Application Modernization & Cloud Migration

Migrating to the cloud is currently the top priority for companies worldwide. It is an integral element of modern IT strategies and the most effective way to scale products and services to gain competitive advantages. However, if not properly managed, cloud migrations will result in extra complexity in organizations.

How it Works

Requirements for a Successful
Cloud Migration

To achieve a successful migration, strategic objectives must be linked to transformation initiatives to understand how evolving architecture will affect the overall performance of a business. LeanIX supports high-level transformation planning plus automated methods of governing and monitoring IT entities — both during and after migrations.
