To get things right from the first day, a cloud strategy must be meticulously prepared.

Our Three Phase Cloud Migration
Planing – Implementation – 24/7 Operation
Preparation: Strategy & Planing
Implementation & Modernization
24/7 Managed Service
Preparation: Strategy & Planing
Before you take your first step into the cloud, we develop a clear strategy in a workshop with your teams. It covers fundamental topics such as:
  • Goal Definition: We establish the objectives for your cloud migration, such as reducing high data center costs or the need for more flexible working conditions.
  • Stakeholder Alignment: IT, finance, and business departments are involved from the very beginning, putting a migration team in place that is aware of your objectives and actively pursues them.
  • Type of Partnership: We set up a strong partnership - whether it’s just the initial setup with SITS or transition to a managed service operation later on.
Next, we plan the cloud migration of your entire IT infrastructure. This includes:
  • IT Inventory: Using automated cloud migration tools, we inventory all your apps, databases, and services so you know exactly what needs to be migrated.
  • Business Case Development: We calculate the benefits of migrating to the Microsoft Cloud and compare the costs of on-premise and cloud solutions.
  • Setting up a Plan: Our roadmap includes migration priorities, project milestones, and a list of resources needed for the migration and IT modernization for your executives.
Implementation & Modernization
Thefirst phase of our implementation starts with trainings and raising awareness among your IT and development teams. The goal? To enable a quickl and efficient migration. Next, we define "Landing Zones," the target systems where important areas such as Identity & Access Management or data storage will reside after migration, so you know exactly where and how your existing systems will be migrated. In the second phase, we migrate your resources to the Azure Cloud. Afterwards, we assist you in optimizing all your services, apps, and data ("workloads") for the cloud. In the third phase, we modernize your entire apps and data. Sometimes, a simple refactoring of apps, i.e., minimal adjustments and integration into Azure – such as converting a database to an Azure SQL database, is sufficient. We also support you if your apps require more modifications, for example, if they need to be reprogrammed for cloud operation. If some of your apps or services are not compatible with the cloud, we assist in finding alternatives or build new services from scratch for you.
24/7 Managed Service
Following the successful relocation of your data and apps to the Microsoft Cloud, we secure your entire IT environment and take care of its ongoing operation on request. First, we secure your entire IT environment using Microsoft Defender for Cloud or the cloud-native SIEM solution Microsoft Sentinel for collecting and analyzing key security data. Our managed service provides 24/7 support for managing, expanding, securing, and efficiently operating your Microsoft Cloud. We simplify the management of your workloads across all environments, offer real-time insights into cloud performance, and secure your data with backup and disaster recovery solutions.
