Operating workloads on AWS increases business agility as well as flexibility and reduces operating costs. The migration of productive systems into AWS, however, presents challenges. Only once these have been overcome will the advantages of a cloud environment be fully exploited. As a partner of AWS, T-Systems supports companies with the migration and operation of systems across the entire life cycle of applications.
Together with AWS, we have developed key factors and a series of standard methods for a successful IT switchover. We use this as best practice for various migration scenarios from the migration of small individual applications to the migration of entire computing centers with hundreds of applications. Our migration process builds upon a balance between business and technical requirements. We identify the most important business requirements and use this as the basis for creating the strategy for planning and implementing a cloud migration.
Then you need to decide which systems will be migrated. To do this, as a first step, we take you through a free migration readiness assessment (MRA). During several days of workshops, we define which systems are suitable for migrating into the AWS cloud. Based on the results, we create a report with you that will highlight the expected total cost of ownership (TCO) for the migration as well as the later operation in the cloud. Based on the assessment results and the TCO report, you will decide which systems you would like to migrate.
