Overcome the migration wall of doubts

Data centre migration to the cloud

  • You have to choose between lift-and-shift and a big modernisation initiative
  • You don’t have the budget for migration
  • Migration planning is a long process
  • Migration is only about infrastructure
  • Migration disrupts operations and process flows
  • Traditional IT skills will easily transfer to the cloud
  • An on-premises managed services approach translates to the cloud

Overcome the app modernisation wall of doubts

Modernising applications to the cloud

  • Buying commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS) is better than a customised modernisation

  • You don’t have the budget for modernisation now
