Cloud Migration

Future-ready data platforms

To remain competitive, organisations need to optimise their IT infrastructure in terms of speed, scalability, cost, governance and maintainability. IT departments are under pressure as demands for innovation, organisation and compliance often conflict with existing IT landscapes. Woodmark can help you migrate and modernise your data platforms to make them fit for the future.

Goals and advantages

We recommend professional support for successful, long-term modernisation. Our experts will ensure that your IT is future-proofed so that you can meet new business requirements quickly and easily. In addition to optimising cost, scalability and performance, the objectives include reducing operational costs and cleaning up the platform.

Modern microservice and serverless architectures minimise operational costs while maximising scalability and application reliability. Testing and deployment are automated, agility is increased and monitoring enables rapid action and prompt adaptation to new requirements and changes in the business environment.

Cloud Readiness Assessment

Fast and cost-effective feasibility study of your cloud project

Want to digitise your department but don't have the cloud expertise? We can translate your requirements into IT, helping you with a feasibility study and testing your use case. This is a quick and cost-effective way to find out if moving to the cloud is worthwhile for you and what you need to consider.

Focus group: Team leaders from the specialist departments, e.g. Finance, Purchasing, HR, Production & Sales

Objective: Gain an understanding of the benefits and challenges of moving to the cloud. Our offering includes a customised feasibility check of your cloud readiness based on a specific business use case. We will also provide you with information on how to modernise and scale in the cloud, an evaluation of the assessment and specific recommendations for your organisation.

Migration Acceleration Program (MAP)

 

In the Assess phase, we carry out a thorough analysis of your cloud readiness and identify your strengths and weaknesses. Together, we develop TCO calculations as the basis for the Mobilise phase, in which we work out the migration in detail. In addition to proven standard methods, we place particular emphasis on working with you to consider further aspects of modernisation.

In the Migration phase, we implement the planned aspects of the migration, including the switch to managed services, containerisation and serverless architectures. DevOps practices are also implemented.

Modernisation aspects such as modern lakehouse concepts, new modelling paradigms, silo consolidation and the generation of data products using the data mesh approach can also be taken into account. This makes it possible to align your new data platform with future requirements today.
