Tried and tested Azure Migration methodology
At Cloud Direct we poured our experience and expertise gained from successfully completing more than 4,000 cloud migrations to outline the core stages of a successful Azure migration. Not to mention we’re a CAF-ready partner, which means our migration methodology has been certified by Microsoft for using the latest technology and best practice to provide a cost-effective and streamlined Azure migration for our customers.
Target end state
We review your current infrastructure and help you understand what a migration will look like for your different workloads. This in-depth discovery takes a holistic approach, so nothing gets missed.
We build a strategic roadmap recommending the best migration course for your different workloads to meet your business needs now and in the future. Developed around Azure landing zones, which create a secure foundation for your Azure environment to scale.
We break your migration into two key phases to ensure success. The first phase includes quick wins, fast ROI and minimal impact. The second looks at sophisticated workloads, longer-term ROI and re-architecting.

“Cloud Direct has been great. They sat down with us, asked what we were trying to achieve, then worked with us from planning through to implementation. I really value the personal level of service. Being able to pick up the phone and to speak to someone who knows what we’re trying to do from a business perspective makes a big difference"Tom Bradley - Director of Operations, The Care Database
