Convergency's Cloud Transition Service
When moving systems to AWS and Azure cloud platforms in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific Region, you need a partner with experience and a proven process.
Convergency's T-8 Process moves your systems to the cloud in 8 weeks guaranteed.
Our T-8 Process (T minus 8)
Convergency’s T-8 Cloud Transition Process moves workloads to the cloud in predictable cycles, that we call waves. Waves are comprised of numerous systems evaluated for complexity, interdependency, environmental constraints and data volume. T-minus 8 implies a countdown - our commitment to achieve a 8-week target date through the use of carefully crafted discovery, planning and execution phases.
Convergency’s T-8 Runbooks provide consistent execution from source systems to the cloud. Our Transition Team captures system owner information, application dependencies, black out dates, firewall rules, DNS changes, load balancing configurations, data volume and more, along with steps needed to shutdown, move and start-up your systems.
After each migration wave, the Convergency Transition Team captures lessons learned from within the team, our stakeholders, application/system owners and other participants to determine what went well, what did not go so well and what could be done better next time. We work with you to evaluate this feedback and make adjustments to improve in the next wave.
"I believe the value of Convergency's Cloud Transition Service is our T-8 Process - the combination of experience, discovery, runbooks and project-specific lessons that deliver consistent and reliable results."
Experience has taught us several lessons. Compliance is a critical element to transition success. Convergency manages all aspects of compliance before, during and after the transition including privacy, security, regulatory and internal project management controls. We have experience in regulatory risk, GDPR as well as German and Netherlands Works Council reviews to ensure there are no barriers to a production transition.
We are AWS and Azure partners with team members trained and certified in the products we supply and support. What sets us apart is that we not only perform complete transitions from end-to-end, but we play well with others. We are often commissioned to fill the gap between data center providers and cloud service providers - leading the transition, providing direction, and solving for the gaps - we eliminate the finger pointing.
