Cloud Readiness Assessment

There could be multiple objectives for an organization to consider a move to the cloud for eg. Agility, Cost Savings and Flexibility, Continuous Iteration and Innovation, Platform Breadth, or others. Similarly, all the workloads of an organization may not be suitable and compliant for cloud migration. To help you answer and make relevant and effective choices it is important for you to do a Cloud Readiness Assessment.

A thorough analysis of existing IT assets is completed using the right assessment tools covering IT Infrastructure, Security posture & Risk assessment, DC environment, TCO Analysis, etc. Some non-technical aspects should also factor into your decisions about which applications should stay on-premises: licensing, support, and regulatory.
