Cloud Readiness Assessment

A cloud readiness assessment is an overarching process that encompasses organizational readiness, application discovery, and application assessments. These assessments turn an organization’s notion that it should move to the cloud into a detailed roadmap that explains how to achieve it and in what order the events must occur.

With more companies realizing the value in the agility and elasticity that virtual environments provide, readiness assessments are increasingly important, since they serve as a solid foundation before moving forward.

Cloud Journey

Using a prescriptive cloud & application assessment process and tooling, a cloud readiness assessment will identify and highlight service or capability gaps within your organization and pinpoint the applications that can be successfully moved to the cloud.

There is an industry idiom about the options that should be considered as part of a cloud readiness process. Different groups have coined them the R’s of cloud migration. The number of R’s range from 5 to 7 and include: Refactor, Replatform, Repurchase, Rehost, Relocated, Retain, and Retire. They represent the different strategies that can be applied to your existing digital ecosystem elements and what your business should consider doing with them as part of your digital transformation, cloudification, and modernization objectives.

Refactor (Re-architect)

It optimizes an on-premises application to support cloud architecture. It is the second migration strategy. Usually, falls on the other extreme of the migration effort. Because it requires a complete change and reengineering of the system or application logic to fully make use of all the cloud features.

Replatform (Lift & Reshape)

This type of migration is similar to re-hosting but requires a few changes to the application. Commonly, this approach is referred to as the lift-tinker-and-shift.

Repurchase (Drop & Shop)

This migration strategy entails essentially switching the legacy application in favor of a new but similar application on the cloud.

Rehost (Lift & Shift)

Re-hosting is the first strategy to lift and shift. Successful migration involves a server or an application as is to the new cloud environment.

Relocate (hypervisor-level lift and shift)

Move infrastructure to the cloud without purchasing new hardware, rewriting applications, or modifying your existing operations.

Retain (No Movement)

In some cases, the organization may decide not to touch certain applications and systems and postpone their migration for later in the future. Moreover, the application is too critical for modification and requires a more thorough business case analysis.

Retire (Decommission)

The strategy is about retiring systems and applications that an organization no longer needs. An organization finds applications during the discovery procedure as part of its inventory process. that are no longer actively used or have limited use.

A key objective of a cloud readiness process is to assess your existing business and digital eco-system to decide which of these strategies is most appropriate to each element.

The IDX Cloud Readiness assessment involves five high-level steps:

  1. Identify the scope and business cases for migration
  2. Evaluate available in-house resources
  3. Assess infrastructure requirements
  4. Assess security requirements
  5. Determine timeline and budget

IT Architecture

IDX IT and Enterprise Architecture Services help you plan and deliver a foundational technology architecture to maximize scalability and performance.

Our service follows a framework of five (5) blocks, each of which can be exercised independently, combined or executed in a controlled order. Each business is different and each business’ current situation will dictate which elements in the framework are appropriate for them. Our architectural team works with your team to first determine which if the blocks is appropriate for your situation and will produce the desired architectural result.

The framework blocks are:
Strategize: Envision and plan IT initiatives that align with business objectives to deliver tangible business outcomes
Modernize: Focus on agility and drive cost efficiency by leveraging best-in-class technology
Enhance: Amplify architecture-based capabilities and make them actionable
Renew: Optimize core systems to drive digital transformation, new business capabilities, and agility
Transform: Create future-proof architectures and platforms to enable new business models


Business and IT alignment are often a prerequisite for successful digital transformation, but history has shown that it is often just as important to focus on how IT can be a differentiator for your business. Our architectural framework uses an iterative model to accelerate knowledge gathering to rapidly prioritze pathways to unlock IT potential to benefit your business. Within this block we offer:

  • IT strategy and roadmap
  • Chief information officer (CIO) and chief technology officer (CTO) advisory
