01 - The challenge
The cloud is the engine of today’s innovation, the foundation of the digital transformation. In many cases complex interconnected systems need to be migrated to the cloud which can raise a number of issues. The architecture and life cycle of traditional applications as well as the associated cost models and operational processes in the cloud may require optimization and redesign. Applications running on today’s modern cloud platforms are expected to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability provided by the cloud.
02 - The solution
The decision-making process and predictability of cloud migration can be translated into two basic issues:
- What will my company gain from using the cloud in the short medium and long term? How does my business advantage come from this?
- What changes and expenditures do I need to make in order for migration to take place in the most optimal way?
TC2 team provides full support from the migration planning phase to the successful implementation of projects to system follow-up and operational support. The steps and elements of cloud migration are:
- Decision process preparation: availability needs assessment, cloud architecture design, architecture optimization suggestions, cost estimation, TCO calculation.
- Delivery of Proof of Concept project to validate cloud architecture, performance, integrations and costs.
- Optimization of development and operation processes, automations (DevOps).
- Design of a test and sharp system.
- Live system migration and deployment: data, configurations, DNS migration and migration to the new cloud system.
- Follow-up, regular review and optimization throughout the application lifecycle.

Cloud optimization (DevOps)
With the move to the cloud, the development and maintenance processes and habits also change, and efficiency gains a new meaning. The size and type of companies also determine what efficiency goals arise, and these can be achieved by DevOps, ie a set of infrastructure and application development tasks.
Support and Operation services
The project never ends with implementation. Operation, system availability, operational support, and ongoing improvements and modifications during operation make the picture complete and the system or application truly usable.
In order to make appropriate business and professional decisions regarding the use of the cloud, it is necessary to know in detail the components of the cloud, their relationship with each other, business models, and professional language. At both C-level and technical level, continuous professional training, participation in trainings and obtaining certificates are essential.
