Modernization of applications and IT-systems can seem like a huge job, but with a good partner, you can do the modernization effectively and systematically. A way to accomplish modernization for the current set of applications and systems is to do a Cloud Migration project.
Enfo has the capabilities for and experience in Cloud Migration projects for hyperscalers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. We have ready methodologies that are aligned with the best practices (such as Cloud Adoption Framework) of these hyperscalers.
The migration begins with scoping and scope analysis. The workloads are assessed to validate readiness for migration, estimate costs and to find the most beneficial migration strategy. Understanding the criticalities, usage methods and limitations set by the business (such as cut-over periods) is a key part of the process. When low-hanging fruit is found, an accelerated approach to capitalize on these opportunities can be taken. At the same time, the low-hanging fruit will work as a pilot for the migration methodology.
The migration scope is then cut into migration groups – a selection of migration candidates that have a commonality such as relations between applications or common migration strategy. The migration groups are planned carefully to set out tasks for the migration itself, test procedures and develop a handover procedure for the operations.
The migration candidates are then migrated, tested (and if needed, rolled back) and moved to operations. Between different migration groups, it is vital to gather learned lessons to further develop and optimize the migration process.
