Guidelines - AWS Prescriptive Guidance


You might find yourself simultaneously running different parts of this workstream with different workloads. For example, you do not need to finish collecting all data for all workloads before considering how to prioritize the workloads. In fact, you will likely do both of them at the same time. The key is to constantly ask “can I move this forward?” and do so if your answer is “yes!”

The three main parts of this workstream are data collection, prioritization, and planning.

  • Data collection is focused on understanding what data needs to be gathered and how it will be gathered.

  • Prioritization is focused on using the data you have collected about the migrating workloads in order to align the migration plan to your business and technical drivers for the migration.

  • Planning is focused on taking the prioritization of the workloads and combining that with the dependency analysis.
