Azure Migration Assessment
Aligned to Microsoft’s Cloud Adoption Framework, Lexel will ensure your Azure migration is well considered, seamless and cost effective.
Delivered by qualified, experienced Azure migration experts and based on industry best practices, Lexel’s Azure Migration Assessment includes:

Discovery.  During the discovery phase, we understand and document your existing infrastructure, applications and overall business objectives driving the move to Azure.


Planning.  During the planning phase, we build a proposal including which applications to migrate, how to migrate each application, and when each migration should take place.


Evaluation.  The evaluation phase focuses on building the business case for your Microsoft Azure migration – ready for review and sign-off by the final decision makers.

Lexel’s Azure Migration Assessment will help your organisation clearly answer the following questions:
  • Of the applications and infrastructure you’re currently running; which should be migrated, modernised, retired, replaced, or maintained on-premises?
  • What risks are associated with an Azure migration, and how long the migration will take?
  • What the return on your investment for migration, based on current running costs, post-migration running costs, and the cost of migration itself, will be?
  • What additional benefits the cloud migration will bring to your business?
