What is it?

Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements to a cloud or hosted computing environment.  There are various types of cloud migrations.  Within the IBM i platform, a common approach is the Lift and Shift method.  The “Lift” focuses on proven and streamlined procedures to move existing applications and data from on-premise footprints to single tenant cloud environments. The “Shift” upgrade proceeds with next steps focused on Cloud-Enabled state of the art technologies.  ISE leverages our IBM expertise, bringing these skills forward to optimize the “Lift and Shift” process. 

Reasons to Consider Migration to the Cloud

• Limited on-site resources

• Unlimited scalability
