Welcome to Aicomsol !
The three-phase migration process is designed to help your organization approach a migration of tens, hundreds, or thousands of applications. While each phase is a common component of a successful migration, they are not discrete phases, but an iterative process. As you iterate and migrate more applications, you will be able to drive repeatability and predictability in processes and procedures, and find that the migration process accelerates. Our comprehensive portfolio of AWS migration tools and our mature third-party migration tooling ecosystem provides automation and intelligent recommendations based on AWS machine learning to simplify and accelerate each step of the three-phase migration process.
At the start of your journey, you assess your organization’s current readiness for operating in the cloud. Most importantly, you want to identify the desired business outcomes and develop the business case for migration.
Tools help you assess your on-premises resources and build a right-sized and optimized cost projection for running applications in AWS. Your initial evaluation should include a quick review of your company readiness by completing the Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (CART) to evaluate strengths and opportunities for improvement. That initial assessment could lead to a deeper engagement with Migration Evaluator, which provides a total cost of ownership (TCO) projection for AWS based on your actual utilization of resources and our years of helping customers optimize their compute, storage, database, networking, and software licenses on AWS. When you only need to generate right-sized EC2 instance recommendations for running on-premises workloads in AWS, use AWS Migration Hub.
AWS can help you develop this business case using the AWS Cloud Economics Center, a proven methodology based on hundreds of customer engagements that delivers a compelling, Board-level business case and justification prior to embarking on a large-scale migration.
As part of the mobilize phase, you create a migration plan and refine your business case. You address gaps in your organization’s readiness that were uncovered in the assess phase, with a focus on building your baseline environment (the “landing zone”), driving operational readiness, and developing cloud skills.
A strong migration plan starts with a deeper understanding of the interdependencies between applications, and evaluates migration strategies to meet your business case objectives. One critical aspect of developing your migration strategy is to collect application portfolio data and rationalize applications using the seven common migration strategies: relocate, rehost, replatform, refactor, repurchase, retire, or retain.
During the migrate and modernize phase, each application is designed, migrated, and validated.
Migration Hub allows you to quickly get progress updates across all of your migrations, easily identify and troubleshoot any issues, and reduce the overall time and effort spent on your migration projects.
