AWS Migration Acceleration Program
Accelerate your cloud migration and modernization journey with an outcome-driven methodology
The AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) is a comprehensive and proven cloud migration program based upon AWS’s experience migrating thousands of enterprise customers to the cloud. Enterprise migrations can be complex and time-consuming, but MAP can help you accelerate your cloud migration and modernization journey with an outcome-driven methodology.
MAP provides tools that reduce costs and automate and accelerate execution, tailored training approaches and content, expertise from AWS Professional Services, a global partner ecosystem, and AWS investment. MAP also uses a proven three-phased framework (Assess, Mobilize, and Migrate and Modernize) to help you achieve your migration goals. Through MAP, you can build strong AWS cloud foundations, accelerate and reduce risk, and offset the initial cost of migrations. Leverage the performance, security, and reliability of the cloud. Begin your journey today.

How it works
Step 1: Assess your readiness
The migration readiness assessment helps you identify gaps along the six dimensions of the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework - business, process, people, platform, operations, and security. This assessment enables you to identify the capabilities required in the migration and build a TCO model for your migration project.
Step 2: Mobilize your resources
The mobilize phase helps you build an operational foundation for your migration, with the goal of fixing the capability gaps identified in the assessment phase. The mobilize phase accelerates your migration decisions by providing clear guidance on migration plans that improve the success of your migration.
