This is the first in the series of utilizing the Cloud Adoption Framework to move to the cloud. These are the actual slides I use when I work with customers on planning their migration.
Typically, the process starts with an assessment of their on-premise infrastructure using one of many tools to get an inventory of their datacenter as well as the services/software running, ports used, and connections between servers. This allows us to determine and build “move groups” so that we do not impact services during the migration. This subject is covered in more depth in the series. Because this process takes about two weeks to complete, that is the opportune time to complete the cloud adoption framework series of decks.
