Cloud Migration Services

Accelerate the move to public and private clouds with SDA's Cloud Migration Services and leading tools.

A growing number of organizations are considering a move to public and hybrid clouds to increase business and IT agility, compete more effectively and replace outdated data centers and applications.  Unfortunately, migrating PeopleSoft or Oracle EBS applications carry risks of delays, service interruptions and project failure.  Many organizations don’t fully understand connectivity and performance issues and can take months or even years to decide what to move and where to move it.

SDA Cloud Migration Services offer a standard, repeatable methodology and reference architecture to plan and migrate applications, data, operating systems and configuration based on your organization’s requirements. These services shorten project timelines and lower costs when migrating to public clouds or between clouds, data centers or virtual platforms.
