Responsiv can provide cloud strategy consulting to help with planning your migration to the cloud understanding the steps needed to move your systems with minimal downtime. We can help with Application Portfolio Management to understand your current systems and apply a TIME (tolerate-invest-migrate-eliminate) model to understand the best approach for each system.
Additionally, we can recommend how to structure your application for the cloud including stateless and stateful components to provide maximum scalability.
