can we move?” and “What are we moving first?”. As many companies rarely undergo migration events it is vital for companies to invest in an upfront pre-migration readiness assessment to plan, prepare and fully understand the technical dependencies and complexity of migrating their applications to the cloud. Migration can be a high-risk activity and we at SoftwareONE help you solve that.

Helping You Achieve Your Desired Business Outcomes with AWS
In our experience, successful AWS migrations adopt a three-phase approach to help you develop, plan and execute your migration strategy. Once you understand your overall migration readiness we can help you define your application migration strategy and start your first migration project. Using repeatable processes and procedures we can support as your migration accelerates.
Understanding the three phases of successful migration:
Migrate & Modernize
Plan the start of your migration journey by understanding the readiness of your organization for cloud migration and identifying gaps in your organizational skills and processes. Clarify the desired business outcomes and develop the business case for migration.
Complete application discovery and create a migration plan to deploy applications into your foundation AWS environment (the “Landing Zone”). Solve the gaps in your organization’s readiness by building a cloud operating model and developing cloud skills.
Design, validate and migrate each application to AWS, re-factoring and re-platforming applications and constantly evolving towards a modern cloud operating model.
Prepare Your Migration to AWS
SoftwareONE recommend a Migration Readiness Assessment as the first step to gain a foundational understanding of your strengths and areas of support. Working with a certified AWS Consulting Partner can help you save valuable time and streamline your overall migration planning.
To achieve your migration the SoftwareONE AWS Migration Readiness Assessment (MRA) will identify capability gaps and recommendations to prepare for your migration. Our Migration Readiness Assessment is a free half-day workshop and invites a cross-functional group of key stakeholders from across your IT organization to build a common view of the current and future state. Our Assessment outcomes report provides a roadmap to a successful cloud migration.
