Top 15 AWS Cloud Migration Partners You Can Rely on for Total Digital Transformation

Top 15 AWS Cloud Migration Partners You Can Rely on for Total Digital Transformation

Between 2023 and 2030, the value of cloud transformation could topple IT, crossing $1 trillion through innovation-driven growth and optimization. Business leaders are adopting new cloud migration strategies to prepare for the current economic challenges. Apart from setting up an advanced security infrastructure, managing cloud spending on migration is among the top challenges faced by modern CIOs. CIOs are adopting innovative cloud migration frameworks to migrate from their legacy ERP software or on-premise to fully loaded cloud-based tools. As new technologies such as FinOps, Artificial Intelligence, AutoML, and Infrastructure-as-a-service become part of the overall digital transformation journeys, more companies would see the real benefits of moving to a reliable Cloud platform with limitless potential across different business scenarios. But, this shift to cloud environment is riddled with challenges that need an immediate resolution.

According to McKinsey, cloud migration strategies are ripped by controversies and complications.

On one hand, a strong cloud migration policy drives greater productivity through the adoption of Agile and DevSecOps practices. On the other hand, a shaky migration based on “lift-and-shift” of on-premise applications could actually increase the cost of cloud infrastructure if these are not optimized and remediated. During uncertain times, cloud users rely on reputable migration and modernization infrastructure and managed service providers to optimize cost and manage security.

AWS is a world-class cloud provider that helps business leaders achieve ROI-centric cloud outcomes through continuous innovation and support in an agile DevSecOps environment. Even by AWS’s standards, it’s not possible to mobilize resources to fully meet the ever-growing demands of the customers in the migration space. That’s why AWS has built a strong community of AWS Cloud migration partners that help customers migrate their existing workloads to AWS Cloud based on 7Rs migration strategies.

The 7Rs in the AWS cloud migration strategies refer to:

  1. Retire
  2. Retain
  3. Rehost
  4. Relocate
  5. Repurchase
  6. Replatform
  7. Re-factor / Re-architect

Migrating to AWS Cloud can be fairly challenging and overwhelming for the IT and cloud management teams. It requires an exquisite knowledge of the AWS environment, tools, and the business-centric alignment that can start delivering results in a maturing FinOps landscape.

Today, it’s impossible to think of a cloud center of excellence that merely pivots on migration and innovation. As cloud costs increase at an uncontrolled rate, it is very important to refer to the family of AWS partners who actually help cloud managers respond to uncertainties with agility in a cost-controlled way. Security, ease of operation, customer experience, and agility– all these play a big role in cloud migration journeys in 2023.

Why do you need an AWS Partner for your cloud migration and modernization strategy? 

Choosing an AWS Partner accelerates your move to the AWS cloud with a customized adoption journey that meets your current and future business needs. Secondly, these partners help you with a seamless customer onboarding process within your newly migrated cloud environment. This onboarding process is based on careful analysis, planning, and execution that delivers optimal results when you get there with your cloud migration strategy.

In this article, we have featured the top fifteen AWS Partners who have demonstrated deep technical expertise in delivering customer success across multi-cloud, on-premise, and legacy infrastructures.

The partners include:

  1. Accenture
  2. IBM Consulting
  3. Cisco Systems
