Take your journey to the cloud together with ACTUM Digital
Our second company is a stable business which is close to end of live of the current data center hardware/contract and after evaluation, they discovered that Cloud is a better way for them as it will enable new possibilities for the company, lower the costs and ease the TCO calculation for multiple departments and much more. The processes and systems in the company are critical to meet the SLA set by the business. In this case, the approach will be more about getting all stakeholders on board, preparing the detailed plan for all services and data. We would also establish training for the engineering department because they will need to re-work some of their systems and possibly learn a whole new way how to operate the applications and data.
On those two examples, you can see that the requirements of the customers and expectations from the cloud are different and we at ACTUM Digital have an understanding of that. Our certified architects will help you on your journey to the cloud.
Doing the cloud assessment right is crucial for success of whole migration. We're helping customers to minimize risks, reduce the costs, pick the right architecture and accelerate the migration success by understanding and evaluation of current rather complex architectures and dependencies.
Proof Of Concept
This phase is extremely important and resources consuming. We will help you to choose the first service to migrate to cloud, select the best Cloud Services available, and build whole pilot. This phase also contains building of supporting services, roles land processes to make sure your cloud workloads have good foundations.
Once we will finish PoC we can move to the actual migration. Based on our experience and best practices we start with the migration of the data to the Cloud. Depends on the technology we will help you to smoothly migrate with ideally close to zero downtime.
Now as we have stable data sources in the Cloud we can move to Application migration. We are trying to pick the best technology for your current application and maximize the benefit for our clients. Our focus is to minimize costs, maximize scalability, and reduce operations.
Leverage the cloud
Once the migration of data and applications is done you can immediately benefit from using the Cloud Services. This is a post-migration phase where we will help you to find quick wins and correct settings for autoscaling, automation, and high availability.
Optimize and Evolve
Once your company adopted the cloud it's time to evolve to the next level and optimize migrated workflows. By optimizing your applications to a new cloud environment you will be able to scale more efficiently and use all features which GCP offers. The next area of focus for you should be better utilization and gathering of data to make better data-driven decisions across the whole organization.
Consider the following questions for your organization:
Which IT responsibilities might change between you and your infrastructure provider when you move to Google Cloud?
How can you support or meet your regulatory compliance needs—for example, HIPAA or GDPR—during and after your migration to Google Cloud?
How can you control where your data is stored and processed in accordance with your data residency requirements?
