BBD achieves AWS Migration Services Competency!

BBD achieves AWS Migration Services Competency!

BBD is pleased to announce that we have achieved the AWS Migration Services Competency status in recognition of our proven technological competence and deep expertise in assisting clients on their migration journeys to the AWS cloud

After rigorous auditing processes, Amazon Web Services (AWS) awards this migration services competency to recognise a company’s ability to help clients modernise and migrate their application to the cloud. The process validated BBD’s ability to affectively migrate workloads to the cloud, but more importantly, to do so in a well-architected manner that ensures businesses are setup for success on their journey.

Achieving this competency differentiates BBD as an AWS Advanced Services Partner that provides specialised and demonstrated technical proficiency with proven success in application modernisation, ultimately delivering:

  • Faster and automated application portfolio assessments for modernisation, cutting down weeks of effort to days
  • Automated business case for application modernisation using containers and serverless services for clients running legacy application workloads on AWS
  • Tools for automated re-platforming and refactoring, as well as augmented refactoring by engineers
  • Management and governing of the application during the modernisation process

Benefits of migrating to the cloud

1. Trade fixed expense for variable expense

Rather than heavily investing in data centres and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can pay only when you consume computing resources, and pay only for how much you consume.

2. Massive economies of scale

Using cloud computing means you can achieve a lower variable cost than possible to get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers is aggregated in the cloud, providers such as AWS can achieve higher economies of scale, which translates into lower pay as-you-go prices.

3. Stop guessing capacity

Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often end up either sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. This is no longer an issue when utilising cloud computing. You can access as much or as little capacity as you need, and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes’ notice.

4. Increase speed and agility

In a cloud environment, new IT resources are only a click away, which means that you reduce the time to make those resources available to your engineering team from weeks to minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for your organisation as the time and cost it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.

5. Stop spending money running and maintaining data centres

You’re able to focus on projects that differentiate your business, and not the infrastructure. The cloud lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers.

6. Go global in minutes

Able to easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world. This ultimately means you can provide lower latency and a better overall experience for your customers at minimal cost.
