Workload Migration


Transition your mission-critical workloads smoothly - on time and on-budget

Whatever the driver for your workload migration project – data centre consolidation, cloud adoption or corporate M&A – you need to ensure the transition process runs as smoothly as possible. With no downtime, data loss, or performance issues.

With decades of experience delivering data migration services, we help organisations accelerate their IT modernisation projects and embrace digital transformation faster.

Taking care of everything from configuring workloads for your target destination, to ensuring that the security and data protection that preserves compliance is in place, our holistic approach delivers a business outcomes focus that ensures a smooth cutover – with no impact on end users.

Addressing the entire end-to-end migration cycle, our proven methodologies, practices and automated tools dramatically reduce risk and speed up the delivery of completed migrations.

The benefits of working with Bell

We’ve helped organisations of every size migrate tens of thousands of workloads to all types of platforms, with no unexpected costs or security vulnerabilities. In the process, we’ve helped accelerate business value – by aligning strategy and outcomes to drive success.

1

Programme strategy – we help you establish programme boundaries and critical success factors that provide focus and avoid scope creep.

2

Target architecture standards – from gap analysis that removes the risk of unexpected surprises to establishing technical goals and standards for the target state and exceptions criteria, our end-to-end process delivers predictable outcomes.

3

Migration principles – we’ll define guiding principles for how business services migrate to the target state. Ensuring you achieve stakeholder buy-in from all key groups whose activities and processes will be impacted by when workloads are migrated.

4

End-to-end governance – integrated reporting and controls for every workstream ensures an optimised execution process.

A comprehensive and highly structured framework

Using vClarus, we’ll map out every aspect of your project and establish key migration milestones including the What (expected outcomes), Where (your target environment), How (migration strategy and methods) and When (the schedule).

Accelerated Discovery

Scoping every element of your existing environment and business case requirement we:

  • evaluate your target architecture and any migration constraints
  • generate a 360-degree representation of your services, applications, infrastructure, service user profiles and all workload dependencies
  • identify where the risks and knowledge gaps lie
  • Migration Planning and Design

    We determine your preparedness to migrate workloads and:

  • define a migration strategy, complete with a prioritised list of candidates
  • ensure workloads are appropriately right-sized for the assigned future platform
  • detail the steps required for each type of migration
  • prepare a migration schedule containing defined migration events, together with rules, constraints and business restrictions for each phase of the migration process
  • Migration and Transistion

    We execute the migration schedule, utilising vClarus to apply governance to every sequenced event to eliminate the risk of slippage or delays and assure a smooth transition to an operational state:

  • iterative transfer to and validation of all applications and workloads in the new environment
  • retirement or re-location of legacy infrastructure
  • update service run books with any code or configuration changes
