Our Cloud consultants and architects use our Cloud Adoption Framework to recommend the Cloud Best Practices for our customers on infrastructure and enterprise applications migration to the Cloud platform.There are several strategies for migrating applications to new environments, including a phase-driven step-by-step strategy for migrating applications to the Cloud.

Cloud Migration – A Phased Approach

AsiaPac’s DevOps platform is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases customer’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables our clients to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.
