To achieve adaptability, scale and accelerated evolution

Migrating to the Cloud is vital for your digital transformation

Cloud has become the new normal as companies of every size have realized the benefits of the cloud. For most organizations, the question isn’t “if” anymore; it’s “how fast can we move?” and “what are we moving first?”

Benefit #1 lorem

Increase Happiness

Yes, happiness. Both employee and customer happiness. As an application lead, marketer, or developer working with applications that provide restrictive capability, are bug prone, and constantly feeling like they are having to put out a fire, drains the fire in your belly to innovate. Customer's often feel similar pain but from their inability to do what they need done in the most convenient and least amount of effort way. Application modernization must put the customer first and reconsider the experience and how it makes people feel when its delivered.

Benefit #2 lorem

Increase Performance

An application modernization initiative will address performance bottlenecks or ability to scale by leveraging the native benefits of cloud and ensuring the software design can provide modular capability scaling. This often also reduces the cost of performance as well. Say goodbye to having your entire application come to a stand-still when a single capability is incurring high usage. There is no need for a bad customer experience because of software design.

Benefit #3 lorem

Reduce Cost

A pain often felt with dated applications is the high cost of change. These applications are usually littered with technical debt, lack of automated testing, manual deployments, restrictive quality assurance capability, and more that all increase the cost of change. To reduce this, a proper application modernization approach will ensure operational efficiency needs are designed from the start instead of a bolt-on later.

Benefit #4 lorem

Make the Experience Matter

When have you ever used a legacy application and were happy with the experience? Was it mobile friendly? Often the user experience during application modernization is put aside for more technology related drivers - those are very valuable as well but we mustn't forget who the application is serving, when, where, and why.

Through 2024, nearly all legacy applications migrated to public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) will require optimization to become more cost effective

Rearchitect

Rearchitect your way to scale, agility, and cost savings cloud migration

Some aging applications aren't compatible with cloud providers because of the architectural decisions that were made when the application was built. In these cases, the application might need to be rearchitected before migrated to the cloud. In other cases, applications that are cloud-compatible, but not cloud-native, might create cost efficiencies and operational efficiencies by rearchitecting the solution into a cloud-native application.

Rebuild

Rebuild your way to the cloud to align your business needs

In some scenarios, the delta that must be overcome to carry an application forward can be too large to justify further investment. This is especially true for applications that previously met the needs of a business but are now unsupported or misaligned with the current business processes. In this case, a new code base is created to align with a cloud-native approach.

Rebuild

Replace with a modernized available software cloud migration

Solutions are typically implemented by using the best technology and approach available at the time. Sometimes software as a service (SaaS) applications can provide all the necessary functionality for the hosted application. In these scenarios, a workload can be scheduled for future replacement, effectively removing it from the transformation effort.

Q&A

00

Yes. Being a Gold-certified Microsoft Azure partner, we are eligible to take advantage of Microsoft incentive programs. We will work with our Microsoft partner representative to make sure we are taking advantage of any Azure incentive programs Microsoft is offering in Canada. We are an ECIF approved Microsoft vendor in Canada.

01

We believe the value of migrating your applications to Microsoft Azure cloud is realized with modernization. However, there are situations when lift and shift migrations make sense such as meeting data centre contract renewal deadlines or software license expiration. We help with both, but with modernization always as our primary goal.

02

Our focus is developing custom Azure cloud modern software applications. We've been building custom Microsoft based applications for over 15 years with our team of Microsoft Azure certified software developers. Our development approach uses modern practices with microservices, single-page applications, ASP.NET MVC, Identity Server, .NET based CMS applications such as Sitecore, and older .NET web form applications. We have the capability go deep in your applications and understand the impact the software design has on infrastructure.

03

No - there are many managed services companies out there nowadays that offer a one-size-fits-many offering. Our application support services and 24/7 Azure cloud managed service offering is customized to the needs of our customers and sold as a bolt-on for software we have developed for customers looking for help operating. We develop software with operations in mind, therefore we are comfortable supporting it with confidence and tailored to your needs. We help companies with long-term operational support needs and companies who need temporary help operating until their internal teams are ready (Ask us about our build-operate-transfer engagement model).

04

Yes. Our Microsoft Azure Cloud Onboarding offering will set you up for success prior to our first cloud migration project. There are many things to consider such as, which application should I migrate first? How do I ensure we are delivering business value? Should I start with a brand new application or an existing application? How do I upskill my team? How will we operate once we are in the cloud? How many subscriptions should I create? We will help you get to the most appropriate answered tailored to your organization.

05

Yes. We have multiple ways we support helping you operate in the cloud. We can provide full responsibility with our "Operate with Assembly: Azure Cloud Managed Services" offering. Alternatively, we can temporarily operate your cloud while setting you up to transfer operations to your team when your ready as part of our Build-Operate-Transfer engagement model.

06

Yes. Our engineering team are fully capable of complete automation with your DevOps CI/CD pipelines using Infrastructure as Code. We even assemble fully customized software delivery platforms using the leading tooling so you can deliver faster.
