Migrating Applications to the Cloud



The client’s Cloud Business Office (CBO) was looking to successfully migrate ~1000 apps to the Cloud on both Azure and AWS with an aggressive deadline.



Technossus determined the high-level requirements that would impact the various systems in the integration process, and then created, validated, and documented a working reference architecture which included:

  • The Technossus team collaborated with client and stakeholder teams to define the current & target Cloud Maturity of the client, and select appropriate Cloud Adoption Metrics.
  • Technossus then helped the client’s CBO plan activities around Cloud Adoption: governance, knowledge, cloud operating model, cloud architecture, infrastructure and environment, networking, IAM, operations and security.
  • Technossus helped create a runbook of activities comprising of actions and recommendations of the relevant changes in people, processes, and technology.
  • Finally, Technossus helped client teams create a Cloud Migration Factory, and assisted with conducting sample pilots of apps to migrate while applying the lessons learned through iterations.



In this ongoing project, Technossus successfully completed creating the Cloud Migration Factory and the pilots and is on track to migrate over 300 apps to the Cloud through 2020 and before the deadline. Technossus will begin the post-cloud migration phases: Cloud Refactoring (rewriting, re-platforming) and Cloud Optimization in 2021.
