Migrating hundreds or thousands of workloads requires coordination and execution across multiple disciplines and teams. AWS approaches large-scale migrations in three phases: assess, mobilize, and migrate. Each phase builds on the previous one. This AWS Prescriptive Guidance strategy covers the assess phase and the mobilize phase. These phases set the foundation for accelerated migration at scale during the migrations phase.

This migration strategy includes methods and best practices for:

  • mobilizing your workforce and resources

  • establishing automation to migrate applications with an agile approach

  • migrating these assets to the AWS Cloud

This approach is based on the AWS Professional Services team's years of experience helping enterprise AWS customers mobilize for cloud adoption and migration.

This strategy is for anyone planning to migrate their on-premises workloads to the AWS Cloud: IT and business executives, program and project managers, product owners, and operations and infrastructure managers. It discusses how you can accelerate your cloud adoption, create a migration plan, set up a foundation through hands-on experience, and migrate your first set of applications to the AWS Cloud in weeks.
