Strategic Cloud Readiness Assessment
Azure TechCheck Assessment
Gauge the impact of an Azure cloud program on your existing IT infrastructure

Assessment Overview

The most important step in planning your Azure migration is understanding the baseline capabilities of your current systems. Softchoice’s Azure TechCheck is an ideal starting point and begins by taking a deep dive into your IT infrastructure.

Softchoice experts work with you to catalog all your technology silos, arming you with a fact-based assessment of your current operating state. We then consider a variety of migration paths, evaluating the costs, benefits and risks of each. This helps you choose the right path forward – one that serves your current needs, establishes a foundation for future growth and minimizes risk.

Who should be involved?

We recommend assembling a cross functional IT team with a senior sponsor to provide alignment to the issues, business drivers and guide prioritization.
