"Within three days, I had four different people coming into my office telling me to check out RiverMeadow's Cloud Migration SaaS. We never expected this level of engagement or support throughout this process. Our whole team is overwhelmed with satisfaction."- Chris Swadish, VP & CTO, PCM.
This whitepaper seeks to address a range of factors associated with data center migration. Starting with business drivers, we investigate the typical triggers for a customer to engage in this activity. This is followed by an overview of relevant tools and technologies, ranging from discovery, planning, governance, to migration automation using RiverMeadow’s SaaS solution. We explore in depth each phase of a data center migration from a practitioner's point of view, including a walk through of specific migration methodologies (such as physical lift and shift, versus physical to virtual migrations). Lastly, we explore the relevance and benefits of applying migration automation to a data center migration project, and the associated technical and business benefits.

In this white paper, we'll explore the capabilities this solution offers companies that want to reduce cloud sprawl, create an effective multivendor strategy and realize their cloud potential.
