We have a clear-cut philosophy of cloud-first and provide digital solutions for businesses through our comprehensive cloud offerings powered by a strong partner ecosystem. Cloud adoption/cloud migration comes with its challenges like business/stakeholder buy-in, integration into current enterprise architecture, data security & compliance, employee upskilling & more. We ease customers through this journey with our end-to-end cloud enablement services. Our cloud adoption solutions are powered by proprietary Cloud Orchestration Platform zIrrus that drives cloud migration, cloud-enabled DevSecOps, and Environment as a Service (EaaS).
The Migration Office provides the framework for Cloud Migration. A typical migration approach starts with application assessment, migration plan/strategy, progresses to the actual migration, testing and finally transition, acceptance. Our Customer Success Center extends the Migration Office for seamless release transition/cutover to production and faster releases.
The migration is guided by the blueprint & journey map. Key activities include garnering stakeholder support, selection of pilot projects, creation of a functional staging environment, orderly movement of services, data & system integration and a strong financial model to support the migration.
