Application Migration to the Cloud
Quickly position and deliver a secure, tested cloud solution to your customers that accelerates service delivery, improves business performance, and reduces costs.

Some suggested questions to ask your customer:

Ideal customer:

  • Midsize and large enterprises who want to begin their journey to the cloud by modernizing/cloud enabling existing virtualized or non-virtualized applications, or
