Use the Cloud Readiness Assessment to prioritize the applications to be migrated and to which cloud platform.
Knowing resource utilization is essential in planning a successful migration. Automate it with Tidal.
Determine migration waves by mapping dependencies within each application system. Tidal makes this a dynamic process.
A datacenter-to-cloud project had ambitious financial targets, which are often only achieved by projects with high one-time costs and many consultants. Not so for this public sector client.
Through a detailed Cloud Readiness Assessment and Migration Planning Excersice, this client was able to efficiently plan and communicate migration windows with their end-users months in advance, ensuring ample time for test-plan development and proactive stakeholder engagement. Knowing what is migrating, when and how, is just one benefit of using Tidal Migrations.
Scan your applications to determine their technologies. Scan your network to determine dependencies and usage.
In this step, use leading edge tools and a consultative approach to understand your IT footprint.
Organize applications, servers and other resources into transition waves and easily understand the impact when the scope invariably changes on you.
The rubber meets the road here! With a detailed assessment and plan in hand, you have everything you need to be successful!
The most common cause of error in datacenter and cloud migration projects is working off of the wrong version of “the spreadsheet”. Tidal Migrations replaces the need for spreadsheets by providing an online collaboration portal for your migration team to work from. Our Slack integration allows your entire team to be on the same page, with notifications for changes to application, server and migration planning data. Come execution time, you’ll have everything you need to use Slack as your virtual war room.
