Cloud Horizons: SME Data Migration Pilot


What to Expect

What You Takeaway

Who is this Service for?


Cloud Horizons is a service engineered to guide SMEs through their first critical transition from local data storage to cloud-based solutions.  The primary purpose of the service is to demonstrate the benefits to transition from traditional on-premises data storage systems to cloud-based solutions by selecting a project from within your business.

Beyond the technical aspects of data migration, a shift to the cloud is a shift in business philosophy. Cloud migration can be transformational to a business into a more agile, innovative, and scalable entity. The cloud environment offers more than just storage solutions; it opens new avenues for data accessibility, data scalability, data analytics, process automation, and seamless workflow integrations.

What to Expect

  • Assessment and Planning: Considering the scale and nature of the data to be migrated, a project will be selected for the pilot.  
  • Cloud Environment Setup: Set up the appropriate cloud infrastructure, including selection of the cloud service provider that best fits the client’s needs (e.g., AWS, Azure, Google Cloud).  
  • Data Migration: Securely transferring data from the SME’s servers to the cloud environment.   
  • Integration: All migrated data and applications are properly integrated and functional.  
  • Testing and Validation: Testing to confirm that data integrity is maintained post-migration.  
  • Training and Support: A training session for the SME staff.  


The following deliverables will be provided:  

  • Completed Cloud Migration: All specified data, applications, and services successfully migrated to the cloud environment for the defined Pilot. 
  • Cloud Infrastructure Setup: A functional cloud infrastructure.  
  • Migration Report: A report detailing the migration process and data integrity checks.
