Our Migration Approaches

To successfully migrate legacy applications to the cloud, organizations must understand the best approach based on each application’s characteristics and the destination environment. Also, application interdependencies are critical. It is necessary to understand each component inside the application and how it communicates with other components to prevent surprises during or after the migration. Below are the approaches to migrating legacy applications to the cloud.



Also known as lift-and-shift, organizations commonly choose to move a workload from on-premises to the cloud without modifying it. It allows companies to migrate applications faster, potentially reducing costs. However, moving applications without modifications means that businesses cannot take advantage of cloud benefits such as auto-scaling and on-demand pricing.



This approach involves making minor changes to the application. Instead of changing the core architecture, the organization may overlay cloud-like functionality, for example, upgrading to a managed cloud-based database or moving the application into a container platform. The option is intended to move workloads to an environment with easier management, greater scalability, high availability, and automation.



This option introduces significant architectural changes and modernization to allow a non-cloud-native workload to operate in a cloud-native environment. For example, refactoring may involve breaking monolithic applications into microservices for improved performance and agility. It tends to be the most expensive and time/energy-consuming option but delivers the greatest return for certain types of applications.

Four Phases of a Successful AWS Migration

To ensure a smooth and successful transfer, we take a phased approach to the Migration process that considers data handling requirements, data governance, compliance, and security. As part of the migration process, we work with you to define adequate processes and governance to ensure business continuity while migrating to the cloud. Otherwise, the migration process can risk security, performance, and cost issues.



Start with a migration readiness assessment and identify the on-premise resources to plan where cloud migration should start.



Migrate quickly and efficiently with flexible, powerful tools ensuring minimal business disruption.



Streamline resources to improve performance, maximize ROI, and maintain compliance.



Fine-tune resources to strengthen security and oversee analytics and AWS usage.

AWS Cloud Adoption Framework

The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) is one of the tools we use to support smooth migrations to the cloud. We can accelerate your cloud adoption and set your business for success by aligning IT goals with business goals by utilizing cloud adoption framework principles. The CAF enables proper cloud governance principles and launches your foundational cloud implementation. We create a roadmap with well-defined actionable work streams to guide all your business departments individually on your ongoing cloud adoption project.

There are six areas of focus called “perspectives” that make up the cloud adoption framework. Each perspective builds a set of responsibilities and describes how they relate to the broader cloud adoption plan. We've outlined the main areas and their roles below.:
