Cloud has become a key imperative for organizational IT strategy. It offers an infinitely scalable infrastructure available on-demand with “pay-as-you-go” applications and services. The new Cloud paradigm brings in efficiency, scalability and agility. NIIT Technologies offers a consultative and advisory approach via client-centric workshops to envision and reimagine a Cloud operating model and a Cloud deployment strategy aligned with business goals and outcomes. The clients get a full lifecycle and full stack service from strategy through migration and modernization.
The client, a global investment manager, was looking to transform to a Cloud-ready state and engaged NIIT Technologies. Leveraging our Cloud methodology, an assessment and migration plan was provided to the investment manager and foundation services were established. The foundation services were designed to adhere to the security and regulatory compliance policies of the financial institution. Following this, NIIT Technologies enabled the client to start their journey of a large infrastructure migration to Cloud.
Spanning across 15 months, this project was executed using an iterative (Agile) methodology to move candidate workloads (823 servers and 700 TB of data) to Azure. The migration leveraged the Cloud to enable them to drive enhanced value to their customers and to their organization. The automation approach enhanced the assurance of Cloud migration. Here are the highlights of some of the key steps that were executed during the migration:
This engagement is driving significant growth across a number of business KPIs.
