Migration Strategy and Execution Expertise Across Technologies

Move Business Services Across Technologies and Platforms, Minimizing Risk, Disruption and Downtime

Your modernization strategy relies on successful application migrations. But, in reality, most businesses lack the technical resources, time or knowledge needed to smoothly migrate applications across technologies and platforms — resulting in business risk, disruption and downtime.

In fact, according to Forrester, 80% of organizations are at least two years into their modernization journey, with almost 30% experiencing complications that stalled the migration process. And 40% report that migrations and operations are costing more than forecast.

Our migration consulting experts have the strategy, planning and execution expertise you need, across all application migration scenarios — so you can modernize faster and more successfully, while protecting your business.

Our Approach to Migration Consulting and What it Means to You

Custom Migration Plans

Our experts will get to know your business context and user requirements, and then build out your aligned migration plan.

Stakeholder Alignment

We’ll work with your stakeholders to define your optimal target state — so you own where you’re going.

Program Confidence

We’ll help identify the best candidate applications for your first transition, so you can experience some quick wins early on.

Proven Framework

With our service factory methodology, your approach to migration can be repeatable, robust and rapid.

We’re with you through your entire migration, all the way to production stability and continuity in your new environment.

The Expertise You Need, Across All Application Migration Scenarios

Application Migration Services

No matter how your business services are constructed or hosted, our application migration services specialists will move you smoothly to your target state. We profile your application landscape, determine the appropriate migration strategy for each application, design the target architecture and then plan and execute the transition into stable state. Where appropriate, we help you build confidence and momentum with an industrialized migration factory approach, applying automation to achieve a sustainable rate of change.

We assign a dedicated technical consultant, project manager and consulting engineer to your migration. Our experts have extensive experience migrating across on-premises and all leading public and private clouds including AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure and VMware.

Cloud Strategy and Enablement

Successful migrations are built on a detailed understanding of business priorities, engaged stakeholders, clear architectural principles and a validated view of your target platform. If you need support selecting a target cloud platform or developing an architecture framework for your new environment, our consultants are on hand to help.

Cloud Architecture Principles

Strong architecture frameworks and design principles de-risk and future-proof your application environments. Our consultants help you design and apply pragmatic architecture, engineering and migration controls that shape your approach to platform adoption.

Cloud Decision Maker

Based on years of deploying and managing clouds at scale for customers, we help remove subjectivity and ambiguity from your platform choices. Our consulting architects apply a battle-tested, structured assessment approach, collaborating with you to determine and test which cloud platform(s) and services best fit your overall cloud adoption strategy and business objectives.
