We help design, plan and execute migrations of your critical applications and data.
Digital transformation has led every organisation to evaluate their infrastructure, systems, software and use of data. The shift to cloud environments is moving so quickly that even for those who have never previously considered a cloud solution, it’s a key consideration when evaluating their IT strategy over the short, medium or long term.
Naturally, any type of system migration poses a huge risk. As organisations are now more reliant on their technology for day-to-day operation, major changes or movement of current systems are often avoided by internal and external teams until “needs must”.
- A system moves to end-of-life (EOL) state

- Commercial advantages – with the need to deliver savings and improvements, migrations to newer, cheaper technologies are required
- A system presents a major error or disaster, forcing the need to migrate
We often combine a range of our services to implement seamless migration projects. These include:

This often involves collaboration between our technical and projects teams to co-ordinate technical and physical infrastructure requirements.
We engage with third-party application providers to implement and integrate applications into the organisation’s wider infrastructure.

This helps with communication, strategy alignment and clearly defines roles & responsibilities from the outset.
We adopt a basic key three stage approach to delivery, which is adapted to suit the size and scale of the project/migration but inevitably follows the same principles:
