Fixed price fixed outcome - data migration

vClarus


Execute migration projects with clarity, certainty and control

Under intense pressure to modernise IT infrastructures and systems, your organisation needs to complete data migration projects on time, and to budget.

But IT migrations for Data Centres or the cloud are complex large-scale change management efforts that need to be carefully planned and managed.

Alongside a deep understanding of the current operating environment, you’ll need to scope future capacity and usage requirements—before determining the most appropriate migration strategy for the business. And any misconceptions along the way will result in costly overruns or, worse still, service disruptions for users.

Without access to the right resources, skills, people, tools or best practices, the risk of failing to achieve anticipated outcomes is high. So, how do you get migration right?

 

The Challenges

  • Poorly understood or documented legacy systems
  • No global visibility of services, workloads and dependencies
  • Under or overprovisioning the target environment
  • Lack of appropriate in-house skills
  • Insufficient time or resources for project planning and execution
  • Mitigating outages or delays
  • Addressing compliance and security issues

A four-step framework

Our vClarus framework methodology gives you an ‘end-to-end’ process that mitigates risk and delivers predictable outcomes, so your digital transformation goes exactly as planned.

Using vClarus, we’ll map out every aspect of your project and establish key migration milestones—including the What (expected outcomes), Where (your target environment), How (migration strategy and methods) and When (the schedule).

1: Assessment - Scoping every element of your existing environment and business case requirement, we evaluate your target architecture and migration constraints, and provide recommendations on hosting options.

2

Discovery and analysis - We map your application stack, workflows and user profiles to give you a 360-degree representation of your existing services, applications and infrastructure. As part of this process, we undertake an in-depth review of your readiness to migrate.

3: Design and planning- Next, we formulate the best migration methods to utilise, establishing a global migration strategy complete with templates and detailed tasks for each phase of the migration process.

4: Execution- We test and transition services to your new environment, providing real-time progress reports on each scheduled phase. Using vClarus, we’re able to make sure each stage is appropriately sequenced and monitored to eliminate the risk of slippage or delays.
