cloud migration discovery and assessment

Discovery and Assessment

Often the most challenging and time-consuming part of a Cloud migration project is in the Discovery & Assessment phase, especially if your infrastructure is spread across multiple data centers or multiple teams. Visualizing your entire IT infrastructure, uncovering potential issues, documenting your findings and turning them into actionable insight takes time.
