From roadmap to migration: Cloud transformation in 6 months

Existing IT infrastructure with poor response times and high costs was holding a gas distribution company back.

We led a six-month shift to the cloud that dramatically improved performance, lowered costs, and gave the company the skills and technology to run their own cloud infrastructure.

Designed and executed a 6-month transformation—including training an IT team to run their own cloud.

What we did:

  • Prepared a detailed business case for cloud, from migration roadmap to 5-year operation plan
  • Technically assessed all 85 of the company’s apps to plan the migration
  • Designed a platform-based operating model to support digital transformation and cloud operations
  • Built a fully operational, secure cloud infrastructure MVP in 12 weeks—ready to run over 70 cloud services and support migration
  • Established a Cloud Center of Excellence, leaving IT teams with the capabilities to operate their new cloud on their own
