AWS MAP—the smarter route to cloud transformation
Published Date :
AWS’s Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) was created to enable quick and easy cloud adoption.
The first phase of MAP is the assessment of migration readiness. This phase provides organisations with the performance metrics, analysis and business case to thoroughly understand its readiness for cloud migration. This is followed by Mobilize—MAP’s 2nd phase.
Mobilizing Resources: Building a foundation to migrate workloads
Once the organization is aware of existing gaps—not just technology gaps but cultural disparities too—it can plan its migration and put it into execution. This is the time when organisations can build out the business cases that they began developing during the Assessment phase. Key activities during the mobilize phase include:
Application planning: Depending on its requirements and the nature of its workloads, organisations should evaluate and finalise on cloud migration strategies according to the 7 R’s, I.e. Relocate, Rehost, Replatform, Refactor, Repurchase, Retire and Retain.
People Planning: setting up a cloud centre of excellence is an ideal way to drive the migration, set accountability and assign responsibilities among the organisations Human Resources.
Platform Planning: configuring a landing zone as per current best practices and standards allows the organisation to build, deploy, and run apps aligned to one standardized cloud environment model, so there is consistency across access control, connectivity operational instrumentation, etc. and they don’t risk breaches and data loss.
