Cloud Migration Assessment

Abel Solutions takes a holistic approach to cloud migration assessments, taking into account your organization’s existing systems and infrastructure to deliver the best possible technology roadmap.

Why Get a Cloud Migration Assessment?

As your organization embarks on its journey toward a cloud environment, it’s crucial to ensure a smooth and successful process.

A cloud migration assessment plays a vital role in this endeavor by evaluating your current IT environment and helping to develop a comprehensive migration plan that includes three core objectives:

    • To identify cost-saving opportunities
    • To ensure optimal resource utilization
    • To create a scalable and flexible cloud environment

A study by Gartner found that organizations can save up to 30%
on their cloud costs through rightsizing and optimizing resources

How A Cloud Migration Assessment Identifies Cost-Saving Opportunities

A cloud migration assessment contributes to long-term savings for your organization by:

    • Analyzing current and projected costs associated with the migration
    • Identifying cost-saving opportunities, such as rightsizing resources and leveraging reserved instances
    • Providing recommendations for cost-optimized migration strategies

How A Cloud Migration Assessment Ensures Optimal Resource Utilization

Ensuring optimal resource utilization via a cloud migration assessment, organizations can:

    • Reduce wastage and over-provisioning of resources
    • Adjust resources dynamically based on demand patterns
    • Implement cost monitoring and reporting tools to track spending and optimize costs over time

How A Cloud Migration Assessment Creates a Scalable & Flexible Cloud Environment

Leveraging the insights from a cloud migration assessment allows your organization to create a future-proof cloud environment that supports growth and innovation. Some key factors to consider when designing a scalable and flexible cloud environment include:


Application Architecture

Adopting a microservices-based architecture enhances scalability and flexibility, making it easier to update and deploy new features.


Automation & Orchestration

Utilizing automation tools and orchestration platforms, such as Microsoft 365, simplifies the management of complex cloud environments and improves operational efficiency.


Monitoring & Observability

Implementing comprehensive monitoring and observability solutions helps to proactively identify and resolve issues, ensuring the reliability and performance of your cloud environment.
