ALSO will review a customer’s environment and provide recommendations for tools to run a full assessment. Automated cloud migration tools can provide insights into existing infrastructure, workloads and app interdependencies to provide a basis for building out a cloud migration plan.

Once the assessment has been performed, it can be shared with ALSO engineers for further analysis. ALSO engineers will be able to evaluate how best to move each on-premises application and assist in designing the solution architecture. ALSO will help to identify and prioritise applications that are cloud-ready in order to get the migration moving quickly.
