Refine your vision for cloud migration

Why Engage in a Cloud Readiness Workshop?
Many organizations have been slow to adopt the cloud due to perceived risks or concerns surrounding security, compliance, integration, performance, or expenses. A Cloud Readiness Workshop helps organizations get the information they need to build a solid cloud migration strategy. At its core, the Cloud Readiness Workshop is really about understanding your organization’s challenges and business requirements in order to make expert recommendations to fuel your cloud adoption journey.
After the Cloud Readiness Workshop: Proof of Concept Migration
Undertaking a cloud migration and transformation project is a big step. A Cloud Readiness Workshop can help the process, but what’s next? In many cases, a Proof of Concept migration can further validate the strategy laid out in the workshop and accelerate your cloud adoption while you see the benefits of cloud migration directly. A Proof of Concept also helps to resolve potential issues before a migration project gets underway.
