Planning your application transition to the Cloud

Since the beginning of the crisis, many companies have reoriented their projects around solutions that can be integrated with the public Cloud. Migrating virtual environments, developing applications, backing up and recovering data on the Cloud, setting up virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) … there are a growing number of use cases.

A process that can be prepared in advance, one step at a time!

This increase is also due to advantages such as faster project deployment, environment agility and scalability, predictable monthly costs and the ability to benefit from providers’ native Cloud services.

However, if your company wants to stay in control of certain aspects like security, the evolution of its architecture and Cloud service costs, it is important to establish your strategy and foundation right from the start. Depending on which phase of its approach your company has reached, here are two examples of how our team can help you.
