Service overview

 

  • Evaluate client applications with automated analysis tools, efficient stakeholder interviews, and existing data capture with minimum analysis time and costs

 

  • Evaluate infrastructure and applications elements

 

  • Recommend application disposition and or transformation targets

 

  • Prioritize application cloud migration based on application compatibility, difficulty, and risk

 

  • Easy integration of resulting cloud strategy with overall data center strategy

EYP MCF has always been at the forefront of data center strategic planning which centers on the alignment of IT and Data Center Strategies.  Cloud initiatives have grown such that they have a material impact on nearly all enterprise IT and data centers strategies and many of our clients have struggled to understand and integrate the impact of cloud adoption into and integrated data center and IT strategy. 

 

This new service positions EYP MCF as the only firm that can offer a comprehensive Data Center strategy that includes both the planning for and quantifying the impact of cloud migration on data center and IT requirements and costs.   We take an application-centric approach to evaluate customer applications to understand both their technical readiness factors for the cloud and application dependencies and underlying infrastructure.  These are both crucial elements for planning and implementing a cloud migration and understanding its costs and impact on the facilities side of the data center strategy.

 

As more workloads are considered for the cloud, companies must now consider not only the technical questions regarding such initiatives, they should also understand how the cloud will change their IT and Facilities workloads.  Similarly, projecting both the future cloud costs and changes in internal costs is critical to making informed strategic decisions.  With its Application Cloud Readiness Assessment, EYP MCF provides the tools for our clients to evaluate and quantify cloud-driven changes to data center, IT, and cloud costs.  EYP MCF’s Application Cloud Readiness Assessment service can be integrated with our Data Center Strategy service or can be a standalone service.

How it Works

 

 

EYP MCF utilizes the Tidal Migrations platform which provides the tools and process structure for this application-centric analysis.  This approach shortens the time to see value in an application assessment initiative. The platform tracks pertinent information to support this process and utilizes automation for discovery and technology fingerprinting. Together, the application-centric process and the Tidal Migrations platform facilitate rapid and accurate assessments with less effort and reduced risk. 

Key Steps

 

Together, the application-centric process and the Tidal Migrations platform facilitate rapid and accurate assessments with less effort and reduced risk.  The analysis includes the following steps:
