Our Approach to Cloud Migration
It’s easy to find cloud migration plans focused solely on infrastructure technology. However, a narrow approach—and one that is not application specific—won’t work for most organizations, particularly those with a sensitive mission. Booz Allen is trusted to migrate, deploy, and manage the nation’s critical mission systems around the clock, ensuring that migration decisions are transparent, data driven, and designed for sustainability over time.
From Roadmap to 24/7 Operations
Booz Allen partners with organizations to develop a custom roadmap toward cloud migration, design contemporary cloud-native architectures, and ultimately drive cloud migrations and operations as a managed services provider. We help navigate the economics of the cloud, so clients can decrease system downtime and reduce infrastructure costs.
Purposeful, Automated Framework
Booz Allen has a repeatable cloud migration framework for clients to efficiently get complex application components prioritized, configured, and ready for the cloud. We examine the specific characteristics of each application—along with the data, functional, and mission needs across the portfolio—in order to deploy unique migration options, optimize technology and talent resources, and ultimately migrate purposefully to the most effective cloud architecture.
Designed for the Future Mission
We use hardened containers and contemporary architectures to provide portability and future-proof your data and applications so they’re not locked into one cloud infrastructure over time. Our cloud solutions are designed to advance the future of work and the mission itself—to support larger datasets, conduct more complex analytics, and facilitate the adoption of artificial intelligence.
