Outcome-focused cloud migration support

Well-Architected foundations for cloud migration make it quicker and easier to unlock AWS benefits.

DevOpsGroup’s outcome-focused cloud migration support addresses the risk and uncertainty that can come with cloud migration. It ensures organizations moving to AWS get off to a strong, secure and effective start. This offer is built around the AWS Well-Architected Framework, so every migrated workload is grounded in the latest best practice principles. DevOpsGroup prepare's a high-level migration plan for each of the workloads under review, then build well-architected landing zones to receive them.
At the outset, DevOpsGroup defines project goals and key milestones to ensure all stakeholder expectations are aligned. DevOpsGroup then identify's any risks that might lead to delays and highlight's improvements that are needed to ensure workloads perform well in the cloud environment.
The approach is methodical but flexible. It brings clarity and cohesion, enabling large and complex migrations to proceed smoothly, then quickly deliver tangible benefits. The entire process takes between one and three months, depending on the number and complexity of workloads.

  • How it works
  • Outcome-focused cloud migration support from DevOpsGroup involves three phases: discovery (including workshops and a Well-Architected Review of the target workload), design (including an architectural design document and a high-level plan), then delivery of a Well-Architected Cloud Landing Zone.
    In the discovery workshops, DevOpsGroup AWS Solutions Architect will work closely with key members of the organization’s team to elicit goals and pain points. This critical stage underpins the success of the entire engagement. As well as gaining a detailed understanding of core requirements and potential challenges, the foundation for a collaborative partnership is laid. Following on from this, DevOpsGroup engineers conduct a Well-Architected Review and additional desk-based discovery work to assess the existing architecture.
    The discovery phase informs the next stage this is where a cloud architecture design document is prepared along with a high-level migration plan. This includes technical recommendations which are verified by the cloud engineering experts, and a migration backlog outlining key tasks that need to be completed.
    Following on from this, the AWS Solutions Architects conduct a Well-Architected Review and additional desk-based discovery work to assess the existing architecture. This consulting offer uses expert-led analysis and planning to reduce the risks of cloud migration and ensure benefits are achieved more quickly.
