Mitigate Migration Risks with A2C 
Cloud's Thorough Assessment Strategy

As businesses continue to embrace cloud computing, the demand for seamless cloud migration services has skyrocketed. To ensure a successful and hassle-free transition to the cloud, A2C Cloud, an AWS Advanced Tier consulting partner, has developed a robust migration assessment strategy. This strategy empowers customers to prepare effectively for their cloud adoption journey, make informed decisions, and achieve their desired outcomes.

1. Comprehensive Assessment of Existing Infrastructure

The first step in A2C Cloud’s migration assessment strategy is to thoroughly assess the customer’s existing IT infrastructure and applications. Our team of experts conducts a comprehensive evaluation, including:

  • Inventory of on-premises assets
  • Infrastructure dependencies
  • Application portfolios

This assessment helps us gain a holistic understanding of the customer’s current state and identify potential challenges that may arise during the migration process.

2. Defining Clear Migration Goals and Objectives

Once the current state assessment is complete, we work closely with our customers to define clear migration goals and objectives aligned with their business objectives. By setting specific and measurable goals, we provide our customers with a clear roadmap for their cloud adoption journey, enabling them to track progress and measure success.

3. Comprehensive Risk Analysis and Mitigation

Migrating to the cloud involves inherent risks, such as data breaches, application downtime, and compatibility issues. A2C Cloud’s migration assessment strategy includes a comprehensive risk
analysis, where we identify and prioritize potential risks associated with the migration process.
We then develop a robust risk mitigation plan, ensuring that our customers have a clear
understanding of the potential challenges and measures in place to address them.

4. Application Readiness Assessment and Prioritizations

Not all applications are created equal, and migrating them to the cloud requires careful consideration. A2C Cloud’s migration assessment strategy includes an application readiness assessment, where we evaluate the suitability of each application for migration. We consider factors such as application complexity, dependencies, and business criticality to determine the optimal migration approach for each application. This prioritization helps our customers allocate resources effectively and ensures a smooth migration process

5. Cost Estimation and Optimization Analysis

One of the key concerns for businesses embarking on a cloud migration journey is cost. A2C Cloud’s migration assessment strategy includes a detailed cost estimation and optimization analysis. We provide our customers with a comprehensive breakdown of the expected costs associated with their cloud migration, including infrastructure, licensing, and ongoing operational expenses. Additionally, we identify opportunities for cost optimization, such as rightsizing resources and leveraging AWS cost optimization tools, to help our customers maximize their return on investment.

By conducting a thorough assessment, defining clear goals, identifying and mitigating risks, ensuring application readiness and prioritization, and estimating and optimizing costs, we empower our customers to embark on their cloud adoption journey with confidence.
