Get migration ready with the AWS Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool

Driven by the need for greater productivity, lower costs, and more recently being able to scale a remote workforce, organizations around the world are moving their IT workloads to the cloud. Planning a move to the cloud requires upfront pre-migration planning; this is as important as the implementation itself. But it can be daunting to know where to start or what needs to be in place for a successful migration. The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Adoption Readiness Tool (CART) can help provide insight into your level of readiness and what you can do to improve it.

How the tool works

  1. The tool is designed to help organizations assess their progress with cloud adoption and identify gaps in organizational skills and processes. Your CART report includes a heatmap and radar chart with detailed scoring information and resources to help you improve your readiness score. How does it work?
  2. Take the 16 question self-service survey. It’s available in English, German, Italian, Portuguese-Br, Spanish, Spanish – LAT, French, French-Canadian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Indonesian, and takes about 15 minutes to complete. There’s no-cost.
  3. The tool will assess your readiness across six perspectives from the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework: business planning, security, operations, people, platform, and process.
  4. Receive a custom, report on your level of migration readiness. The detailed report will point you to additional learnings on where you scored high and provides assets to help you in areas where you might need development. This will help set you on a path to cloud adoption success.
