Parsons Saves 35% in Annual Operating Costs and Accelerates Innovation by Migrating to AWS

Parsons used Amazon Web Services (AWS) tools to analyze its current state, define its target state, and develop a migration readiness plan to help it achieve its business objectives more quickly. The company commissioned an AWS Optimization and Licensing Assessment (AWS OLA)—using a data assessment tool called Migration Evaluator—to analyze its hardware and software environment and gain visibility into the cost and resource readiness to build a data-driven business case. As a result, the company identified opportunities to reduce unplanned downtime, optimize ongoing compute costs, and bring technology to market faster by migrating to AWS.
