Azure Migration Services

Microsoft Azure is the largest of the public clouds and provide a secure, scalable and flexible way to provide Infrastructure and Platforms as a Service to reduce capital spend.

Migrating to the cloud can deliver fundamental technology benefits that can help your enterprise execute multiple business strategies. By using cloud-based approaches, you can improve business agility, reduce costs, accelerate time to market, and enable expansion into new markets. To take advantage of this great potential, start by selecting the right partner with the right technology, expertise, experience and proven methodology to get you to the cloud. 

Empired developed a Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) for our Azure migrations with proven methodology to migrate and modernise workloads.  

Our migration and modernisation of workloads range from simple rehost migrations (also called lift and shift migrations) using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) capabilities that don't require code and application changes, through refactoring with minimal changes, to rearchitecting to modify and extend code and application functionality to take advantage of cloud technologies. 

It also includes cloud-native strategies and platform as a service (PaaS) strategies to rebuild on-premises workloads using Azure platform offerings and managed services. Workloads that have equivalent fully managed software as a service (SaaS) cloud-based offerings can often be fully replaced by these services as part of the migration process. 

  • INITIATION establishes project objectives and an agreed way of working, that provides a clear understanding of the scope of the project and the expected outcomes. 
  • DISCOVERY defines a complete understanding of existing infrastructure, services, processes and applications. 
  • ASSESSMENT determines the complexity of your apps/infra/data estate, do workload discovery/assessment, identify migration workloads/scenarios, and build the business case – all of these feed into a migration plan 
  • DESIGN transforms the assessment into architectural designs, process designs and migration plans.  
  • DELIVERY deploy the Azure Landing Zone and migrate workloads to the cloud, including rightsizing/end-to-end testing prior to cut over. 
  • OPTIMISATION and Management maintain an ongoing rhythm of governance and management during and after the migration through the right tools, people and process automation to optimise and manage the your cloud environment. 

Empired provides a perfect combination of using the best technology, expertise and a proven methodology to get you to the Azure cloud and a leading Azure managed service to maintain an optimise the environment.
