How the setup or migration service works Our consultants have extensive experience of migrating from legacy platforms to cloud based solutions in both large and small government departments. They understand both the technical and business process domains and can perform activities ranging from migration and best practice tuning on cloud platforms to extracting, cleansing and loading legacy data. Our service bridges the gap between the business users and vendors to ensure a smooth migration to the cloud platform.

The service will begin with a legacy and cloud solution assessment to evaluate/define the following; rules for mapping data between systems, data cleansing requirements, interfaces that need to be maintained, security requirements, support requirements, end user training needs and technology training needs. The assessment will conclude with the production of a focused cloud migration strategy. Our consultants will execute the cloud migrations strategy working with both the cloud vendor, business user and internal IT departments to set up the cloud service. Activities performed typically include; best practice, implementation of security requirements, product configuration, data migration and cleansing, testing, training and support set up.
