Lift & Shift Feasibility Assessment

Optimize your cloud move

Moving resources from the on-premise datacenter to the Azure environment is not something you do overnight. This needs proper planning and an approach to detail the workloads before they are re-hosted in the new environment.

Some say “the cloud is more expensive”.

This is partially true… just re-hosting your existing infrastructure to the cloud probably will cost your more. But if you re-platform or re-code your applications with the help of DexMach, you benefit from cloud-native functionalities, cost optimization and faster time to market. DexMach provides you with cost dashboards to continuously re-evaluate and tune your cloud environment.

We assist our customers throughout the entire migration process with an approach that works. Below you find a brief overview of the different steps and their goals.

Customer opportunity

  • End-to-end analysis and mapping of your entire IT estate, taking into consideration current deployment, usage, processes, and data.
  • The analysis will be the basis for the evaluation of your overall infrastructure in relation to your on-premises and cloud-strategy.
  • Optimize your current application and server workloads while providing insights on the business and technology benefits to moving additional additional workloads to the cloud.
  • Ability to provide recommendations to optimize policies and procedures to facilitate your digital transformation strategy and implementation.

Get started

Contact us for a first introduction meeting and we can get to know your requirements, vision & cloud strategy.

Next step we can plan the infrastructure optimization assessment. We explain you the technicalities and what is needed from your end help us gather the required information for the analysis.

An example of how such an assessment would look like:

  • 1-day implementation of the tooling
  • 2 to 4 weeks of environment scanning for information gathering
  • we analyse the results and plan a full day workshop to discuss the results and define your cloud migration road-map
  • optionally we can plan for a proof-of-concept to move a workload to the cloud
