    Where should I begin my migration journey?


    You understand the benefits inherent in cloud computing but your existing IT staff does not have the time, skills or budget it needs to collect information on what workloads and applications should be moved or how to bundle the migrations.


    The self-service Discovery module helps you collect accurate data about the existing environment and provides a clearer picture of IT assets so that you can launch a migration initiative in less than a week with no additional BAU resources.

    Without access to skilled migration engineers or an understanding of the available vendor tools, your migration project leader is failing to meet the migration project deadlines, threatening the overall timeline and budget.


    With IBM, you can tap into a global pool of skilled migration engineers who are trained in a broad range of tools. The IBM no-frills migration execution service performs migration of images and associated data to virtually any target environment.

    We can’t quite figure out what migration will cost.


    IT is under constant pressure to save money but migration is taking longer than expected, demanding more staff time and leading to cost overruns. It’s also hard to track and project the expenses.


    IBM Cloud Migration Services provide an image-based rate card to perform automated, self-sufficient discovery and migration execution. This can give you a clearer picture of the overall cost and simplify expense-tracking.
