Migrating Enterprise Vendors to AWS – Optimisation & License Assessment (OLA)
Achieve optimised cost and reduced risk at the start of your cloud journey
Many organisations struggle to comprehend the impact of cloud migration on their enterprise licensing from a compliance and financial perspective, impacting business case ROI and further technology investment, and the accumulation of non-compliance risk.
Organisations looking to move workloads into the cloud need help to understand the migration journey and the potential cost benefits.
Version 1’s AWS Optimisation & License Assessment
The AWS OLA process is designed to help customers start their journey to the cloud, and helps customers answer the following three questions:
- What does my on-premises estate look like today and what can I migrate to the cloud?
- How much will it cost me in the cloud? What are the potential savings/benefits?
- How should I go about migrating to the cloud?
A key element to costs is proprietary licensing models from vendors such as Microsoft and Oracle.
The OLA provides guidance on how to make use of existing on-premises licensing as well as identifying potential license savings after moving to the cloud.
