More and more organisations are moving their IT systems to the cloud. This means they enjoy lower running costs, more flexibility and a faster time-to-market. Luminis has over ten years’ experience migrating IT systems to the cloud.

Advantages of using the cloud
The cloud can open new business potential for companies. It reduces the cost of infrastructure, because clients only pay for the cloud space they use; hardware or system administrators are no longer needed. There is also increased flexibility: the bandwidth can be altered as and when needed. So if you temporarily need more or less space it’s not an issue. These low running costs and high flexibility facilitate business agility and innovation. On top of that, the cloud assures that your security is always up-to-date.
We use the following methods for migration:
- Lift & shift – this method guarantees continuity. Your IT system is lifted up whole and moved into the cloud. This means you can’t take advantage of all the benefits the cloud offers
- Lift, tinker & shift – this method involves small adjustments to your systems, to allow them to work better in the cloud
- Forklift – this means building a new cloud native architecture from scratch. This will leave you with a fully scalable, secure system.
