Assessment – Cloud Readiness

The Cloud Readiness Assessment is an integral and often overlooked step when it comes to working with a Cloud Migration Partner. The goals of the Cloud Readiness Assessment is to aid in the who, what, where, when and why of a cloud migration.


  • Who: Which users will be affected by the migration?
  • What: What is going to be moved, in what ways and in what form?
  • Where: Where is the data going and where is it coming from?
  • When: What is the timeline for completion?
  • Why: What is the goal you are trying to achieve with your migration?

Once complete, the assessment will provide a thorough review of your existing IT environment and will allow our Architects to match
