Mindex Migration Approach

3 Simple Steps to Your Migration Game Plan!

We use an agile-based migration methodology that employs proven frameworks to evaluate your company’s capabilities and environment, reducing the cost and risk of migrations.
The first step in the migration process is the Assess stage.

Rapid Discovery

Know your assets, expenses, and explore possibilities.

Mindex Discovery Tooling

We deploy agent-less technology that grabs a list of your assets to show how well they're utilized, whether they're over-provisioned, if there are any zombie servers out there, and more!

Optimization & Licensing Assessment (OLA)

Our team will run an OLA to show your owned licenses, expenses, software assurance compatibility with platforms like AWS, and your overall licensing landscape.

TCO Analysis

Before renewing licensing, this is an opportunity to understand if there are better alternatives out there for your business by reviewing licensing options in 1 or 3-year increments, TCO, and more.

Future State Mockups

We'll highlight future scenarios including maintaining your current state, migrating workloads to the cloud, and modernization efforts.

The second step in the migration process is the mobilize stage.

Cloud Game Plan

Develop migration plan and future-proof cloud environment.

Application Dependency Mapping

We'll identify workloads that meet your business needs.

Choose the right "R"!

We'll determine if workloads should be Re-hosted, Refactored, or Re-platformed, or if they should be retired, repurchased, or retained. We'll compare options workload by workload!

High-Level Design of Landing Zone

Landing zone build-out varies for each organization based on your assets, workloads, and future plans. We'll follow well-architected frameworks to ensure alignment with your goals. Let's get it right the first time!
