The right way into the cloud.
Starting out with a sound cloud strategy is essential. However, equal care must be taken to minimise disruptions and downtime during implementation to keep your business running smoothly.
We make sure your migration roadmap is in sync with your ongoing business to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud, while the implementation itself is subject to thorough project governance using the PRINCE2 project management method. In addition to providing proactive risk and change management, this ensures your project will be consistently monitored all the way through to the pilot phase, before finally going live. This goes hand-in-hand with training users and raising awareness. Before cloud implementation can even begin, all questions must be answered and all business goals defined. Only then is it time to take the first step.
Step by step into the cloud.
As part of the cloud-implementation process, data is migrated to your new IT infrastructure. In this context, it is essential to have a look at your legacy data and determine whether this should also be taken along or whether archiving it will do.
Once your data is available in the new system, the infrastructure must be tested and optimised to ensure everything works as intended.
When everything is done and dusted, it’s time to train your employees. It may be necessary to provide additional on-demand support during this period. And as you begin using your cloud infrastructure, it’s recommended you monitor it to ensure that your business processes continue to function smoothly in the long term, even under various workloads.
