A complete set of AWS Advanced Consulting services to migrate, run and evolve applications in the cloud.
With a certified Cloudsoft engineer, take a look under the hood at your existing AWS costs, security and infrastructure. With Cloudsoft Spotlight, we can identify migration opportunities for your software applications in the cloud that will improve your resilience and lower costs. Furthermore, with one of our engineers, we can model non-cloud platforms to work out the total cost of ownership. Using the AWS Well Architected Framework, we are able to recommend the optimum deployment and conditions for your applications - mapped to the five pillars of resilience, security, innovation, agility and cost optimisation. Finally, using the Cloud Adoption Framework, your organisation can leverage Cloudsoft's AWS expertise to understand how to exploit opportunities in the cloud.
The outcome of the standard Migrate professional service is a running application in AWS that has been replatformed. Cloudsoft recommends that customers also purchase the Run managed service so Cloudsoft can complement the customer team with their application and cloud management expertise. It is possible for customers to buy the Replatform professional service as a stand-alone and Cloudsoft will work with the customer to migrate one application to the cloud. Then, the customer will manage the application from that point on, instead of Cloudsoft. It is possible to extend the standard service for application migrations, and more complex applications and these will be scoped and priced accordingly.
Run is Cloudsoft's managed service offering that manages the cloud and application resources in the cloud. This frees up the customer to focus on their application code, and allows them to leverage Cloudsoft engineering and automation to reduce costs, increase uptimes, respond to events and exploit the cloud. The Run service requires investment in onboarding professional services, most commonly in the form of the Migrate service. This is to ensure the application is understood, modelled, blueprinted and managed correctly. Cloudsoft does not do "My Mess For Less" outsourcing and does not manage "unknown applications" that are not blueprinted. Managed Run costs vary because of the different cloud resources required by different application types, and these costs will be estimated at the start of the engagement and based on the application needs.
Evolve professional services are add-ons to the Cloudsoft Run managed service. It is through Evolve services that Cloudsoft help the customer to refactor their application in the cloud to reduce costs, increase uptimes, respond to business events and exploit cloud innovation. A number of professional services days can be bundled into the Run managed services cost to amortise the cost and effort throughout the year. The customer also has options to add more Evolve professional services to meet bigger demands.
Our Connect service enables ServiceNow customers to consume AWS via the Service Catalog. Using the same request/approval workflows in ServiceNow, which eliminates cloud friction, users can consume AWS Service Catalog items which enforces more guardrails as well as making it easy.
